Overview

This section is intended to guide Datto RMM administrators to integrate BitdefenderGravityZone with Datto RMM. You will learn how to install the Bitdefender components, configure the integration, followed by the security agent deployment.

How the integration works

The integration maps Datto RMM sites to BitdefenderGravityZone companies. Bitdefender hosts GravityZoneControl Center, a multi-tenant console where MSPs can manage their customers and apply security protection for specific companies.

The mapping is done at the site level by defining the following variables:

  • The security installation package specifies the security agent that you want to deploy. You can configure this in Control Center. The security agent refers to Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools (BEST) on Windows and Linux, and to Endpoint Security for Mac on macOS.

  • The API key identifies the specific APIs called by the component. You can generate it in Control Center.

  • The Access URL provides access to Control Center. You can find this information in Control Center.

Through this integration, you can deploy the Bitdefender security agent to individual or multiple targets. The deployment is done through jobs and monitoring policies running the Bitdefender component.

Running the Bitdefender components with accurate site variables ensures a correct security agent deployment. Consequently, your Datto RMM targets are correctly grouped and managed in Control Center.
