    hi,

    With the success of the cloud, VMs are more and more deployed.
    A new market horizon for the AV industry.
    McAfee and Kaspersky are already present in this market

    Specialized solutions come at the right time to take the wagon of this niche market.

    -Hypertection, agentless antivirus based on MSE and Clam AV
    http://www.hypertection.com

    Currently in beta phase.

    -5nine Manager, free edition available, more complete as it provides firewall features http://www.5nine.com/5nine-hyper-v-security-free-and-scanner.aspx

    VMWare article about AV in VM

    This is for information purpose, and i will not discuss about the absolute need of these solutions, especially regarding the limited VM threats landscape...

    I have seen that approach in the past;
    e,g, BitDefender Free have some components with "AVC HyperVisor" as internal name, displayed in the Device Manager as "AVC HV"

    That could be a reason why such approach is very effective when combining detection and removal at deepest level of integration, and better performance because the hyperVisor removes the need of a binary emulator
