By CIOReview | Wednesday, November 11, 2015

CHICAGO, IL: 5nine Software now joins Gridstore Technology Alliance Partner Program to deliver fully tested cloud security products to its customers.  As part of the partner program, 5nine solutions are integrated with the all-flash HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) from Gridstore.

The integration changes the data center processes by influencing higher virtual machine (VM) density, faster storage and I/O performance – all at lower administration costs. 5nine’s Cloud Security solution presents maximum performance corresponding to the virtual infrastructure of Gridstore’s customers.

Gridstore HyperConverged Infrastructure – single appliance that delivers computing, storage and storage networking, is easy to deploy and manage. Comparatively, Gridstore HCI needs 75 percent less physical infrastructure and 65 percent less cost-per-VM.

5nine has built the agentless security solution majorly to comply with Microsoft Cloud OS and Hyper-V, utilizing the extensibility of Hyper-V switch. The solution protects the multi-layered architecture with firewall, anti-virus and an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). While the agentless firewall works on traffic control and virtual machine isolation, the antivirus carries out scans upto 70 percent faster using the patent-pending technologies. The IDS also instantly detects and prevents malicious attacks.
