Bitdefender GravityZone

GravityZone is ideal for virtually any sized business, though at smaller sizes (3 - 5 computers/users) other options may be more cost effective, including other Bitdefender products. In addition, while Bitdefender's flexibility and power-user features are really nice, these same features can make it difficult to use for the less tech-inclined. Finally, Bitdefender is ideal for Windows servers as it can be figured specifically for server use.

Graylog

If you already have a basic understanding of Elasticsearch and/or MongoDB, Graylog will be a great fit when it comes to log aggregation. It will be a decent option even if you don't have any experience but have the time and willingness to roll up your sleeves that learning those tools will require. Graylog supports plugins to extend functionality for things like SNMP traps, telemetry collection, and solar flares. As is the case with most software with plugins, if the core functionality for which you are looking (i.e. not logging) is based on a plugin, Graylog probably isn't for you. The majority of the plugins in the marketplace are developed by third-parties looking to solve their specific use case so bug fixes and new features are not a given.

Pros

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • The Gravity Zone console is quite easy to use, particularly if the person assigned to implement and deploy have a good understanding of how to make it work to get at the information needed.
  • The Dashboard is customizable to get at the information needed in one location.
  • Pushing tasks across the network is quite easy.
  • Having said the what is available in gravity zone, it is easy to see what devices have activity that frequently result in quarantines. This allows us to address "misuse" of our devices. Which brings me to my final point...
  • The policies can be set up to lock devices down with very strict rules (such as device locking) or with relaxed policies.

  • The free edition is extraordinarily powerful.
  • Log searching is quick.
  • The web interface is sleek, and the install is relatively quick.

Cons

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • I wish we could access logs from the cloud-based product. Not just in a viewable sense but from a download so that we can scrape them for interesting strings.
  • Bitdefender needs to make it easier to export data from the web interface. As it stands now, it's a time-consuming copy and paste activity.
  • I would like for there to a notification service when someone encounters malware. For example, an email to our IT team when someone's Bitdefender quarantines a file.

  • Pricing for Enterprise is a bit unrealistic.
  • Archiving should be a standard feature in the community edition.

It works. I rely heavily on my vendors to provide a product that works, is easy to implement, and that they support. As well as be a decent value for the money

The console is easy to use, but has grown to have a lot of functionality. The only challenge is that all functions (even disabled and not installed ones) are shown. It would be great if only the functions that are active would be visible.

Support is an area Bitdefender has always struggled with. While their products work great, the GravityZone dashboard is very technical in nature. If you aren't IT inclined, it could be difficult to setup. While most times support is helpful, we tend to work with them over email because of their very thick accent, they are hard to understand over the phone.

They have good online documentation. I haven't had to use their support much, which is a good thing I would assume since most everything they do is the standard way to do it. When I have used their support is was the online documentation; it seems to be well supported by Graylog and the community. Every issue I had, I was able to resolve using their documentation or the forums with questions on their website.

Alternatives Considered

Bitdefender GravityZone

We were a Kaspersky shop for years. Kaspersky was a resource hog and it didn't even block half of what was thrown at it. We had more outbreaks and more end-user complaints in a year of Kaspersky then we have had in almost three years of Bitdefender.

Graylog provides some great functionality for free. There are some more premium products that would handle more logs and would be a little easier to configure

Return on Investment

Bitdefender GravityZone

  • Has stopped a few advanced attacks with the EDR sensor capability and also allowed us to trace back threats. This is key so we know with confidence the threat has been removed.
  • Risk analysis goes further and shows misconfigurations, and other security risks that can quickly be resolved. This saves us time when auditing and also gives us assurance that we don’t have small loopholes.
  • Being fully cloud managed is another key factor; with employees working from home this gives us peace of mind that devices are protected and allows us to manage security.

Graylog

  • We do not purchase support, so the only operational cost is that of the time it takes to maintain it.
  • All the components of Graylog that we use are free and open source, so there was no capital expense other than that of servers (repurposed from another recently-decommissioned project).
  • If there is a software crash that doesn't recover gracefully, it's usually something obscure that will take a while to diagnose and fix. Unless you build out a distributed and more resilient system with no single points of failure, that may have an impact on the organization or industry requirements for compliance.
