Defeat Threats. Drive Performance. Deliver Control.

Bitdefender GravityZone is the first security management solution to properly address the scalability and performance challenges that enterprises are facing today. Built from the ground up for heterogeneous environments, and using a unique design approach, GravityZone unifies control for virtualized, physical, and mobile endpoints. Organizations have the flexibility to deploy any or all of the three security services within GravityZone: Security for Virtualized Environments, Security for Endpoints, and Security for Mobile Devices.

Features and Benefits. Unified security architected for auto scaling and high availability.

  • Minimizing performance issues, efforts, and hardware costs – Unlike traditional solutions which require intense efforts to protect larger number of endpoints, GravityZone can be scaled with ease thanks to its virtual container architecture.
  • Turnkey deployment – Delivered in a virtual container, GravityZone can be imported to run on any virtualization platform. This accelerates the deployment process by simply loading the virtual appliance into any hypervisor.
  • Improved workflows and reduced security management efforts – By consolidating security control for physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints through the unified GravityZone Control Center, administrative activities are streamlined and point solutions eliminated.
  • Simplified management with VMware, Active Directory and Citrix integration – Deploying and managing protection for physical, virtual or mobile endpoints is simplified by integrating with the most important virtualization and directory services.
  • Industry-acclaimed protection technologies and proven security services – GravityZone combines the highly effective and optimized protection for virtualized environments with endpoint security technologies that consistently earn Bitdefender awards in the most important independent tests.

For most organizations embracing virtualization technologies, information security has been a tradeoff between performance and the level of protection. Often counter-productive in virtualized environments, traditional AV software is too resource-heavy and difficult to manage when running on virtual machines. This leads to higher operational costs and decreased performance.

Vendor-agnostic security for any virtualized environment

Bitdefender addresses the needs of midsize companies with Security for Virtualized Environments. When installed in VMware environments, the solution takes advantage of vShield Endpoint technologies to offload main antimalware load associated with scanning and updates processes. This agentless security model ensures efficient resource consumption and improved performance, allowing companies to gain significant cost savings without compromising the protection of their data. SVE is however not dependent on the virtualization technology and can adapt to dynamic requirements of any type of virtualized or cloud infrastructure. Combining self-learning cache mechanisms with lightweight antivirus footprint, the solution delivers highly optimized protection across multiple virtualization platforms and guest operating systems.

Realize the Full Potential of Virtualization

Based on leading-edge technologies architected specifically for virtualized environments, SVE provides highly scalable and lightweight protection on each virtual machine, improving performance and saving crucial resources throughout your entire environment.

  • Multi-Platform Coverage: GravityZone – SVE provides optimized protection on all the known hypervisors - VMware vShield VMware ESXi, Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V, Red Hat KVM, Oracle VM and more
  • Best Performance In VDI Environments: Based on competitive performance testing run with Login Virtual Session Indexer, (Login VSI), GravityZone – SVE has the lowest impact on applications running in virtualized environments, when compared to other virtualization security solutions
  • Cost Reductions Through Higher Server Consolidation: GravityZone – SVE improves server consolidation by up to 30% when compared to traditional antimalware, reducing the needed hardware equipment and the energy consumption in the organization
  • Minimized Administrative Overhead: The solution combines simplified deployment and administration with powerful antimalware engines and security policies, to help streamline the IT operations while improving compliance

Bitdefender provides the highly scalable Endpoint Security that businesses require to protect against malware and web threats. Ideal for companies with many geographically dispersed offices, the solution provides a highly effective approach to centralizing IT security for any number of remote locations thus eliminating the need for on-premise management servers to be located within each of the small offices.

The flexibility given by virtual container deployments allows Security for Endpoints to fit the needs of businesses from Small and Medium up to Large Enterprises and Service Providers (xSP), all can benefit from the modular and scalable GravityZone architecture.

