Bitdefender Security for Mobile helps organizations maintain compliance while minimizing IT intervention and effort. Security for Mobile allows you to enforce bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies for mobile devices with no additional infrastructure. Bitdefender GravityZone’s control center allows you to control all endpoints: physical, virtualized, and mobile from one console.
Easy mobile security management through the web-based console you already use to manage virtualized and physical endpoints.
Unified security protects your iOS and Android from a single point of control.
Real-time and on-demand anti-malware scanning for Android devices ensures they are free of malicious code.
Designed to support controlled adoption of BYOD by enforcing security policies consistently across all devices, Bitdefender helps ensure mobile devices and the sensitive business information they hold are protected. The administrative burden on IT is reduced by keeping the status of compliant and non-compliant devices always up to date.
On-demand antimalware scanning ensures Android devices are free of malicious code. Scanning is triggered automatically when a removable storage device is inserted or each time a new application is installed. Bitdefender detects Android malware and prevents mobile users from distributing infected files to other users inside or outside your organization.
Bitdefender supports BYOD initiatives with centralized security policy management of iPhones, iPads and Android devices with pre-defined actions for non-compliant devices, such as denying access to corporate services, permanently locking the device, or even wiping the device in case it has been stolen or lost.
Bitdefender provides easy-to-apply, consistent security policies such as screen lock and authentication options on user mobile devices to prevent unwanted access to unattended phones or tablets.
Bitdefender enhances the existing Apple iOS and Android operating systems with security features most critical for enterprises. For example, Bitdefender offers centralized management of lost or stolen devices to prevent private information from getting into the wrong hands.
Bitdefender takes into account the security requirements of mobile devices for both the professional and personal life of users. Applicable for both company-owned mobile devices and BYOD, users can quickly switch profiles for connectivity and encryption (VPN) settings based on the services the user needs.
Bitdefender is recognized as a cybersecurity leader by independent testing organizations, industry analyst firms and media outlets.

Mobile devices can bring a lot of benefits to a business, but they can also create several headaches for security teams. Personal phones and tablets need to be treated as primary work devices given that they often have access to sensitive and confidential data on the company network. These devices can also be used as a steppingstone for greater access to the organization’s network.
Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) refers to the practice of employees using personal devices for work purposes. Employees of an organization use their own computers, smartphones, or other devices to connect to their organizational networks and access work-related systems and potentially sensitive or confidential data.
BYOD places additional responsibilities on IT departments, which must maintain the devices and ensure that the practice does not introduce unnecessary vulnerabilities to the company’s infrastructure. BYOD security, like enterprise security, requires a multi-layered approach to address the risk while minimizing intrusions.
GravityZone Security for Mobile is not another tool that overloads the administrator's to-do list. Fully integrated into the GravityZone Control Center, it allows IT personnel to enforce security policies for mobile devices without additional infrastructure, from the same management platform used to control security across virtualized and physical endpoints.
