Using virtual machines

Below are some recommendations for using the
CylancePROTECT Desktop
Agent on a virtual machine image. For best practices, see Best practices for deploying
CylancePROTECT Desktop
on Windows virtual machines
  • For non-persistent VDI environments, you can use Agent 1490 or higher and an installation parameter to instruct the Agent during installation that will be running in a pool of cloned images. This will enable the Agent to recognize each clone as a unique endpoint and persist their identification when they refresh.
  • Some virtual machine software has security settings that conflict with

    ’s Memory Protection feature. This conflict may result in an unresponsive virtual machine. If this happens, you should either disable the Memory Protection feature or use different virtual machine software.
