Cloud Security Features

Next-Generation Virtual Firewall 

Integrates virtual firewall controls and isolates traffic between all types of VMs, regardless of guest OS.

  • Configurable templates enable you to set up security policies through either the 5nine Console or SCVMM
  • Multitenancy support lets you isolate both individual VMs and specific VM groups
  • Advanced protection is provided at Hyper-V server’s parent partition level

Agentless Antivirus 

Agentless antivirus is located at the hypervisor level and leverages your choice of engine and signature database.

  • Access control prevents system administrators from disabling antivirus
  • Scanning technology performs incremental scans 70X faster than competitors while reducing load on the host by up to 30%
  • Agentless architecture and granular VM control makes managing host resources and avoiding antivirus storms a breeze
  • Network traffic scanning with active VM defense allows you to scan hard disk and guest partition memory
  • Centralized signature database is updated through a local proxy server so hosts are isolated from public networks
  • Intuitive interface provides the ability to configure and schedule scanning while excluding nonessential files and folders

360° Intrusion Detection System  

Our IDS technology leverages Cisco Snort for Business to analyze all suspicious traffic within the Hyper-V virtual switch.

  • Packet anomalies are immediately identified so you can quickly address issues that may represent attacks
  • North-South and East-West detection identifies both external and internal threats, where intrusions may pass between VMs

Advanced Anomaly Analysis

System detects abnormal heuristics and behavior using machine learning to measure resource usage against historic baselines.

  • Alerting and reporting provides the detailed information and real-time insight needed to identify potential attacks
  • Advanced AI algorithms are used to continuously monitor your system for anomalies and deviations

Smart Firewall for Microsoft Azure

Intelligent technology creates, maintains and manages inbound and outbound traffic rules within your Microsoft Cloud.

  • Firewall log data can be centrally viewed, saved and exported
  • Security rules can be created and applied in a single step
  • Pre-built templates enable you to apply firewall rules without any hassle
  • OMS alerts can be configured from the same console you use to manage Azure Security
  • Compliance requirements are easily met with advanced log retention and analysis
  • Azure spending and usage can be centrally monitored for more efficient resource utilization
