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.

Sophos Central Device Encryption (formerly SafeGuard)

From my experience Sophos could give us a proper email security solution at that time. However once the requirements of the security gets bigger such as machine learning, at that time we do not find it in Sophos. Despite all, we are really satisfied with the Sophos email security solution that we use.

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.

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.

Sophos Central Device Encryption (formerly SafeGuard)

  • It's ride on the Microsoft BIT Locker utility
  • In the event of disk response the challenge process is tedious
  • Incompatibility issues with some known branded laptops
  • The disk encryption time is very high

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.

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.

At that time, we chose Sophos based on the reputation and our partnership with our partner. And in general Sophos could give us more benefit than other competitors with the similar solution. However we do not feel comfortable to disclose information about comparison with other solutions. Despite that, we think Sophos could deliver our requirements very well with the cost that were reasonable for us.

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.
