Orlando, FL (July 14, 2015) – 5nine Software, the leading global Hyper-V virtualization security and management provider, today announced the availability of 5nine Cloud Security v6, the first and only agentless security and compliance solution built specifically for the Microsoft Cloud Platform and Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs) running Windows and Linux. With the new 5nine Cloud Security v6, a user can be protected from a variety of new vulnerabilities from suspicious network behavior and other advanced threats. 5nine Cloud Security v6 creates a baseline of normal network traffic patterns for the user’s virtualized environment and when it identifies an anomaly, it alerts the administrator that a threat could be present. The new 5nine Cloud Security v6 helps meet the security and compliance requirements for any business by being able to analyze and report on the historical data as a network forensics tool.
“Recent security breaches and appearance of new more sophisticated malware specifically targeting virtualized environments clearly shows a growing need in advanced security solutions,“ said Symon Perriman, VP of Business Development, 5nine Software. “With this latest release of our flagship solution, 5nine introduces new standards of analytics and protection of the Hyper-V environment.”
5nine Cloud Security v6 also enhanced its own security once again by adding integrity checks to ensure that the data is not being spoofed. This will ensure that information coming into the system has not been tampered with in any form on its way using error-checking code. To strengthen 5nine Cloud Security’s anti-spoofing detection, the system can now perform packet size and payload length checks for all packets coming into the system. This can prevent possible scenarios like a buffer overflow attack, which can let one VM write to the memory of another VM.
Other features of 5nine Cloud Security v6 include:
- Enhanced firewall protection with IP address matching;
- Automated and scheduled firewall rules;
- Improved datacenter integration through flexible frame size support;
- Monitoring the availability of 5nine cloud security components.
