Additional Information

The vShield Endpoint Thin Agent must be installed on each guest virtual machine to be protected. Virtual machines installed with the Thin Agent are automatically protected whenever they are started on an ESX/ESXi host installed with the security solution. That is, protected virtual machines retain the security protection through shut downs and restarts, and even after a vMotion move to another ESX/ESXi host that has the security solution installed.
For more information, see the vShield Quick Start Guide from the VMware vCloud Networking and Security Documentation.
