GravityZone (Cloud-based) Release Notes for April 2021 Update


GravityZone platform

  • Control Center leaves the old blue theme behind and comes with a couple of readability and usability improvements such as:
    • Replaced the scroll bar from the main menu with the More button to reveal additional items.
    • Increased the font size for lower screen resolutions.
    • Removed the top blue bar to make room for actual data.
    • Increased the contrast to the top banner for alerts.
  • The Update Security Server task has two options now, for each type of update you can run, when available:
    • Feature update, for installing the Bitdefender new features, improvements and fixes, and security fixes
    • OS update, for upgrading the operating system of the Security Server VA.
      note Note:
      Run the task with this option to bring the OS of the Security Server to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, the only supported version until new upgrade.
  • The grid in the Network page now includes new columns and several improvements, designed to help you better identify and find endpoints in the inventory:
    • Name. It can now display the MAC address appended to the hostname, to uniquely identify endpoints that may have the same hostname or IP address.
      You need to enable this option in the Configuration > Network Settings > Network Inventory Settings page.
    • Machine type. It shows whether the endpoint is a server or a workstation.
    • OS type. It displays the type of operating system installed on the endpoint.
    • OS version. It shows the version of the operating system installed on the endpoint.
    • Last seen. It now allows you to filter endpoints that were online in the last 24h, 7 days or 30 days.
  • When creating an installation package in the Packages page, you have now the option to choose the operation mode of the security agent:
    • Detection and prevention, which allows you to choose the modules to include in the package, and to enable their full capabilities.
    • EDR (Report only), which creates an EDR package with a predefined list of modules, their functionality being limited to report-only actions. The package includes the following modules:
      • Advanced Threat Control (ATC)
      • EDR Sensor
      • Network Protection (Content Control, Network Attack Defense)
    note Note:
    Available only with GravityZone Ultra, GravityZone Ultra Plus, and Cloud Security for MSP.

Security Telemetry

  • New options for configuring Security Telemetry:
    • Bypass validation of the SSL certificate on HTTP collector, in case your HTTP collector uses a self-signed SSL certificate.
    • Granular event type selection, if you are interested in sending to the SIEM only certain types of events.


  • The App Vulnerabilities details panel now allows you to view the devices impacted by a vulnerable application discovered in your environment.
    When you select a vulnerable application and click the View Devices button it will take you to the Devices section and display a list of all impacted devices.

Email Security

  • You will now know when the Email Security license expires. Just make sure to enable the notifications in the Notifications page.


  • The Incidents page now displays suspicious events in the Endpoint Incidents tab, and events detected by prevention technologies, in the Detected Threats tab.
    note Note:
    This is available for Bitdefender EDR as a standalone solution.

Public API

  • Packages and Network APIs: Added the productType parameter to createPackage and createReconfigureClientTask methods. This parameter is optional and states the operation mode of the agent: EDR (Report only), or Detection and prevention.
  • Event Push Service API: The taskType parameter for Troubleshooting Activity notification is now a string and can have the following values: Gather Logs and Debug Session.
