WHAT IS BITDEFENDER GRAVITYZONE?
Bitdefender GravityZone is the new Bitdefender enterprise security solution for Medium-Sized to Very Large Organizations. It’s redesigned from the ground up with a fresh, but proven private cloud computing architecture that takes full advantage of virtualized infrastructures. GravityZone leverages Bitdefender’s acclaimed antimalware technologies and provides centralized security management platform for physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints.
GravityZone is a business-agile solution that implements a holistic approach. Not just antivirus, but an enterprise-grade solution that helps organizations attain their virtualization projects objectives and secure data, while preserving the systems’ performance and users’ productivity.
With built-in redundancy and a load-balancing mechanism, it can scale-out on demand to protect from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of endpoints, and provides administrators with a single pane of glass view into the organization’s security postures, global threats and dashboards for various roles within the organization.
WHAT IS THE NEW BITDEFENDER GRAVITYZONE?
From platform architecture to security services, GravityZone emerges as a reinvented next-gen enterprise security solution built for the new IT landscape. The solution combines highly optimized virtualization-aware security with leading detection technologies and a fresh, but proven, architecture.
Complex enterprise environments require tailored, integrated security solutions that support heterogeneous environments with a broad range of systems and usage scenarios. GravityZone has been designed to deliver optimized security for the new threats and risks of data exposures introduced by:
- Exponential evolution of malware and professionalization, combined with;
- Increased Internet penetration;
- Exponential increase of data;
- IT consumerization and convergence of devices and services;
- Cloud computing and virtualization technologies.
All this has changed the IT landscape, the way information is delivered and consumed, and how applications and services are provisioned.
GravityZone itself is implemented as a private cloud solution that runs on virtualized layers and it’s packed to enable organizations to secure their IT assets, while helping to reduce administration burden, lower TCO and improve the return on investment. The solution removes the scalability limitation of legacy solutions based on client-server architecture and relational databases.
The improvement continues with security services, too. GravityZone extends and integrates security services to virtualized environments and mobile devices. So, as users expect a uniform experience when consuming information on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, the information security will be preserved, too, whether it is accessed locally or remotely, from a workstation or a mobile device, or whether the company uses traditional or virtualized infrastructures.
GravityZone Enteprise Security comes with HyperDetect, a next-gen layer in pre-execution that uses specialized local machine models, behavior analysis techniques trained to spot hacking tools, exploits and malware obfuscation techniques.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY UNIFIED SECURITY FOR PHYSICAL, VIRTUALIZED AND MOBILE ENVIRONMENTS?
GravityZone is unified by design and aims to cover all security requirements in a single solution. In the current stage, it unifies the main security services and provides a single point of management for security of physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints. Future development will integrate new security services into GravityZone, such as security for email and collaboration, and will add enhancements for services and support for other platforms.
Unlike other solutions that bolt modules on to an aging architecture, importing different third-party technologies and trying to put them together, Bitdefender GravityZone has been architected from the ground up as a unified security management platform across physical, virtualized and mobile environments. Its modular design allows flexible and tailored security services, and role-based administration. The solution is comprised of the following integrated components:
- GravityZone Control Center – the management platform that provides the single point of security management across organization.
- Security for Endpoints – protects Windows workstations and servers.
- Security for Virtualized Environments – protects virtualized Windows and Linux guest systems, running on VMware, Citrix, Microsoft or any other virtualization platform
- Security for Mobile Devices – enables secured BYOD adoption, with easy delivery and control of mobile device security for effective administration.
IS GRAVITYZONE SVE SERVICE MANDATORY OR CAN I CHOOSE ANY SECURITY SERVICES?
GravityZone is 100% modularized, meaning you can choose the services you want to license, with the needed number of units per each one.
Even if GravityZone is delivered as a virtual appliance, its deployment does not require activation of Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE). However, if you already run or plan to deploy virtualization projects, we do recommend you implement SVE.
With GravityZone you benefit from effective security and improved administration efficiency from two directions. On one side is the reduced administrative burden due to centralized management and architecture benefits with simple turn-key deployment of GravityZone virtual appliance, built-in redundancy and scalability mechanism, and on the other side is the optimized virtualization security services of SVE that will help you attain your business objectives concerning virtualization projects and realize the full potential of your investments.
DOES GRAVITYZONE SUPPORT A MIXED VIRTUALIZED ENVIRONMENT?
For example, there is a need to provide security for VMs running on VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V at the same time.
Yes, with Security for Virtualized Environments service of GravityZone you can manage all types of virtualization scenarios from a single point of management. GravityZone Control Center is integrated with VMware vCenter and Citrix XenCenter, and also supports many other virtualization platforms, like Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM, RedHat Enterprise Virtualization, or Oracle Virtualization.
