What else can be used here with min cost and better service?
vShield dependency with VC /Esxi Licensing ?

You’ll have to accept the risk of infection,

1. Regular patching
2. Firewall enabled
3. If Windows Group policy lock down
4. Use Security Lockdown toolkit
5. Regular scan for security
6. Restrict logins and admin access

VShield is end of life
