Bitdefender Enterprise Unveils GravityZone

Bitdefender Enterprise Unveils GravityZone 
Full scale security management for physical, virtual and mobile hits
the market 
Editors Note: There is a video associated with this press release. 
Bitdefender, a provider of innovative security solutions, today
announced the general availability of GravityZone, a centralized
security management system for physical, virtual and mobile
Using cloud computing architecture, GravityZone embodies a
significant advance in security management for all endpoints.
GravityZone is the first of its kind in capability and performance,
providing security managers, IT departments, policy makers and system
integrators with a highly scalable centralized security management
system. In addition, GravityZone is fully integrated with VMware,
Citrix and Microsoft, and it offers unprecedented time and cost
savings due to its ability to offload scanning, and deduplicating and
centralizing functionality for physical and virtualized environments. 
"GravityZone represents a major shift in thinking about security
management for endpoints and delivers a turnkey solution like no
other on the market. Many companies turn to point so
lutions that
require too much care and maintenance. Competitive solutions
characteristically require long and cumbersome timeframes for
deployment and are not easily scalable," said Shaun Donaldson,
Director of Global Alliances, Bitdefender.   
"GravityZone delivers on the vision that enterprises need to
centralize and manage quickly without draining resources on
deployment and on-going maintenance. GravityZone was architected
based on our highly popular Gravity Architecture, developed by our
teams in 2010. We determined the innovation behind Gravity
Architecture would help enterprises manage and control all endpoints
in a single system, reduce the need for point solutions, resources
and time for deployment, and allow updates, changes, and policies to
propagate easily across the enterprise," added Donaldson.  
How architecture makes the difference  
The unique architecture of GravityZone allows the solution to scale
with ease and secure any number of systems. The turn-key deployment
is accomplished by simply importing a virtual appliance to run on any
virtualization platform. Integration with Microsoft Active Directory,
VMware vCenter, and Citrix XenServer reduces the effort of deploying
protection for physical and for virtual endpoints. Organizations have
the flexibility to deploy any or all of the three security services
within GravityZone: Security for Virtualized Environments, Security
for Endpoints, and Security for Mobile Devices. After the initial
deployment, adding new services requires only a quick activation in
the console. 
Detection technologies consistently ranked #1 in independent tests  
Using signature-based engines but also the proprietary B-HAVE and AVC
technologies, Bitdefender consistently ranks first in trials from
AV-Test, AV-Comparatives and Virus Bulletin. B-HAVE employs
heuristics in a virtual container (sandbox) to detect threats that
get past signature detection while AVC overcomes even sophisticated
detection avoidance techniques by monitoring processes for malicious
activity as long as they are active.  
GravityZone licensing is modular and flexible, and based on CPU or
VMs (virtualization) or protected endpoints (physical and mobile).  
Coming in May, 2013 - GravityZone-in-a-Box  
GravityZone appeals to customers of all sizes; GravityZone-in-a-Box
is an all-in-one virtual appliance that caters to organizations that
need instant protection that can span across physical, virtualized
and mobile endpoints from one console. GravityZone is designed to
provide architectural flexibility for organizations with complex
requirements, scaling very rapidly from hundreds to hundreds of
thousands of endpoints, all managed from one console.
