Panorama9 IT management platform incorporates Bitdefender Client Security for Endpoints

Bitdefender, the creator of the world’s most effective antivirus, has reached an agreement with IT management platform provider Panorama9 to join forces in offering iron-clad security to managed service providers (MSPs) in Europe, North America and elsewhere.

Under the agreement, Panorama9 will include Bitdefender Client Security for Endpoints with its state-of-the-art cloud management platform to meet the increasing security demands of MSPs and other users. Panorama9 will offer Bitdefender protection along with its dozens of tools such as hardware and software management, compliance monitoring, flexible integrations and more.

Fraud, hacking, phishing and other crimes are expanding rapidly across the globe, prompting small, medium and large companies to seek the protection of Bitdefender software, which has won dozens of global awards, including Product of the Year from AV-Comparatives, the #1 spot in the most rigorous test yet designed by AV-Test and 17 straight VB100 certificates since 2011.

Panorama9 Chief Executive Officer Allan Thorvaldsen says Bitdefender software, which can be selected by clients via an optional button on sign-up to Panorama9 services, will help the platform provider gain more clients and raise its retention rate.

“Bitdefender software is designed with a maximum degree of effectiveness, simplicity and ease of use, so we believe it goes hand-in-hand with Panorama9 and the services that we deliver,” Thorvaldsen said. “Our early feedback from clients about Bitdefender has been phenomenal.”

“It’s always nice to see a vote of confidence from a high-quality client such as Panorama9,” said Peter Laakkonen, Bitdefender’s General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. “The agreement with Panorama9 also gives Bitdefender new opportunities to prove its effectiveness to managed service providers on several continents.”
