GravityZone virtual appliance

GravityZone on-premises solution is delivered as a Linux Ubuntu self-configuring hardened virtual appliance, embedded into a virtual machine image, easy to install and configure through a menu-based interface. The virtual appliance is available in several formats, compatible with the main virtualization platforms (OVA, XVA, VHD, OVF, RAW).

The GravityZone appliance has one or more of these server roles:

GravityZone Database

The central logic of GravityZone architecture. Bitdefender uses MongoDB non-relational database, easy to scale and replicate.

GravityZone Update Server

The Update Server has an important role of updating GravityZone solution and endpoint agents by replicating and publishing the needed packages or installation files.

GravityZone Communication Server

The Communication Server is the link between security agents and the database, transferring policies and tasks to protected endpoints and also the events reported by security agents.

Web Console (GravityZone Control Center)

Bitdefender security solutions are managed from a single point of management, Control Center web console. This provides easier management and access to overall security posture, global security threats, and control over all security modules protecting virtual or physical desktops, servers and mobile devices. Powered by a Gravity Architecture, Control Center is capable of addressing the needs of even the largest organizations.

Control Center integrates with the existing system management and monitoring systems to make it simple to automatically apply protection to unmanaged workstations, servers or mobile devices that appear on the Microsoft Active Directory, VMware vCenter, Nutanix Prism Element or Citrix XenServer or that are simply detected in the network.

Incidents Server

The Incidents Server is the link between security agents and the database, collecting endpoint data and generating incidents based on threats detected by prevention technologies and machine learning algorithms.

Report Builder Database

The Report Builder Database role provides the data required for creating query-based reports.

Report Builder Processors

The Report Builder Processors role is essential for creating, managing and storing the query-based reports that use information from Report Builder Database.
