5nine Software Releases 5nine Cloud Security v7 as Microsoft Hyper-V's Most Comprehensive Security Solution Ever
5nine Software, the leading global Hyper-V virtualization security and management provider, today announced the release of the industry's leading security and compliance solution 5nine Cloud Security v7. The new version automatically protects virtual machines (VMs) without requiring any installation, provides advanced logging and alerting capabilities, and amplifies intrusion detection (IDS) through integration with Snort for Business.

"We are very pleased to be offering dozens of new enhancements that will help our customers meet greater compliance standards and have better insight into their own security operations," said Symon Perriman, VP of Business Development at 5nine Software. "With the new 5nine Cloud Security v7, users can benefit from collective knowledge of security teams from around the world with the industry's leading intrusion detection engine from Snort, and rest assured their Hyper-V infrastructure is protected."

Advanced intrusion detection can now be reached through integration of 5nine Cloud Security with Snort for Business. Snort provides a community continually reviews, tests, and offers improvements to the Snort source code to detect all possible types of network attacks. The new 5nine Cloud Security v7 offers a subscription for IDS with Snort for Business allowing customers to have centralized updating and immediate access to the latest signatures, instead of having to wait for up to a month. 

Other highlights of the new version include:

  • Automatic & Immediate Protection with Default VM Security: now a VM can be instantly placed into a security group as soon as it is created, ensuring it has globally consistent firewall, intrusion detection, and network traffic scanning settings. This will save valuable operational resources, increase performance, and reduce the risk of misconfigured security policies.
  • Enhanced Security Event Logging, Filtering and Reporting: 5nine Cloud Security v7 allows certain conditions to create automated responses to network security events so the users can customize the event's alerting threshold and retention policy. 
  • Antivirus and Intrusion Detection Scanning and Update Management: 5nine customers can now gain more control over performance of the system by designating a maximum number of simultaneous AV scans in order to prevent hosts from CPU or storage bottlenecks. 5nine Cloud Security also offers a centralized approach for updating the antivirus and intrusion detection signatures for entire Hyper-V infrastructure through local proxy servers minimizing their vulnerability to being attacked from public Internet.

5nine Cloud Security v7 is available immediately. It is licensed per 2 CPU, starting at $199. For more information or to download a free 30-day trial version, please visit:
