ON PREMISES SOLUTIONS

GravityZone (on-premises) communication ports

GravityZone is a distributed solution, meaning that its components communicate with each other through the use of the local network or the Internet. Each component uses a series of ports to communicate with the others.

Note

For the GravityZone (cloud) communication ports, refer to this section.

This section describes the communication ports used by the GravityZone components when the security solution is installed on the premises of your company.

You need to have these ports open and to exclude all addresses mentioned in this table from any gateway security solution or network packet inspection so that GravityZone functions flawlessly.

Syslog

Communication with Syslog/SIEM servers over syslog protocol. The usual Syslog communication destination ports are UDP 514 and TCP 1468. However, you should check the exact ports with your Syslog/SIEM vendor. GravityZone supports custom ports for Syslog on both UDP and TCP.

*Since the relay is an update server that needs to listen all the time on a port, Bitdefender provides a mechanism able to automatically open a random port on localhost (127.0.0.1), so that the update server can receive proper configuration details. The update server tries to open the 7075 port to listen on localhost. If 7075 port is unavailable, the update server will search for another port that is free (in the range of 1025 to 65535) and successfully bind to listen on localhost.

Port 7074 must be open for deployment through Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools Relay to work.
