The Anti-Ransomware Technologies Inside GravityZone Business Security

GravityZone Business Security is based on an adaptive-layered architecture that includes endpoint controls, prevention, detection, remediation, and visibility technologies. Bitdefender offers users and security admins tools at multiple levels to keep ransomware at bay. GravityZone’s Business Security ransomware defenses consist of:


Preemptive Protection

Bitdefender creates automatic, up-to-date tamperproof backup copies of user files, without using shadow copies
that can be easily deleted by ransomware. Ransomware can’t access the protected backup files and the user is unaware of their presence.

Blocking & Prevention

Several adaptive defenses come to play against ransomware: Machine Learning Anti-Malware accurately detects new patterns in pre-execution and at runtime, Advanced Anti-Exploit quickly identifies and terminates malicious processes automatically, and Network Attack Defense blocks ransomware exploits that arrive via network ingress points. 

Real-Time Monitoring

GravityZone Advanced Threat Control module monitors running processes in real-time — including registry key modifications, file reads/writes, encryption action and more — to identify suspicious or malicious processes for automatic or manual termination by security teams. 

Risk Mitigation

GravityZone’s multiple risk mitigation technologies ensure that system and application vulnerabilities and misconfigurations don’t leave organizations susceptible to ransomware attacks. The unique
Human Risk Analytics module blocks ransomware attacks that exploit risky user actions and behaviors.

Industry Recognition

Bitdefender is recognized as a cybersecurity leader by independent testing organizations, industry analyst firms and media outlets.
