Webhosting.net chooses Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments as exclusive security solution
January 31, 2013 – Bucharest, Romania and Miami, Florida – Bitdefender Enterprise, a provider of innovative security solutions, today announced that Webhosting.net, a global managed service provider (MSP), has chosen Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) as the company’s standard security protection for its virtualization environments, including its newest offering, Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).
Webhosting.net, providing managed services through VMware solutions
From entry level organizations to enterprise level, Webhosting.net provides a number of IT services ranging from Microsoft Hosted Exchange, to virtual and cloud hosting, to business continuity through a carrier-class collocation facility. In addition, Webhosting.net is a VMware customer and extends all the tools within the VMware product set to their fullest benefit.
“One of our key customer offerings is Desktop as a Service (DaaS), a WebHosting.net hosted VDI service. Our VDI service enables customers to secure, accelerate, and cost-contain their IT initiatives, and our Service Level Agreements guarantee high performance and efficiency for our customers,” said Jose Uribe, Chief Operating Officer, Webhosting.net. “Since Bitdefender is a VMware Technology Alliance Partner, integrating with vShield and vCenter, it allows us to both increase our competitive advantage and differentiate our hosted VDI service by bundling it with best-in-class security of the hosted VDI environment.”
Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) passes performance test
After testing Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) against a competitive virtualization security product, Mr. Uribe decided that Bitdefender SVE was the logical choice. Furthermore, prior to making the decision and during the 30-day proof-of-concept, Mr. Uribe tested Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) in some of his customers’ environments. When he inquired, the customers reported they noticed an improvement in performance, and that SVE was so non-intrusive they didn’t even know it was working behind the scenes.
Mr. Uribe continued, “During the proof-of-concept stage, our customers noticed an improvement in performance, which helped us see that Bitdefender was the clear choice. Our customers were very happy and validated that implementing an AV solution built for virtualization was the key to ensuring top performance and reliability.”
Purpose-built security for the MSP market
Bitdefender solutions are highly scalable and are designed from the ground up to support today’s physical, virtual and mobile complex environments. Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments provides streamlined protection for endpoints running on any type of virtualization technology, such as VMware vSphere, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V, allowing organizations to obtain higher consolidation ratios and to reduce costs associated with additional hardware.
