GravityZone (Cloud-based) Release Notes for March 2018 Update
Release date: March 2018
New Features and Improvements
- Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
GravityZone makes room for new Incident remediation actions, such as company level blocklist and endpoint isolation from an affected network. Glance over techniques that have been used at different points in the attack chain.
With the new search bar, you can find incidents by indicators of compromise (IOCs). Furthermore, several UX improvements bring a better navigation experience.
You can now get notifications when incidents are generated, and view Dashboard Reports for up to date information on advanced attacks.
- Patch Management
Patch Management provides centralized OS and software patches distribution, ending your worries with outdated software on Windows endpoints. Due to the GravityZone architecture, Patch Management easily scales in large networks and optimizes the network traffic generated by patches deployment. Just enable the Patch Caching Server role on the Relay agents. Furthermore, with automatic patch scanning and deployment, you gain time to focus on other subjects.
Note: Patch Management is available with an add-on license key.
- Security for Virtualized Environments
Security Servers come into scene for MSPs and companies using monthly subscription. By leveraging Security Servers, you can now secure the virtual workload with the lowest impact on the performance of your virtualized infrastructure, due to the centralized scanning and multi-caching technologies employed.
You can install Security Servers on your premises, or use the ones your Bitdefender Partner has shared with you.
The new integration between GravityZone and Splunk allows you to send data to Splunk Cloud and Splunk Enterprise by using HTTP Event Collector. The integration of the two platforms is easily made via Event Push Service API.
- Two-factor authentication
New login option that adds an extra layer of protection to your GravityZone account. After activating the two-factor authentication (2FA) from your account settings, the Control Center login will also require a Google Authenticator code.
- Public API
Added support in Companies and Licensing APIs for the new integrations and features.
New option for Monthly License Usage report in Reports API. Added usage summary as an optional section of the CSV file.
