What makes Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security the best?



What this means for your business

#1 ranked antivirus, antimalware and antispam technologies
Bitdefender uses constant innovation to catch advanced or 0-day threats that other solutions miss, while having the smallest possible impact on system performance. The only solution to have won all VBSpam awards to date, Bitdefender consistently scores top spam detection rates.
Increase productivity by eliminating malware incidents and spam
Bitdefender security gives your business the advantage against malware attacks. Moreover, the proven efficiency of the Bitdefender antispam improves employee productivity.

Security for workstations, servers and mobile devices, plus email protection and antispam from the same console
You can protect workstations, servers, or mobile devices (available with the on-premise console). The number of servers should not exceed 35% of the total number of devices in the license. When purchasing Bitdefender GravityZone Business Security you also receive protection for a number of Exchange mailboxes equal to 150% of the total number of devices within your license.
Comprehensive security and efficient management
Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security provides comprehensive protection and management. This helps modern IT environments address all attack vectors while eliminating the overhead of managing multiple solutions.

Firewall, Intrusion Detection, Device Control, Web Filtering, Search Advisor, Web and Application Control included
The firewall, IDS, and web filtering capabilities are essential to protect against Internet-based threats such as hacking and phishing.
Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security gives you the power to remotely restrict or block employee access to certain applications or web pages.
Get full protection against all types of attacks, and improve productivity
Unlike other solutions, which lack web protection and device control or charge a premium for such capabilities, Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security includes these features at no extra cost. Moreover, with User and Web Control capabilities admins are able to restrict access to websites or applications that harm productivity.

Streamlined deployment and security management
Organizations can use the cloud-hosted management console, or deploy the console locally. Based on hardened Linux machines wrapped in virtual appliances, the Bitdefender on-premise console is configured and ready to use under 30 minutes. Bitdefender automatically detects and removes the previous AV solution upon install.
Save time with more efficient management
The bottom-up GravityZone design and integration with Active Directory, Citrix XenServer, or VMware vCenter (available on-premise) allow you to save time and streamline security processes. Rolling out protection to a large number of endpoints is also simplified with auto-detection, uninstall of legacy solutions, and mass remote deployment mechanisms.

Smart Centralized Scanning – optimized performance
Bitdefender allows you to run up to 30% more virtual machines compared to traditional solutions by optimizing and centralizing scan tasks. Unlike solutions that rely on the VMware vShield driver, Bitdefender covers any virtual environment and provides load balancing capabilities, as well as memory and process scanning.
Save money by minimizing security resource consumption
The scanning offload and the advanced caching mechanisms minimize resource consumption for virtual or physical machines. This allows you to save money by running more machines on the same infrastructure.

Security for Amazon Web Services

Bitdefender Security for Amazon Web Services can be purchased separately and managed from the same cloud-hosted console as Bitdefender Advanced GravityZone Business Security.
