Agentless antivirus detects viruses and malware and improves security of the Hyper-V virtualized environment without antivirus storms and performance bottlenecks. It offers fast and effective antimalware scans of virtual machines, using unique agentless technology, and hosts.

5nine Manager for Hyper-V is the first and only solution to offer agentless antimalware and antivirus protection for Microsoft Hyper-V. By leveraging random scans based on the virtual environment workload and trend analysis, antivirus/anti-malware avoids resource consumption problems and performance degradation when multiple AV scans are running.

  • Agentless: no performance degradation
  • Fast, incremental scans
  • Orchestrated scans
  • Staggered scanning
  • Centralized management

Unique Features

Many companies provide antivirus and antimalware protection, but not like we do. Here’s what makes us special:

  • The only agentless protection built for Microsoft Hyper-V, 5nine Manager installs antivirus only once per host rather than once per virtual machine. Consumes almost no VM resources.
  • Real-time protection via optional Active Protection agent.
  • The industry’s fastest initial full and subsequent incremental scans of Virtual machines.
  • Special incremental scan technology tracks file changes and scans only changed files, resulting in scans that are up to 50X faster than traditional full system scans.
