Currently, guest integrity agent monitors the operating system of the guest VM for attacks and security violations. Starting from 2.3.2, for enhanced security and to reduce the attack surfaces effectively, enhanced guest integrity driver is also available. After upgrading to the AppDefense Guest Module 2.3.2 or later, you can use and test the enhanced integrity feature. Enhanced integrity feature is available as a beta feature. To enable and test the feature, contact the VMware AppDefense support team.

You can contact the VMware AppDefense support team at or through the AppDefense Manager support panel chat.

After AppDefense provisions the feature, ensure that the system requirements are satisfied and then enable the enhanced integrity driver instead of the guest integrity driver.

Note: As enhanced integrity is in a beta phase, do NOT enable enhanced integrity on guest VMs in your Production environment.
