As we talk about security and Microsoft Azure, traditional antimalware is still a topic of discussion and something that is still needed. If you’ve created a Virtual Machine in Azure through the gallery, you’ve probably seen that you now have the ability to add security extensions to your virtual machines.
What this means is that you have the ability to deploy a new VM with one of these Anti-malware engines installed in your initial image.
If you need to deploy Antimalware to an existing machine, you can do that as well. There are PowerShell scripts that can be run on existing VMs to install any of these engines. Check out this article, it provides more detail on each of the Security Extensions and how to install a Security Extension in an existing VM.
