5nine Expands Platform with Hybrid Cloud Management and Security for Microsoft AzureJuly 16, 2018
5nine, a provider of security and management solutions for the Microsoft Cloud, today announced it is expanding the 5nine solution suite to support the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform, thereby providing full management and security capabilities across the entire Microsoft Cloud environment – private, public and hybrid. 5nine Cloud Manager, formerly 5nine Manager Datacenter, enables users to manage, monitor and backup/recover their existing cloud infrastructure while easing the transition to hybrid environments.
5nine greatly simplifies businesses’ ability to manage and secure their cloud infrastructure. 5nine Cloud Manager is uniquely positioned to help businesses achieve maximum ROI from their cloud investments by managing and securing those resources regardless of their rapidly-changing environment.
With Azure revenue soaring 93%, businesses of all sizes are increasingly adopting it in their strategy to expand beyond private data center infrastructure. But many system administrators are still adapting to the demands of the public cloud environment, such as the increasing organizational overhead burden amid lack of resources, often distracting from the focus on important business goals.
Instead, 5nine’s solution offers a familiar private cloud management interface to Microsoft customers; cloud and system administrators no longer need to tackle the exhaustive workloads and complexity that come from managing disparate platforms. 5nine’s agentless solution ensures maximum resource utilization, while also empowering users to manage their hybrid cloud infrastructure from one easy-to-use, single console.
"The right fit for your business may require a well-balanced blend of private and public cloud environments. Until now, each required its own unique tools for configuration, maintenance, monitoring and security-compounding complexity and overhead. Instead, the 5nine platform empowers you to approach your hybrid cloud as a single enterprise that is scalable, extensible and agile." – William Fellows, 451 Research
5nine’s comprehensive Azure solution delivers a breadth of capabilities that enterprise, mid-market and small-to-mid-size businesses need to seamlessly manage their infrastructure:
- Azure Lifecycle Operations – allowing businesses to standardize hybrid cloud lifecycle operations across the organization for better efficiency and more security.
- Azure Resource Monitoring – expanding businesses’ visibility and providing extensive monitoring of their infrastructure.
- Azure Backup and Recovery – allowing businesses to secure their infrastructure with virtual firewall and agentless antivirus capabilities, while stepping away from the existing notion that backup and recovery are typically standalone products.
- Azure Security – provides a seamless and unified interface with multi-layered protection at every point of attack without impacting performance to the Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure.
"Our customers are demanding a comfortable, easy-to-use, unified solution that will help their transition to the public cloud or strengthen their existing operations within it – and that’s what we are delivering today," said Vince Arneja, Chief Product Officer at 5nine. "These new capabilities reinforce our commitment to and strength in the Microsoft Cloud, while also reaffirming our promise of helping customers enable their innovation goals in the public cloud on their terms."
