Accelerate and secure VM deployments with the only agentless solution for Hyper-V
Agentless Incremental Scan Log
Traditional endpoint security requires system administrators to install agents on every virtual machine in the environment. This legacy approach increases the deployment time of all new VMs and exposes the virtual machine to scripts or users that could inject malicious code or consume valuable resources. 5nine Cloud Security does not require agents to be installed inside the virtual machine, so they can be deployed faster and more securely.
- Alternative to impractical, yet traditional, endpoint management
- Industry’s fastest AV scans with the lowest performance overhead
Requires only Virtual Machine Manager to minimize your management Footprint
Security Configuration via SCVMM
The System Center suite provides some security tools through Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Endpoint Protection (SCEP), however these components require a complex configuration of management, update, and proxy servers. Additionally System Center continues to use traditional agent-based security and access to only a single library of antivirus definitions. 5nine Cloud Security has a simple configuration, small installation footprint, and lets you choose from multiple antivirus engines. While System Center offers a firewall and antivirus, 5nine Cloud Security also includes intrusion detection and network traffic scanning capabilities for broader protection.
- Set up SC endpoint protection, which requires SC Configuration Manager
- Our solution is lightweight and scalable
Scales to protect the largest enterprises running System Center and the Microsoft Cloud
You can reduce the number of servers your need to support all of your tenants and their virtual machines with 5nine Cloud Security. Legacy endpoint security solutions do not work well in virtualized environments as they require agents which can cause a significant performance hit on each VM. 5nine Cloud Security leads the industry with scans up to 70 times faster than other solutions, minimizing security performance bottlenecks so you can run up to 30% more VMs on each host, allowing you to maximize your return on infrastructure investments.

Simplified Azure Security with AzSec
5nine AzSec console
5nine AzSec is an Azure Security solution that integrates with 5nine Cloud Security for simplified firewall log and rule management. System administrators who have responsibility for Azure security can streamline compliance by using the bundled offering to export firewall logs from Azure to 5nine Cloud Security Syslog, SPLUNK, OMS and other SIEM / UEBA systems.
Azure firewall logs can also be analyzed when the AzSec addon is installed during the Cloud Security setup. You can see the log statistics, trends and pattern analysis in the 'Statistics' tab within the AzSec addon, which enables hybrid cloud administrators to more effectively detect suspicious activity across Azure and Hyper-V. 5nine AzSec also makes it easier to configure Azure firewall rules, which dramatically shortens Azure security projects.
When AzSec is installed as part of Cloud Security, you can export Azure Firewall logs into Syslog, SPLUNK and other SIEM / UEBA systems.
Please Note: The standalone version of 5nine AzSec does not have log analysis or advanced export capabilities. These features only come when installed with 5nine Cloud Security. The 5nine AzSec addon installer is included within the download of 5nine Cloud Security Version 10.

Meet Compliance Mandates for Azure Firewall Log Retention
Azure Log Settings
Many compliance requirements mandate that Azure firewall logs be retained separately from the server in which they were generated. The process is complex and multistep if done manually through the Azure portal. Fortunately, the integration between 5nine AzSec and 5nine Cloud Security enables you to export and retain Azure firewall logs to your SIEM or UEBA system of choice. Azure firewall log data is first pulled into 5nine AzSec, which then passes the data to 5nine Cloud Security, which then ported to either syslog, SPLUNK or your SIEM / UEBA system of choice.
- Simplify Azure firewall log retention
- Export Azure firewall logs to syslog (subsequently to OMS), SPLUNK and other SIEM systems
- Meet regulatory compliance
Simplify Discovery of Azure Firewall Anomalies
Anomalies in Azure network traffic may indicate threats like malware, hacking attempts or misconfigurations. Without visibility of these anomalies you won't know whether or not your Azure-based virtual machines are at risk. Detect threats before they cause downtime by using 5nine Cloud Security with AzSec to monitor inbound and outbound network traffic over a defined timeframe. Azure virtual firewall logs are ported into 5nine Cloud Security, which establishes a baseline for normal traffic patterns.
- Single access point to monitor Hyper-V and Azure network traffic anomalies
- Get alerts via email of suspicious activity
