GravityZone By Bitdefender Hits Market February 2013

GravityZone provides full scale enterprise-wide management of physical, virtual, and mobile endpoints

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 - Bucharest, Romania– Bitdefender, an award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, today announced GravityZone will be available for on February 25, 2013. The company launched its GravityZone beta program on November, 2012, and early results demonstrate significant positive feedback.

GravityZone is built on Bitdefender Gravity Architecture, which is a centralized security management system. Using cloud computing architecture, GravityZone represents a breakthrough in its integration with VMware, Citrix and Microsoft, and it offers unprecedented time and cost savings due to its ability to offload scanning and deduplication functionality for physical and virtual environments. The first of its kind, GravityZone provides full scale enterprise-wide management of physical, virtual and mobile endpoints.

"Based on what we're hearing from our beta testers, other solutions on the market may be well-marketed, but do not deliver in terms of scalability or competitive solutions are still considered 'first generation'," said Gavin Hill, Director of Product Marketing, Bitdefender. "GravityZone is built based on the vision that enterprises need to centralize the management of all endpoints, they need to do it in a highly scalable way, and they need to do it without draining resources."

"We've been testing GravityZone since the beta program started, and its proving to deliver the kind of security management solution for all endpoints in a mixed environment – physical, virtual and mobile," said Dennis Derks, ICT Consultant, FlexVirtual. "From the beginning, we noticed that deploying GravityZone took very little time than we have experienced with competitive solutions on the market. In our company datacenter we are testing GravityZone with VMware vShield, Windows 8 and the latest Android platform, and this has been one of the quickest and most reliable tools we've implemented. Furthermore, unlike other solution providers, the Bitdefender support and development teams have been highly responsive and dependable for any needs or updates we require. We've been very impressed."

"GravityZone has a special appeal to service providers of all kinds, especially MSPs who are responsible for the management and performance of their customers' IT operations, and who may fall under regulatory compliance laws such as HIPPA, SOX, PCI-DSS, GLBA, FISMA and others," said added Gavin Hill. "All organizations, which face dealing with security management for BYOD and hybrid environments, now have an easy, modular solution that scales to meet the unique needs of today's enterprises."

"Innovative solutions like GravityZone will be added to FlexVirtual's solution stack for End User Computing, because of its simplicity during implementation and effectiveness in production environments," said Alex Pelster, Director, FlexVirtual.

GravityZone licensing will be modular and flexible, based on CPU or VMs (virtualization) or protected endpoints (physical and mobile).

GravityZone appeals to customers of all sizes, GravityZone-in-a-Box is an all-in-one virtual appliance that caters to less than 250 seats, providing physical, virtualization and mobile security from one console. GravityZone is designed for customers of 250 seats and above, scaling very rapidly to hundreds of thousands of users, all managed from one console.
