You’ll find many Bitdefender Gravityzone Business Security features that set it apart from the standard antivirus plans, honing in on the protection companies need to prevent IT hacks, defects, and attacks. Most of the functionality relies on heuristics and machine learning. It also integrates with several other functions.
Advanced Threat Detection and Control
One area where Bitdefender for Business excels is endpoint detection and control of threats to the IT system. Besides defending against malware and phishing attacks during web browsing, your team won’t suffer from poor computer or server performance while the program is running in the background.
Here are some of the tools used for threat detection:
- Process inspection: The Process Inspector is a proprietary technology that assesses all computer processes throughout your company. It hunts down any strange behavior on the server, such as tasks disguised as vital system software
- Machine learning: Gravityzone detects threat patterns using machine learning algorithms, assessing them against data collected from 500 million endpoints worldwide. Artificial intelligence uses this system to reduce false negatives
- Exploit prevention: You’ll find real-time protection against zero-day attacks and exploitation. These processes attempt to find weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your company’s IT system that haven’t been identified yet.
Reporting and Analytics
Bitdefender Gravityzone Business Security has plenty of reporting and analytics functions for evaluating the network status, updating security policies and protocols, and incident transparency. There’s a Control Central platform for managing all aspects from one central location, except email protection, as that works from a different system. You can also customize the built-in reports that you want running simultaneously and how you want to view them.
Other Integrated Features
Besides the central platform where you can manage all processes, there’s a separate email console. The risk management protocols let you view app vulnerabilities, while there’s a sandbox mode for you to analyze specific files for possible detonation. You can also implement numerous policies for endpoint users with advanced controls.
Performance and Protection
Even with all these amazing features from the Bitdefender for Business solution, you’ll find that it barely puts a strain on your IT network or endpoint computers. Processes run smoothly in the background without anyone noticing until a threat is detected. Here are some of the protection features you’ll have available.
Protection Against Malware and Viruses
The antimalware and antivirus sections continuously monitor heuristics, signatures, processes, and files for any malicious content as identified on the global threat network. It checks for abnormal behavior on your system while ensuring real-time scanning for any threats. You can run a custom scan or schedule one for after-hours when your employees have gone home.
Defense Against Network Attacks
Network hackers and attackers love finding system vulnerabilities that they can exploit. Some methods they use include password stealing, phishing, spyware, and brute-force attacks. You can take a stand against these attempts with GravityZone’s network defense protocols.
If you’re worried about malicious files entering your IT system via email, Bitdefender Gravityzone Business Security has an advanced approach to defend against it. It uses its threat intelligence network to identify spam, malware, spoofing, CEO fraud, and fake marketing mail, to name a few. You can also set custom rules for inbound and outbound content.
Elimination of Competitive Solutions
Your company’s IT system may have conflicting firewalls or antivirus solutions that are causing slow performance. When you install and run Bitdefender for Business, it automatically detects and removes these products for you. You can choose to let the program do so for the entire network or at each endpoint device.
Privacy and Security
GravityZone has several tools to ensure that the privacy of your IT network is secure. In the modern age of sophisticated technology, it’s easy for hackers to enter your company’s system and steal information. Bitdefender has some features in place to ensure that doesn’t happen.
At the top of the list is web browsing security, which the system implements across your entire system. Every endpoint is protected when users go online to view sites and download content. You can also edit the exclusions and indicate which categories you want GravityZone to focus on.
Application and Process Control
To prevent someone from accessing your webcams to spy on you or taking control of your applications, Bitdefender Gravityzone Business Security has protocols in place to protect your devices. The Process Inspector will also view all tasks running in the background to ensure that no one is silently stealing company information from you. The program manages the relevant patches to keep your operating systems and network up-to-date.
Unfortunately, there are times when someone from the inside might be messing with your company’s information or accessing content that they shouldn’t. You’ll be able to assign user permissions for who can do what, protecting your network from employee mistakes. It gives your IT team control over which employees can access specific sites or download files from reliable sources.
When you get Bitdefender for Business, you’ll automatically receive the free Bitdefender VPN with limited features. While it provides access for 200MB daily traffic, the Small Office Security Plan upgrades it to 500MB. To take full advantage of the VPN’s services, you’ll need to subscribe to the Premium Plan.
File and Policy Management
The top priority for any company is to ensure that files are safe and protected from prying eyes. While GravityZone makes sure that no one outside your network has access to your documents and data, it also prevents any changes from being made. You’ll receive a notification if any such attempt is made.
Your saved files aren’t the only items on your network that are under threat from being stolen. There’s confidential information that you don’t want in the wrong hands, such as employee data, salaries, business accounts, and digital products. All of these will be safe from online hackers who wish to sell the details to the highest bidder or use it to hold you to ransom.
