Managed security policies based on windows domain structure
Integration into Active Directory leverages the organizations existing Windows domain structure and group policies. Security policies can be applied directly by selecting users or user groups from the Directory as an alternative to managing workstation groups within the Management Server. Bitdefender's Management Server also detects unmanaged workstations, making them easy to identify for automated remote deployment, or to exclude them from compliance with your defined security policy.
Bitdefender Centralized Management manages both Windows and UNIX-based gateways, endpoints and critical servers
Integrated network resource management capability
The Bitdefender Management Server utilizes Endpoint and Server Auditing and Management scripts compliant with Microsofts WMI Scripting Language. With over thirty predefined templates, administrators can automate mass remote management to remotely kill applications and processes, install and uninstall software, restart or shutdown workstations, enable/disable autoruns, or block USB removable media access. Alternatively, the audit data collection of all endpoint and servers within the network including hardware specifications and installed software applications - can identify non-compliant systems that exceed your companys defined security standards.
Automatic or scheduled update distribution
Bitdefender Management Server enables intelligent distribution of new virus definitions and restricted content database updates from a central location. Updates can either be applied automatically once an hour when they become available, or scheduled to be applied during off-peak times to minimise performance degradation and impact to the network.
Centralized policy, reporting and alert synchronization is controlled throughout the organization via the Master Management Server. It ensures centralized and intelligent distribution of policy updates within the local network or remotely managed networks running a Slave Management Server.
Bitdefender's architecture allows centralized management of the local and remote deployments
