Protect Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools with uninstall password

Overview

In some situations users with administrative privileges can uninstall Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools (BEST), leaving the system unprotected.

You can help prevent such unauthorized actions by setting up an uninstall password from the GravityZone Control Center.

Set up a password

You can set up an uninstall password for:

  • New deployments

    To protect future endpoints set up the uninstall password before the deployment, from the installation package.

  • Existing installations

    You can protect the existing endpoints in your network through policy. Edit the policy applied on the endpoints to set up the uninstall password.

    To use multiple passwords for groups of endpoints sharing the same policy across your environment, use the uninstall password setting of the installation package.

New Deployments

To set the uninstall password for the installation package:

  1. Log in to GravityZone Control Center.
  2. Go to the Network page and click on the Packages section.
  3. Click the package that you want to install or create a new one
  4. Under Settings, select the Set uninstall password check box.
  5. Enter a password considering the complexity requirements.
  6. Click Save

Use this package to install BEST on endpoints. The password will prevent users from uninstalling the agent afterwards.

Existing Installation

To configure the uninstall password from the policy:

  1. Log in to GravityZone Control Center.
  2. Go to the Policies page.
  3. Choose the policy that you applied on your systems.
    If the applied policy is the Default one, you must create and assign a new policy.
  4. Go to the General > Settings page.
  5. Under Uninstall Password Configuration select the Set uninstall password check box.
  6. Enter a password considering the complexity requirements.
  7. Click Save.

Ensure that you apply the policy to your target endpoints.
