A method for inserting endpoint management agents into virtual machines. The method may include 1) identifying a process space of a virtual machine, the process space comprising at least one process of the virtual machine, 2) interrupting the process of the virtual machine by causing execution to transfer from the process of the virtual machine to an agent-insertion module that executes outside the process space of the virtual machine, 3) injecting, via the agent-insertion module, an endpoint management agent into the virtual machine, and 4) performing one or more endpoint management tasks on the virtual machine by causing the endpoint management agent to execute within the process space of the virtual machine. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.
