5nine Software Named a Finalist for Software Innovation Solution of the Year in the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2015
The leading provider of strategic business intelligence, news and analysis on the European IT marketplace announced the finalists for the awards
CHICAGO, IL (Feb. 11, 2015) – 5nine Software, the leading global Hyper-V virtualization management and security provider, was named a finalist for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2015 in the ISV category for Software Innovation Solution of the Year by IT Europa. The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognize the crucial role that ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real world solutions. There were eight categories for ISVs spanning all major customer and solution segments, from SMB to large enterprises and the public sector, and each entry had to be supported by an endorsement by a client.
The solution which received the nomination was 5nine Manager for Hyper-V with Antivirus. This easy-to-use and cost-effective management solution provides most of the features of Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager that SMB’s need for everyday Hyper-V management. Additionally it offers agentless anti-malware and antivirus protection specifically for Microsoft Hyper-V. Agentless antivirus detects viruses and malware and improves the security of the Hyper-V virtual environment without causing antivirus storms or performance bottlenecks. 5nine Manager with Antivirus installs antivirus only once per host rather than on each virtual machine (VM), which means that the agent consumes almost no VM resources. Special incremental scan technology tracks file changes and scans only changed files, resulting in scans that are up to 70X faster than conventional full system scans.
IT Europa is the leading provider of strategic business intelligence, news and analysis on the European IT marketplace and the primary channels that serve it. The company publishes European channel publications such as the IT Europa Newsletter, markets a range of database reports and organizes European conferences and events for the IT and Telecoms sectors.
