Prepare for installation

For installation, you need a GravityZone virtual appliance image.

After you deploy and set up the GravityZone appliance, you can remotely install the client or download the necessary installation packages for all security services components from the Control Center web interface.

The GravityZone appliance image is available in several different formats, compatible with the main virtualization platforms.

You can obtain the download links by registering for a trial on the Bitdefender website. When filling out the required form, select one of these on-premises products: Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments, Bitdefender GravityZone Security for Endpoints, Bitdefender GravityZone Security for Exchange, Bitdefender GravityZone Security for Mobile.

You can obtain the license key by making an inquiry on the Bitdefender Business Products Inquiry website.

For installation and initial setup, you must have the following at hand:

  • DNS names or fixed IP addresses (either by static configuration or via a DHCP reservation) for the GravityZone appliances

  • Username and password of a domain administrator

  • vCenter Server, NSX Manager, XenServer details (hostname or IP address, communication port, administrator username and password)

  • License keys (check the trial registration or purchase email)

  • Outgoing mail server settings

  • If needed, proxy server settings

  • Security certificates