Key benefits

  • Enhanced security with industry-awarded antimalware technologies
    With Bitdefender technology consistently winning major independent security tests, Security for Endpoints provides a level of security beyond reach with almost all other systems. Accolades from AV-Test, AV-Comparatives, or Virus Bulletin certify the performance of Bitdefender technologies, giving administrators the peace of mind of having the best available solution.
  • Simplified security management
    Designed specifically to secure the complex IT environments of modern businesses, the solution simplifies security operations with granular security policies and real-time reports. Consolidating control for physical, virtualized, and mobile endpoints in the unified GravityZone interface further streamlines security management workflows, reducing the time required to manage and maintain security operations
  • Massively scalable architecture, high availability and performance
    Delivered within a virtual appliance with built-in redundancy, Security for Endpoints scales with ease to protect the largest enterprise environments. This minimizes risks and performance issues when managing large environments, and drastically reduces the manual effort and hardware needed to maintain an enterprise-wide security system.
  • Simple rollout
    Replacing any widely used system is often seen as a daunting task, deterring companies from rolling out improved alternatives. Security for Endpoints renders these concerns obsolete by providing a turnkey virtual container deployment, automatically uninstalling legacy endpoint clients, and integrating with Microsoft Active Directory to accelerate rollout.
  • Comprehensive feature set
    GravityZone Security for Endpoints provides more than just antimalware protection. It includes a fully featured two-way firewall with intrusion detection, antiphishing, web filtering and user and web control. This comprehensive functionality is essential in blocking increasingly diverse threats from infecting end-user systems and server endpoints.

For growing businesses, the implementation and management of security software is often costly and resource-intensive, especially when faced with limited IT staff and security expertise. As threats diversify and cyber-attacks become more focused, smaller companies find it more challenging to efficiently protect their business assets and stay ahead of emerging security threats while keeping control of their budget.

Extend your security policies to mobile devices

Bitdefender Security for Mobile Devices introduces a holistic mobile security approach that helps organizations maintain compliance while minimizing IT intervention and effort. Tightly integrated into GravityZone Control Center, it is not “yet another solution” that adds to the workload of administrators. From the same management platform used for controlling security across virtualized and physical endpoints, you can start enforcing security policies to mobile devices in no time, without any additional infrastructure required

The mobile security services inherit all the benefits of the unique architecture of Bitdefender GravityZone. It’s providing administrators with the tools to extend security policies with ease to any number of iOS and Android devices, protecting them against unauthorized usage, risk-ware, and loss of confidential data.

Key Benefits

  • Unified security to minimize the administrative overhead
    Bitdefender’s solution has been designed to support controlled adoption of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) concept by enforcing security policies consistently on all users’ devices. As a result, the mobile devices are controlled, and sensitive business information residing on them is protected. Administrative burden is reduced with the always up-to-date status of compliant and non-compliant devices.
  • Number-one-ranked antimalware technologyOn-demand antimalware scanning is included for Android devices to ensure they are free of malicious code. Scanning is triggered automatically when a removable storage device has been inserted or each time a new application is being installed. The scanning detects Android malware and prevents mobile users from distributing infected files to other users inside or outside the organization.
  • The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenonOne of the most common issues Enterprises face today is the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon. When employees buy their own mobile devices and bring them to the office, they may prefer to also get them “rooted” or “jailbroken” for more flexibility to install software that has not been approved or made available on official app stores. However, employees might not be aware that their action can endanger their own devices along with business confidential data. By removing built-in restrictions, employees expose their smart devices to malicious code that can secretly forward corporate emails or contact lists to third parties.
    As a result, many organizations have decided to prevent rooted or jailbroken devices from accessing company networks and data. Bitdefender supports BYOD initiatives with centralized security policy management of iPhones, iPads and Android devices with pre-defined actions to be applied for non-compliant devices, such as denying access to corporate services, permanently locking the device or even wiping the device in case it has been rooted after being stolen.

The new Bitdefender Small Office Security combines leading protection and performance, with simple and effective remote deployment and a cloud-based management console.

The solution protects PC and Mac desktops and servers, and prevents business disruptions and data loss. It is designed for companies with up to 250 seats, and includes an on-premise version which is available for customers that prefer to host the management components in-house.
