5nine & Hostway Partner to Offer the Industry’s Leading Security as a Service Solution

Security as a Service is now available to the Customers of Hostway to Protect their Clouds with 5nine Cloud Security Azure Pack Extension

CHICAGO, IL (Nov. 03, 2015) – 5nine Software, the leading global Hyper-V virtualization security and management provider, and Hostway Services, Inc., an innovative leader in Web and App Hosting, Cloud, Managed, and Hybrid Hosting services, have joined forces to ensure tenants are now able to easily manage their own Windows and Linux security policies through the Azure Pack self-service portal. 5nine Cloud Security, the only Security as a Service (SECaaS) solution for Windows Azure Pack, now allows Hostway to secure multi-tenant environments and virtual machines (VMs), while giving users the ability to easily configure firewalls, intrusion detection, and more.

“5nine Software is happy to contribute to the success of Hostway Services by enabling them to expand their cloud portfolio and reach new customers by meeting more compliance and regulation requirements,” said Symon Perriman, VP of Business Development at 5nine Software. “By providing Security as a Service to their users, Hostway has demonstrated its commitment to innovation by taking advantage of the latest cloud infrastructure security technologies.”

By introducing 5nine Cloud Security into their environment, Hostway also gets the industry’s leading integrated antivirus, firewall, intrusion detection and network traffic control to protect their own Hyper-V infrastructure. Not only will Hostway have greater security for its own datacenter and for its users, but Hostway will also generate new revenue channels by offering Security as a Service (SECaaS) while differentiating itself from other cloud hosting providers.

“Through our experience helping organizations of all sizes move to the cloud, we understand the importance of delivering a highly secure solution,” said Tony Savoy, Hostway’s General Manager and Vice President, Managed and Cloud Services. “Our partnership with 5nine allows us to enhance the security and data protection capabilities associated with our Microsoft Windows Azure-based Private Cloud, while also reinforcing our position as the leading Microsoft Cloud hosting specialist.”
