What makes Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security the best?

Key Features

Integration with Windows Security Center

Microsoft and Bitdefender are collaborating to integrate Bitdefender’s GravityZone Cloud with Microsoft’s Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection and enable Microsoft customers to detect, view, investigate, and respond to advanced cyber-attacks and data breaches on macOS and Linux-based endpoints within the WDATP Management Console..

Customers will be able to view comprehensive threat intelligence information on malware and suspicious file detections that includes the following :

      • Detected File Information (File path, File hash)
      • Detected Threat Information (Type of threat, malware name, Threat action, logged in user)
      • Machine Information (OS information, IP information)

Machine Learning

Machine learning techniques use well-trained machine models and algorithms to predict and block advanced attacks. Bitdefender’s machine learning models use 40,000 static and dynamic features and are continuously trained on billions of clean and malicious file samples gathered from over 500 million endpoints globally. This dramatically improves the effectiveness of malware detection and minimizes false positives.

Response and containment

GravityZone offers the best clean-up technology on the market. It automatically blocks/contains threats and kills malicious processes.

HyperDetect 2

This new defense layer in the pre-execution phase features local machine learning models and advanced heuristics trained to spot hacking tools, exploits and malware obfuscation techniques to block sophisticated threats before execution.
HyperDetect lets security administrators adjust defense to best counter the specific risks the organization likely faces. With the “report only” option, security administrators can stage and monitor their new defense policy before rolling it out, eliminating business interruption. In a combination of high visibility and aggressive blocking unique to Bitdefender, users can set HyperDetect to block at normal or permissive level while continuing to report on aggressive level automatically, exposing early indicators of compromise.

Relay Function 3

For distributed environments, administrators can leverage the Relay Role and designate computers to serve as communication proxy and update servers. Relay agents automatically discover unprotected computers on the network, and disseminate installation packages and updates to optimize network traffic.

GravityZone Cloud Console

GravityZone Control Center is an integrated, centralized management console for GravityZone solutions including endpoint security and data center security. GravityZone Control Center is hosted by Bitdefender on a highly redundant cloud platform.

Security Server

The Security Server is a purpose-built virtual appliance providing centralized scanning capabilities. Bitdefender Smart Scanning technology lets virtual and physical endpoints offload security tasks to the Security Server, freeing up computing resources.

GravityZone Full Disk Encryption

GravityZone FDE protects data for on the entire endpoint hard drive by leveraging the encryption mechanisms provided by Windows (BitLocker) and Mac (FileVault). It takes advantage of the native device encryption to ensure full compatibility and maximized performance. GravityZone FDE is integrated into the GravityZone Console and Agent, with no additional agent to deploy or key management server to install. The use of existing endpoint security infrastructure to manage Full Disk Encryption enables fully centralized deployment with minimal administrative effort.
