Security requirements for hosting providers in a virtual environment are highly complex and must support a unique business model. Multi-tenant security must be managed by virtual machine, customer, and organizational unit, and maintaining a high quality of service level is required on a granular basis. To maintain compliance, hosting companies must effectively collect and audit data on each virtual machine—and control and protect intra VM traffic.
When hundreds—or thousands—of machines are involved, deploying duplicate copies of anti-malware software across shared resources isn’t an option. This agent-based approach consumes valuable Hyper-V resources, reduces the consolidation ratio and can cause anti-virus storms that also impact performance.
5nine’s agent-less architecture delivers better security, compliance and performance for Hyper-V public cloud without degrading performance and continuity. It allows hosting companies to manage multi-tenant security by VM, customer, and organizational unit—a requirement of their business model.
With 5nine, hosting providers can:
- Improve performance and streamline deployment with an agent-less architecture
- Support multi-tenancy environments with full protection of public cloud
- Deliver a higher level of VM density without the requirement of additional hardware
- Deliver security and compliance by customer
