improved cybersecurity

Analytics Driven Hardening

Continuously assess, prioritize and harden endpoint security misconfigurations and settings with an easy-to-understand prioritized list.

Capabilities and Benefits

integrated risk analytics

Continuously analyze endpoint risks to uncover and prioritize misconfigurations and enable automatic hardening actions to remedy vulnerabilities. Identify user actions and behavior that pose a security risk to your organization, including logging into insecure websites, poor password management, and compromised USB usage.

ransomware prevention and mitigation

Beating ransomware requires understanding the full cyber kill chain and mapping defenses to each attack stage. 

Ransomware prevention and mitigation is built into the GravityZone Management Console and consists of:

•       automatic, up-to-date tamperproof backup copies of user files, without using shadow copies;

•       blocking and prevention capabilities (Fileless Attack Defense; Network Attack Defense; Advanced Anti-Exploit; Machine Learning Anti-Malware);

•       multiple detection layers (Process inspection, registry monitoring, code inspection, Hyper Detect);

•       user and system risk mitigation technologies.

human behavior risk analytics

Helps identify user actions and behaviors that pose a security risk to the organization such as using unencrypted web pages for logging into websites, poor password management, usage of compromised USBs in the organization’s network, recurrent infections etc.

By placing the human element in the middle of the risk analytics and management strategy, your organization becomes even harder to breach.

multilayer cyber defense

Signature-less technologies, including advanced local and cloud machine learning, behavior analysis, integrated sandbox, and device hardening, work as highly effective, layered, protection against sophisticated threats.

cyber forensics

Attack forensics and visualization enhance the level of visibility into your organization’s threat landscape and reveals the broader context of attacks on endpoints. It lets you zero in on specific threats and take corrective action.

network security

Detect and prevent network vulnerability attacks. Network attack defense blocks network attacks including brute force, password stealers, and lateral movement before they can execute. Network attack defense is an important source of information for EDR incident correlations.

Bitdefender to join forces with Horangi Cyber Security

Bitdefender named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security, Q4 2023

The independent report evaluated top providers and how they stack up, confirming, in our opinion Bitdefender as a global leader in cybersecurity. The report notes Bitdefender “differentiates with its aggressive prevention-first mindset”.

Advanced Prevention Technologies


HyperDetect™ blocks file-less Attacks at pre-execution

HyperDetect contains machine learning models and stealth attack detection technology that is designed to detect attacks and suspicious activities in the pre-execution stage.

Sandbox Analyzer enhances targeted attack detection

Sandbox Analyzer provides pre-execution detection of advanced attacks. It automatically sends files that require further analysis to a cloud sandbox, then takes appropriate action based on the sandbox findings.

Machine Learning predicts and blocks advanced attacks

GravityZone uses Machine Learning across its entire technology portfolio including the scanning engine, HyperDetect, Sandbox Analyzer, content control and Global Protective Network.

Exploit Defense safeguards memory

With Exploit Defense, the list of exploits blocked is extended to the pre-execution stage, protecting against known and unknown exploits early in the attack chain.

GravityZone Business Security Premium review - Denis Muckensturm - IT Manager, Les Jardins de Gaia

“GravityZone’s security protection ranked consistently high in all the major research studies. It was great that Bitdefender took care of security, removal, and cleaning all in one package, so we wouldn’t need to manage multiple solutions. We also liked the efficiency of centrally managing all of our computers from the cloud, including the Exchange server.”
