GRAVITYZONE SECURITY FOR VIRTUALIZED ENVIRONMENTS

Award-winning protection for datacenter and cloud workloads

Protect your virtualized environment

Security for next-generation infrastructure

Digital transformation, cloud-based business models and time-to-market pressures are causing a tectonic shift in the enterprise. To keep up, IT is changing its role from exercising control to providing services that facilitate business initiatives. The datacenter, a pillar of IT modernization, is evolving to give IT the powerful yet flexible compute, storage and network resources it needs to support business.

This next-generation datacenter requires a new approach to security. Accordingly, Bitdefender GravityZone was engineered to safeguard software-defined, hyperconverged and cloud infrastructure, while promoting its agility, efficiency and performance.

Features and benefits

AWARD-WINNING NEXT-GENERATION PROTECTION

Award-Winning Next-Generation Protection

Unrivaled security efficacy

GravityZone is consistently rated top in independent tests for efficacy against advanced threats and low false positives.

Layered next-generation defenses

GravityZone uses application control, patch management, tunable machine learning, network sandbox, and other technologies to reduce the attack surface and detect, investigate and remediate threats, known and unknown.

Integrated Patch Management

Enhanced with Patch Management, GravityZone boosts infrastructure resilience, providing automatic discovery and characterization of vulnerabilities and the widest range of patches for operating systems, third-party applications and golden images.

SEAMLESS FIT WITH YOUR VIRTUAL AND CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE

Seamless Fit With Your Virtual And Cloud Infrastructure

Universal compatibility

GravityZone uniquely supports all datacenter environments, whether they are built on VMware® ESXi, Microsoft® Hyper-V, Citrix® XenServer, Nutanix AHV, KVM, RedHat® Enterprise Virtualization, or any other virtualization solution. Plus, it is compatible with multiple cloud IaaS platforms, such as AWS® and Azure®. Importantly, GravityZone can protect multiple hypervisors, clouds and guest OSs from the same deployment, making it the optimal cloud-workload security solution for heterogeneous hybrid environments.

AGILE AND EFFICIENT SECURITY OPERATIONS

Agile and Efficient Security Operations

Simple centralized manageability

A single-agent, single-console solution, GravityZone unifies security management, enabling ubiquitous visibility and consistent policy enforcement across the hybrid cloud.

Agility through automation

GravityZone expedites deployment and automates security workflows at scale via integration with infrastructure-management tools such as AWS EC2, Citrix® XenServer, Nutanix® Prism, and VMware® vCenter Server.

MAXIMUM INFRASTRUCTURE UTILIZATION AND ROI

Maximum Infrastructure Utilization and ROI

Lean and efficient architecture

Built from the ground-up for virtualized and cloud environments, GravityZone uses a single set of featherweight in-guest security tools instead of multiple heavy legacy agents. Resource-intensive tasks are offloaded to a dedicated Security Virtual Appliance (SVA) that performs centralized threat analysis and maintains detection algorithms for multiple VMs, deduplicating security efforts. Scan offloading, combined with patented caching algorithms and heuristics, minimizes the security “tax” on infrastructure resources.

35% higher virtualization density

GravityZone offloads resource-intensive tasks to a dedicated security server, freeing CPU, memory, I/O, and network capacity to allow more virtual machines on each host.

TOP INFRASTRUCTURE PERFORMANCE AND END-USER EXPERIENCE

Top Infrastructure Performance and End-User Experience

Faster bootup, faster logins, faster application response

GravityZone minimizes its footprint inside the VM with a unified featherweight agent and patented antimalware heuristics and caching algorithms that make the antimalware effort less resource-intensive. Consequently, applications have more CPU, memory, and IOPS resources to run, which drastically reduces latency and improves the end-user experience.

CARRIER-GRADE SCALABILITY AND RESILIENCE

Carrier-Grade Scalability and Resilience

Unlimited linear scalability

GravityZone’s modular web-scale architecture provides the scalability to secure carrier-grade deployments. The platform can expand on demand in a linear and efficient fashion by adding Security Virtual Appliances (SVA) or multiplying Control Center server roles, if required.

High availability and resilience

The design of the GravityZone platform (based on multiple instances of database, communication, and web servers with built-in redundancy) ensures its intrinsic resilience. Further, automatic policy-based load distribution across SVAs eliminates single points of failure at the system level, ensuring uninterrupted security and high availability (configured and controlled from a single console).

HIGHER ROI ON SECURITY INVESTMENT

Higher ROI on Security Investment

No hidden costs

GravityZone includes everything you need to deploy and run the security solution, without requiring the purchase of additional database licenses, for example.

CPU-based licensing option

To help reduce security costs in high-density environments such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), GravityZone offers CPU-based licensing that delivers significant savings compared to the per-VM-based model.

Bitdefender-hosted cloud console

To save you financial and technical resources on maintaining the GravityZone Control Center, Bitdefender provides hosting and upgrades to the cloud console at no extra charge.
