5nine Software released version 3.7 of 5nine Security for Hyper-V Standard edition. This software product provides agentless anti-virus and anti-malware protection for Windows Server as well as for virtual machines running on Microsoft Hyper-V.

5nine Security Standard has an agentless anti-virus specially designed for Microsoft Hyper-V. Incremental scans, a proprietary technology, allows reduction in scan time by 99% compared to the full system scan.


New in version 3.7 is Antivirus Active Protection. This feature scans disk, files and memory of Hyper-V VMs in real-time. For this to work an agent, called the VM Active Protection Agent must be installed though. Customers can choose between VIPRE or Sophos as their anti-malware engines.
