Bitdefender GravityZone

Bitdefender is one of the best, probably the best, AV product currently on the market. I've used Viper for business and was infected with a virus. I've tested Fortinet Endpoint Protection, but remained a GravityZone customer. Overall, if you get this and deploy it, you can't go wrong. Their AI engine is first class and cutting edge.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

It is most suited in larger organizations where policies don't have firewall restrictions and the domains are not yet protected and it is less appropriate in organizations that have already implemented firewalls and necessary threat detection mechanisms. Some organizations have a larger honeypot and they implement specific algorithms to protect their systems

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.

  • Runs in the background.

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.

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.

While I have only had a few questions for them, Bitdefender GravityZone staff were always quick to reply and very thorough with their answers. They were easy to understand and communicate with and genuinely wanted to help, not just answer phones and emails because it is their job. Good people.

Personally, I have only called our internal IT team about needing changes to permissions, not McAfee itself, but our IT team can make the changes though it seems to take them longer than I would think it needs to take. As someone who administers a different program, with different permissions, I would feel they should be able to make the exceptions faster and easier.

Alternatives Considered

Bitdefender GravityZone

We have used McAfee Endpoint Security in the past - a low, cost-effective version. We did not find this effective as some computers were protected and others were not. There was also not a centralized log in that we could go in to monitor devices and see how effective it was at protecting. Overall, we wanted something more consistent and dependable.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

Zscaler Internet Access is lighter and easier to customize for smaller groups than McAfee Advanced Threat Defense. Personally, I have never called customer support for either product but I have heard that Zscaler has better, more responsive customer service as well. Both have an automatic launch upon boot-up feature and both block threats well.

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.
