This week, at Microsoft TechEd North America 2012, 5nine Software, one of the most active companies in the Hyper-V ecosystem, announced Release Candidate of 5nine Security Manager for Hyper-V, its agentless Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware and Virtual Firewall solution.
Security Manager works with Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Release Candidates and benefits of the new Windows Server Hyper-V virtual switch and the Windows Filtering Platform (WFP).
The solution is a combination of multiple protection modules managed centrally, including anti-virus (based on Sophos Anti-Virus Enterprise engine), anti-malware, IDS, web application protection, log inspection and programmatic virtual firewall.
Main Features and benefits:
- Isolating and safeguarding VMs/VPSs from a security perspective; detecting infected virtual machines and hosts without excessive performance overhead, which can cause ‘antivirus storms’ and other types of workload bottlenecks;
- Fast and effective anti-malware scans of both virtual machines and hosts using unique technologies;
- Secure network virtualization and multi-tenant firewalling;
5nine Security Manager 3.0 will be commercially available simultaneously with the release of Windows Server 2012 and will be licensed on per-VM basis.
