Best practice for Hyper-V server?

Hi

What would be best action to secure Hyper-V server? As to my understanding the host doesn't need antivirus but guest VM's do. Currently there are PSB subscription on workstations so can I just add PSB products to guest VM's.

    Hello,

    That's how you get screen time on CNN and BBC News (provided your company is big enough to be news-worthy).

    F-Secure has a specialized protection suite for virtualization and cloud environments, including H-V 2012R2. The method is called "Scanning and Reputation Server" but I think the SMB-oriented PSB offering doesn't include it and it's only found in the corporate-oriented F-Secure Business Suite.
