Cloud Security for Endpoints Update (July 2013)
Cloud Security for Endpoints by Bitdefender protects systems using security technology that has been rated number one time and time again. It does not require on-site server hardware and maintenance as it is managed by Cloud Security Console, a powerful and intuitive interface to a solution that can scale to defend any number of systems, no matter where they are located.
This new upgrade delivers a number of major improvements over the previous version, including a new client product, Endpoint Security by Bitdefender.
Note: The upgrade process will automatically reboot the target machines.

Web installer kits downloaded before the update was released will not work anymore, therefore we recommend downloading either the new web installer kits or the full kits from the Cloud Security Console in order to install the new Endpoint Security client and benefit from the latest security improvements.
