What is most valuable?

One feature I found valuable was controlling from the cloud. It was better for me that GravityZone could be controlled from the cloud.

What needs improvement?

We are having trouble on the server side. But also on the endpoint side. For example, specifically on my computer, I couldn't run it, so I had to remove the program. I'm not using endpoint security for now, especially not Bitdefenders right… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously we just used ESET.

What other advice do I have?

If you move from the cloud and can find good support in your country, it's advisable. But otherwise, the next time, I think I'd not choose Bitdefender GravityZone. I would rate the solution a 6 or 6.5 out of 10. Because of the issues we… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Kapersky and a few more. Kapersky was better than this product. I knew the Bitdefender engine was used by so many devices and the engine was known very well. But as an antivirus program, Kapersky and ESET were better than this… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We tested it in a laboratory, not yet in real life, and we ran Zero-day. The antivirus found that it was trying to write in a particular memory zone. It blocked the… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution performed very well in handling threats, antivirus is baseline for any organization and it is very dangerous not to take care of the basics. We would like to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is done on a yearly basis and it's workstation-based. The actual price is confidential. There are no additional costs beyond the standard license.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

This is a complementary solution, it was not intended to replace a particular solution.

What other advice do I have?

Take this solution into consideration. Evaluate it, analyze it, do a PoC, and then make a decision. Having this solution in your portfolio, or at least having analyzed it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

yes - Symantec, Mcafee, Avast

There is room for improvement in the communication between servers and endpoints. The performance there needs to be much better. When we install endpoints and they… more»

A good thing about Bitdefender is its price. It has a suitable price for every company and organization. I evaluated a lot of antivirus solutions, but some of them were so… more»

What is most valuable?

The cloud management is really good. We don't do internal testing, we base our knowledge on the external tests and AV tests. The cloud management is easy and useful, especially in our case when we have multiple offices in different… more»

What needs improvement?

We have not had any major problems with Bitdefender, it seems to be quite good. There are some additional features that they can implement in the product. For example, a remote wipe option or a geo-tracking for the laptop. That may not be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is a fully functional trial that we used and we didn't have any issues.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously we did not use a different solution. Bitdefender GravityZone is the first one for this company.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution and there isn't anything to be worried about. The only thing that I would probably test is your internal applications. We don't rely on this, but rather, we rely on the cloud applications that are widely known… more»

What is most valuable?

I like the style of it. It's great because I have access to it from anywhere.

What needs improvement?

The solution can be improved by being able to pull up the localization key map of the user. Also, to be more international, not just American compliant.

What other advice do I have?

I do wish the two solutions I picked up had the same way of working, but that's not the case. So, it's a compromise. I really like it; I really had a good time with the professional who pushed Bitdefender with me. He had a good experience. I don't know if I had the strength to set up everything. I needed to pre-offer the application, and I've tried Cryptids, pre-boot encryption on the drive, and… more»

Easy management of the endpoint protection. In simple words, it is awesome, very simple to use, understand, and apply its policies. Another feature is traffic scan, which… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We do not have any problems with viruses, cryptolockers, or other harmful threats.

What needs improvement?

One thing that could be improved is more granularity and options on exclusions. I have some difficulty in allowing executables that were deployed every time on different… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In my opinion and based on interactions with other vendors, Bitdefender is the cheapest solution out there. The licensing is yearly-based.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, I was using Kaspersky with no central management option. The main reasons we switched were: * Centralized Management * No client interaction * More points in… more»

What other advice do I have?

Looking from an IT perspective, it is the best in industry endpoint protection software, if we are talking about Windows/Linux/mobile (Android).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes. Norton AntiVirus, ESET Antivirus, and AVG.

Bitdefender GravityZone Questions

What is Bitdefender GravityZone?

Bitdefender GravityZone's ENDPOINT SECURITY TOOLS intelligent security agent assesses the host machine at installation to self-configure to optimal form, and adapts its behavior according to endpoint accessibility. Security administrators allocate resources to security tasks through policies per groups of machines. They can set security tools to work on a local machine, or they can decide to rely more on Bitdefender Global Protective Network, or totally offload security to security servers.
