What do you like best?
Protecting our endpoints from malware has become easy with Bitdefender GravityZone. GravityZone is the new management console from Bitdefender for business/enterprise grade protection. It's been built from the ground up to give a light and agile protection to our endpoints, mobile devices and virtual environments.
What do you dislike?
The size of the client installer. It's about 400 MB, due to the fact that it consolidates the 32 bits and 64 bits versions. It also keeps the same size no matter if you decide that you won't install some of the components of the antimalware protection (like firewall or content filter).
Recommendations to others considering the product
Gravitiy Zone is the new management console from Bitdefender and it has been buillt from the ground up, considering two main trends: virtualization and cloud. Hence, you can opt to do hybrid analisys on the endpoints to speed up the analysis process, leveraging on the resources of the Bitdefender Cloud. And regarding virtualization, you can install security appliances in your hypervisor, so you don't have to install an agent on each and every virtual machine you have. This way the antimalware cause less consumption of resources to your virtual environment.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have opted for the Cloud version of GravityZone, since we have some clients in our main offices and a couple more on a branch offfice in a different country. Using the cloud version of GravityZone makes you forget these endpoints are on different networks, the administration is seamless, no matter the endpoints are not all in the same LAN.
