Keeping a business up and running while managing costs is a primary goal for small and medium-sized businesses. Moving to a virtual environment can reduce costs and improve business agility by eliminating the hardware and infrastructure of a physical server environment.
However, virtualization adds layers of technology that can be complex and difficult for businesses to manage—while still protecting themselves from new threats, risk and exposure unique to virtualized environments. Standard anti-malware can be used on each agent, but will consume system resources, degrade performance and reduce the returns from a the virtualization investment.
With 5nine, small and medium-sized businesses can have an easy-to-use, cost-effective way to protect their virtual environment from threats without degrading performance or burdening resources. 5nine is the first agentless, antivirus/antimalware solution—offering robust security that is light on system resources.
