Security for AWS includes the following components:

  • Web Console (GravityZone Control Center)

  • Security Server (scan server)

  • Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools (security agent)


Web Console (GravityZone Control Center)

Bitdefender GravityZone security solutions are managed from a single point of management, on the Control Center web console. This provides easier management and access to overall security posture, global security threats, and control over all security modules protecting your Amazon instances.

Control Center integrates with your EC2 resource inventory to make it simple to apply protection to unmanaged Amazon instances.

Security Server (scan server)

Security Server is a dedicated virtual machine that de-duplicates and centralizes most of the antimalware functionality of antimalware agents, acting as a scan server.

Security Server machines are hosted by Bitdefender in several Amazon regions, and the EC2 instances will automatically connect to the closest Security Server based on the AWS region they are hosted in.

Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools (security agent)

To protect your Amazon instances with Security for AWS, you must install the GravityZone security agent on each of them.

GravityZone ensures Amazon instances protection with Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools, an intelligent environment-aware security agent which adapts to the virtual machine's resources.
