What’s new in 5nine Cloud Security v7

What's new in 5nine Cloud Security v7

  • Advanced Intrusion Detection through Integration with Snort for Business NEW – 5nine Cloud Security v7 offers a more advanced subscription for intrusion detection (IDS) with Snort for Business. Snort provides a community continually reviews, tests, and offers improvements to the Snort source code to detect all possible types of network attacks. With the upgraded Business addition, you can now have centralized updating that you control, and immediate access to the latest signatures, instead of having to wait for up to a month.
  • Automatic & Immediate Protection with Default VM Security NEW – Guarantee higher levels of business continuity and reliability with features that will let you automatically and immediately protect every virtual machine. With the new Default VM Security settings, you can instantly place a VM into a security group as soon as it is created, ensuring it has globally consistent firewall, intrusion detection, and network traffic scanning settings. Free up your valuable operational resources, increase performance, and reduce the risk of misconfigured security policies.
  • Enhanced Security Event Logging, Filtering and Reporting NEW – 5nine Cloud Security continue to advance its logging capabilities, now allowing certain conditions to create automated responses to network security events so you can customize the event’s alerting threshold and retention policy. With new searching capabilities you can quickly find the event or alert you are looking for.
  • Centralized Notifications, Alerts and State Information NEW - Prevent yourself from being overwhelmed with too much noise causing you to miss the important alarms. Through a centralized console you can see the security information across all your hosts and virtual machines. Now the entire 5nine Cloud Security solution can be monitored, including the different services and agents, to ensure that it is continually operational.
  • Antivirus and Intrusion Detection Scanning and Update Management NEW - Gain even more precise control over the performance of your system by designating a maximum number of simultaneous AV scans. Update antivirus and intrusion detection signatures for your entire Hyper-V infrastructure through local proxy servers to keep hosts disconnected from the public Internet to minimize their vulnerability to being attacked. 5nine also boasts its unique host-based security management where definitions only have to be distributed to the Hyper-V host, without having to update the VMs themselves.
  • Network Traffic Anomaly Management NEW - Acquire a security solution which adapts to you. 5nine Cloud Security continually logs and monitors statistics about your network traffic, packets, and their sizes. Then, using proprietary heuristics, it creates a baseline of your normal operating traffic throughout the day. It then continually monitors your environment, and if values exceed the alert sensitivity setting it will immediately notify you about the possibility of an attack.
  • Migrate Security Rules between Systems NEW - Copy your security policies between different datacenters or labs even if you have multiple isolated datacenters or branch offices that have no direct connection. Migrate your 5nine Cloud Security settings to other environments to quickly grow your virtual environment while guaranteeing consistent policies are universally applied.

  • New Analytics and Alerting for Network Traffic Anomalies – Detect a variety of threats from suspicious network behavior and other advanced threats. 5nine Cloud Security will create a baseline of normal network traffic patterns for your virtualized environment, then when it identifies an anomaly it will alert the administrator that a threat could be present.
  • Protect Against New Types of Security & Spoofing Attacks – Ensure that information coming into the system has not been tampered with in any form on its way using error-checking code and control communication between VMs. 5nine Cloud Security has enhanced its own security once again by checking that its own security reporting data is not being spoofed.
  • Enhanced Firewall Protection with IP Address Matching - Increase your protection with the new IP address matching option to identify a specific server in the filtering rules.
  • Automate & Schedule Firewall Rules - Increase control over your system and it’s settings by specifying firewall rule timeframes. Use rules and scheduling tools to define, filter, and tune VM access.
  • Improved Datacenter Integration through Flexible Frame Size Support - Manage and specify any custom frame type for traffic rules. Avoid blocking service packets from communicating with network hardware by making those properly defined and preconfigured within the system.
  • Monitor the Availability of 5nine Cloud Security Components - Feel assured that specific 5nine Cloud Security services are available and healthy with the new host state monitoring capabilities. Now admins can see the current state of the components from the console and can review the history of changes in state for a specific host without the need to manually check each service.

PDF logo Product Overview
PDF logo Getting Started Guide

As the number of tenants and virtual machines increases, it becomes more difficult for cloud service providers to control the level of protection for every single user, without requiring the tenant to install security software, or worrying about them accidently or deliberately disabling the protection.

Now hosting providers can confidently protect each of their customers running Windows or Linux. Administrators can apply a universal security level for their users with global rules configuration. At the same time, direct integration with the Hyper-V Virtual Switch adds another layer of security to your business, along with confidence that clients will be protected if they provision their own virtual machines. Additionally, compliance enforcement with 5nine Cloud Security Azure Pack Extension meets the required compliance standards and increases a service provider’s potential customer base.

By offering customers a self-service security solution, hosting providers can provide more value-added services, increasing both customer satisfaction and revenue.

KEY CAPABILITIES FOR SECURING YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR HOSTED CUSTOMERS
