Unified security to minimize administrative overhead - Bitdefender’s solution is 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, mobile devices are controlled, and sensitive business information on them is protected. The administrative burden is reduced with the always-up-to-date status of compliant and non-compliant devices.
#1-ranked antimalware technology - On-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 is inserted or each time a new application is installed. 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) phenomenon - Bitdefender supports BYOD initiatives with centralized security policy management of iPhones, iPads and Android devices with pre-defined actions 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 stolen and rooted.
Enforces simple but effective screen lock and authentication - Mobile device users may find screen lock with authentication disturbing their usage of the mobile phone or tablet, but nobody would question the need for a password on their laptop. Bitdefender makes it simple to apply consistent security policies on all user devices and prevent unwanted access to unattended phones or tablets. Since security cannot be a choice of the end user, centrally managed security policies allow easy enforcement of security features on mobile devices, including screen lock after a number of minutes or complex passwords with a maximum number of failed attempts.
Prevents usage of lost or stolen devices - Bitdefender enhances the existing Apple iOS and Android operating systems with the security features that are most needed and used by enterprises. One of these key features is centralized management of lost or stolen devices to prevent private information from getting into the wrong hands. Sensitive information on mobile devices varies from email communications to patient information and personal photos. Bitdefender prevents usage of lost or stolen mobile devices by remotely locking and locating them to potentially recover both the data and the device itself. If the device cannot be recovered, the information can be simply wiped to minimize the risk of data leakage.
Adapts to security needs of both professional and personal life - Bitdefender takes into account security requirements of mobile devices for both professional and personal life. Equally applicable for both company-owned mobile devices and Bring-Your-Own-Devices (BYOD), it allows users to quickly switch profiles covering connectivity and encryption (VPN) settings based on the services the user needs. Remote administration of the profiles also allows more security policies to be applied, even down to pre-defined web access hours on Android devices.
Bitdefender GravityZone is the new Bitdefender enterprise security solution for Medium to Very Large Organizations. It's redesigned from the ground up with a fresh, but proven private cloud computing architecture that takes full advantage of virtualized infrastructures. GravityZone leverages Bitdefender's acclaimed antimalware technologies and provides a centralized security management platform for physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints.
GravityZone is a business-agile solution that implements a holistic approach. Not just antivirus, but an enterprise-grade solution that helps organizations to attain their virtualization projects objectives and secure data, while preserving the systems' performance and users' productivity.
With built in redundancy and load balancing mechanism, it's capable to scale-out on-demand to protect from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of endpoints, and provides administrators with a single pane of glass into organization's security postures, global threats and dashboards for various roles within the organization.
From platform architecture to security services, GravityZone emerges as a reinvented enterprise security solution built for the new IT landscape. The solution combines highly optimized virtualization aware security with leading detection technologies and a fresh, but proven, architecture.
Complex enterprise environments require tailored, integrated security solutions that support heterogeneous environments with a broad range of systems and usage scenarios. GravityZone has been designed to deliver optimized security for the new threats and risks of data exposures introduced by:
All this has changed the IT landscape, the way information is delivered and consumed, how applications and services are provisioned.
GravityZone itself is implemented as a private cloud solution that runs on virtualized layers and it's packed to enable organizations to secure their IT assets, while helps to reduce administration burden, lower TCO and improve the return-on-investments. The solution removes the scalability limitation of legacy solutions based on client-server architecture and relational databases.
The improvement continues with security services, too. GravityZone extends and integrates security services to virtualized environments and mobile devices. So, as users are expecting the same experience when consuming information on a PC, Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone, the information security will be preserved, too, no matter if is accessed locally or remotely, from a workstation or a mobile device, if the company uses traditional or virtualized infrastructures.
GravityZone is unified by design and aims to be a solution that covers all security requirements. In current stage it unifies the main security services and provides a single point of management for physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints security. Future development will integrate new security services into GravityZone, like security for email and collaboration, and also will add services enhancements and support for other platforms.
Unlike other solutions that bolt-on modules to an aging architecture, importing different 3rd party technologies and trying to put them together, Bitdefender GravityZone has been architected from the ground up as a unified security management platform across physical, virtualized and mobile environments. It features a modular design that allows flexible and tailored security services, and role based administration.
The solution comprises of the following integrated components:
GravityZone is 100% modularized. This means that you can choose what services you want to license, with the needed number of units per each one.
Even if GravityZone is delivered as virtual appliance, its deployment is not constrained by SVE service activation. However, if you already run or plan to deploy virtualization projects, we recommend you to implement Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE).
With GravityZone you will benefit of effective security and improved administration efficiency from two directions. On one side reduced administration burden due to centralized management and architecture benefits with simple turn-key deployment of GravityZone virtual appliance, built in redundancy and scalability mechanism, and on the other side is the optimized virtualization security services of SVE that will help you attain your business objectives of the virtualization projects and realize the full potential of your investments.
For example, there is a need to provide security for VMs running on VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V at the same time.
Yes, with Security for Virtualized Environments service of GravityZone you can manage all types of virtualization scenarios from a single point of management. GravityZone Control Center is integrated with VMware vCenter and Citrix XenCenter, and also supports many other virtualization platforms, like Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM, RedHat Enterprise Virtualization, or Oracle Virtualization.
GravityZone is a modular solution supporting you to license only what you need, when you need. You can license each security service for the necessary number of units.
Volume discounts are applicable for each security service, starting from as low as 15 units.
