5nine Software Announces Security Heartbeat Service and Virtual Firewall 2.0 for Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008


Holmdel, NJ (PRWEB) July 14, 2010

Holmdel, NJ, USA, July 14, 2010. – 5nine Software today announced 5nine Virtual Firewall 2.0 for Microsoft Hyper-V – powerful and easy to use virtual firewall for Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008 / R2. 5nine Virtual Firewall controls network traffic between virtual machines, detects/blocks malicious attacks and improves the security of a virtualized environment.

Both SMB and large size Enterprise deployments or hosting companies need v-Firewall to harden security of the virtual machines and the Virtual host system.

5nine Virtual Firewall provides an ability to monitor and control network traffic between virtual machines and external (physical) network, as well as between virtual machines within the virtual network. System Administrator can define the rules for different types of traffic coming to/from virtual machines, as well as the ports used. This could be done both programmatically (with simple PowerShell API), or using administrative application running on a management Virtual machine or a standalone web server.

Special heartbeat service continuously checks if the security rules/policies are enforced, and stops/pauses the virtual machine if its network filter is not communicated, which prevents exposure of the VMs to wide range of exploits.

By controlling incoming and outgoing network traffic for each Hyper-V virtual machine 5nine Virtual Firewall helps to improve the security of a virtual environment, and enforces various compliance best practices and standards, including PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

5nine Virtual Firewall can be used with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager when virtual machine is provisioned, or deployed on the physical machine(s) prior to P2V Migration.

Virtual Firewall also keeps statistics for number of packets and average size of each packet. Based on this statistics Virtual Firewall creates a network usage pattern, and notifies the user if it has changed, which often indicates malicious attack or a Malware. System Administrator subsequently can take an action to block suspicious traffic creating or modifying appropriate rule.

“Unlike traditional hardware firewalls, 5nine v-Firewall for Hyper-V allows us to programmatically manage network security on a per VM basis. Ultimately, this will decrease management costs and improve the security and compliance of our MaxV Cloud Servers” – said Ryan Jones, Virtualization Product Manager, Maximum ASP.

More and more companies, including those of highly regulated financial, insurance and healthcare industries, are looking to utilize Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization technology to reduce costs and optimize IT resources. Security and compliance are increasing concerns for broad range of virtualization deployments. 5nine Virtual Firewall provides strong protection for the virtual infrastructure.

“5nine v-Firewall and v-Firewall Free Edition has already drawn significant attention of many organizations of different size, including SMB, hosting companies and enterprises utilizing Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008 / R2 and the new version 2.0 builds on that success. said Dr. Konstantin Malkov, R&D Director of 5nine Software. We worked closely with Microsoft Product Management and a few major Microsoft. Hosting Partners to complete version 2.0 of 5nine Virtual Firewall. It allowed us to refine requirements for secure Hyper-V virtual machines provisioning and deployment, which were implemented in version 2.0 of 5nine Virtual Firewall and 5nine Security Heartbeat Service for Hyper-V.
