Strengthen security and compliance at each point across the Hyper-V attack surface

5nine Cloud Security provides multi-layered security with an integrated virtual firewall, agentless antivirus and malware protection, along with an intrusion detection system (IDS) all in one package. 5nine is designed to specifically address every Hyper-V security vulnerability using patent-pending technologies, eliminating the need to install additional expensive and resource-consuming security software. The centralized management console simplifies administration of security tasks and provides auditing capabilities for compliance. You can now get the protection you require without needing to be a security specialist.

  • Choice of industry-leading antivirus & antimalware engines
  • Virtual Firewall protects Virtual Machines with any Guest OS
  • Intrusion detection analyzes and identifies suspicious traffic patterns
  • Network anomaly analytics immediately alerts you through email when a threat is detected
  • Monitor network traffic in real-time for threats

Maximize performance with the fastest, least disruptive Hyper-V security capabilities

By using the only security solution optimized for Hyper-V, you can maximize your performance by locally analyzing and securing your network traffic without routing it through external appliances. Additionally, 5nine leverages the industry’s fastest security scanning technology, which detects malicious files without causing antivirus storms or performance bottlenecks, allowing you to run more VMs on each host. Now you can spend less on hardware by increasing your VM density by up to 30%.

  • Instant threat protection for all virtual resources
  • Total protection of all virtual networks to avoid “blind spots”
  • Enterprise-grade speed and scalability for your distributed virtual infrastructure

Automatically protect virtual machines, networks and storage

Guarantee higher levels of business continuity and reliability with features that will let you automatically and immediately protect every virtual machine. Using a variety of built-in automation tools you can easily script custom security policies to protect your virtual infrastructure and software-defined networks (SDN). Now you can save time as you free up your valuable operational resources, increase performance, and reduce the risk of misconfigured security policies.

Eliminate malicious and accidental administrative changes

Administrators no longer need to be trusted with access to every virtual machine to manage security, which enables genuine private multi-tenant environments and VM isolation. Since no security component is required to run inside the virtual machine, the user never sees it, never has to update it, never has to manage it, and can never disable it. With 5nine Cloud Security’s unique agentless design, your users will not even notice that they are being protected!
