Bitdefender’s flagship endpoint security solution Bitdefender GravityZone also received the highest scores possible in the Platform support, product roadmap and licensing partner presence criteria
BUCHAREST, Romania/Santa Clara, Calif. — June 21, 2018 — Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity-technology company protecting 500 million users worldwide, today announced it had been named as a leader by Forrester Research in its Q2 2018 Forrester Wave™ evaluation of Endpoint Security Suites. As part of this evaluation, Bitdefender’s flagship endpoint security solution Bitdefender GravityZone also received the highest scores possible in the Platform support, product roadmap and licensing partner presence criteria
According to the Forrester report: “Buyers want an endpoint security suite that is effective at stopping modern threats without adding to their security team’s complexity. They also want to trust the vendor, both as a strategic partner and as a steward of their data.” The report also mentions “One of Bitdefender’s major differentiators is the reach of its sensor network.” It also states that “Customers report above-average prevention capabilities and a low detriment to endpoint user experience. “
Bitdefender GravityZone is an integrated layered next-gen endpoint protection and easy-to-use detection and response platform that accurately protects enterprises against even the most elusive cyber threats. Multiple layers of defenses deployed in a unified platform, provide strong prevention and automated responses to reduce unnecessary noise from false alarms and trivial threats.
Forrester only included 15 vendors in the assessment that met 3 key inclusion criteria: “they had a security suite that can prevent, detect, and remediate endpoint threats, a strong enterprise market presence and a high degree of interest from enterprise buyers.”
“By moving to cloud, we needed a product like Bitdefender that was easy to manage and deploy via a single console,” says Lance Harris, Chief Information Security Officer, Esurance. “Unlike other niche-oriented products, Bitdefender provides a holistic, layered solution with endpoint detection response (EDR), anti-virus, anti-malware, behavior learning, and patch management all integrated together.”
Bitdefender has more than 600 engineers and researchers constantly monitoring its global network of more than 500 million sensors for emerging threats. The team aggregates the data to identify exactly what is happening in the industry, enabling development of new technology expressly designed to mitigate imminent cyber threats.
“We believe our placement as a leader and the scores we’ve received in the Forrester Wave are a testament to the Bitdefender solution providing a highly integrated and simple to use endpoint security platform to serve all levels of enterprise customer’s needs,” said Harish Agastya, VP of Enterprise Solutions at Bitdefender.
Whether physical or virtual, a combination of on premise and private or public cloud, GravityZone offers organizations dramatically faster and more efficient risk management. Unlike traditional vendors patching together pre-virtualization and pre-cloud Windows applications, Bitdefender GravityZone is built from the ground up and combines all the security services organizations need into a single delivery platform, reducing costs of deploying a trusted environment for all endpoints.
