Overall Satisfaction with Bitdefender GravityZone

We are managing MSPs with thousands of corporate end customers, and are also using it in house. We give trainings and demos on it and sell support services with it.
  • Easy to deploy and manage.
  • Several layers of protection.
  • Valuable add on packages such as encryption, patch management and EDR.
  • Mobile Device Management is missing for cloud users.
  • Reports should be more flexible/self-creat[ing].
  • Executive summary should be able to be printed.
  • Tech support response is too slow.
  • No infections in the last six years have meant no down time.
  • Server security has helped to stay more productive.
  • Quick and easy deployment for new systems.
  • Easy interface requires less time of IT staff.
The full disk encryption and patch management in the same console have especially lead to much less work load for IT staff. Again the only downfall is the lack of MDM to manage all mobile devices as well.
We use all protection layers including the offloading to the scan server. In todays cyber security threat landscape, layered security has become the status quo. The lowest hanging fruit is the most likely to get infected. So having layers to avoid the latest threats is essential.
Detection of the others is more basic and less layered. Also, the lack of add-on modules, especially EDR, is a deal breaker. Most of all, the centralized management with a cloud console is lacking and therefore hardware is required.
The responses are good, but the turn around is way too slow. Sometimes it takes more than 24 hours for a response and in most cases they always ask for a support collector to be run. As mission critical as threat defense [is] in today's world, a more responsive support would be more desirable.

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.

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.
