5nine Cloud Security Optimizes the Leading Antivirus Solution for Microsoft Hyper-V
CHICAGO, IL, MARCH 16, 2016 - 5nine Software, the leading global Hyper-V virtualization security and management provider, announced that it has formed a partnership with Bitdefender, a leading developer of anti-malware. 5nine Cloud Security and 5nine Manager with Antivirus now integrates with the Bitdefender antivirus engine, and optimizes it for virtualized datacenters running Microsoft Hyper-V. The joint solution is available for purchase from 5nine and its partners today.
"The partnership with Bitdefender enhances 5nine's ability to deliver the industry’s only unified security and compliance solution designed to specifically address every Hyper-V vulnerability across every virtual resource," said Morgan Holm, VP of Product Management at 5nine Software. "We are excited to integrate Bitdefender’s leading anti-malware engine into both 5nine Cloud Security and 5nine Manager with Antivirus."
Bitdefender and 5nine Software have developed and tested their joint solutions for compatibility and performance with Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V. The partnership enables 5nine to resell Bitdefender directly to end-users, providing a single vendor for licensing and support. Whether the customer is an SMB with a few Hyper-V hosts, or a larger organization running multiple clusters, Bitdefender and 5nine will provide simple and affordable Hyper-V security and management, without needing a security specialist.
5nine Cloud Security and 5nine Manager with Antivirus will enable Hyper-V customers to:
- improve their security and compliance with the only unified solution designed for Hyper-V
- Maximize their performance with the fastest and least disruptive security solution
- Automate protection for virtual machines, networks and storage
