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.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
What can I say? Bitdefender GravityZone does its job and it does it well. It is very light on its resource footprint and does a great job of stopping threats. We are a MSP and use this product both internally and for our entire client base. We had a new client come to us because they were compromised via Webroot. We took an image of their hard drive, ran it through Bitdefender, and it caught what Webroot didn't.
With over 100 workstations (including laptop for road warriors) and +100 servers, it is very nice that the product Bitdefender GravityZone is very easy to manage using the online central management console, where you can set every detail of the different components of the product. Also, the reports you can use are clear and very helpful.
Our in-house management is quite easy. Those computers I can do hands-on. It is when I need to depend on the cloud to manage a computer that is having issues that can be more of a challenge.
We use the web-based version to push down operating system updates, antivirus, and enforce encryption policies for our laptops. Bitdefender GravityZone doesn't work well for Android devices. I also feel that the web filtering platform of Bitdefender GravityZone could use some more work. Currently it does a great job at web filtering; however, I haven't been able to deep dive into it yet and am not sure how granular it can get when it comes to specific users being allowed to access certain domains.
It just works. I have seen multiple viruses and malware get past other antivirus software like TrendMicro, Webroot, and Kaspersky. Bitdefender GravityZone always catches what others miss. It has a very light footprint when it comes to system resources. The centralized management console is nice, but I prefer the console before they redesigned the UI.
If you have a need to protect your internal systems or those of a client, and everyone should have this need, Bitdefender [GravityZone] is the AntiVirus of choice. It runs silently and doesn't kill your system resources. It catches every single threat thrown its way. We sleep better at night knowing that Bitdefender [GravityZone] is keeping us and our clients safe.
Bitdefender GravityZone is well suited for all departments throughout an organization. It doesn't just target one user's needs. It picks up threats that other antivirus solutions do not. It has antivirus and antimalware features in a single piece of software with a very small footprint on the systems it is installed on.
We have used multiple antivirus products in the past and none even come close to comparing to Bitdefender GravityZone. Bitdefender has a very small footprint when it comes to system resources and it catches any threat thrown at it with very few false positives.
SMB market is where this product will really be at home. It has the right amount of enterprise features to be useful, such as EDR, patch management, and risk analysis. However for larger enterprise sites this may not be ideal as the reporting and dashboards are lacking.
I like it and have referred it to several colleagues across the industry.
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.
The patch management aspect as well as the one license model have been the saving grace for us. I no longer have to pick and choose various licenses to install on a new machine and everything is viewable from one place. It was easy to install, but there are still features that I haven't tried because I haven't had the time to look at how to do it.
It is perfect for companies between 10-1000 seats. The lack of MDM makes it challenging in Enterprise environments where UEM is important. Also would it be nice to have a couple of RMM functionalities such as remote desktop and deployment of other software through it.
When you need to be able to monitor the anti-virus/malware situation on all computers including remote systems and do not want users to have the ability to change or modify these settings, GravityZone is perfect for this. Certainly focused on IT professionals, so the learning curve can be a bit difficult to figure out.
It is well suited for small to mid-sized companies. It helps in centrally managing the security for all of your devices. I would recommend it to other companies.
At my previous organization, we rolled out Bitdefender to a 200+ user agency. In my current position, we have 50 users, so Bitdefender works well across smaller and mid-size organizations.
Bitdefender GravityZone is well suited for any company of any size. The product scales well and seems very solid. It is feature rich and just works with out a lot of fooling around. We have not found any major issues with using this software yet. We are very pleased with our choice.
Bitdefender GravityZone is definitely a Windows-centric system, and the web UI doesn't make a whole lot of sense. While the system does indeed do what it needs to, it can be done better and use fewer resources. On Macs, it has become a performance-degrading hurdle for our engineers.
Bitdefender is suited for all environments. If you are a small office or home user, it would probably be best to stick with residential version of antivirus. Bitdefender works great for MSPs as it integrates with most PSAs. IT department will love the deployment options.
We create access policies according to the contributions of employees. For example, for our service team, the rules are stricter for access to sites and equipment resources, while for consultants, who are external, there is less restricted access. GravityZone has some difficulty updating clients outside the corporate network. This prevents employees from having client updates.
Bitdefender GravityZone is great for companies that need to monitor and manage multiple companies and their computers. The website is very easy to use.
I think it's best suited for providing full-service network security services to residential customers. For business customers, there are some features its missing to be able to provide everything they could need.
Works great across multiple platforms and clients but needs some work when it comes to resource utilization on old equipment.
