About Bitdefender GravityZone
Bitdefender GravityZone is a solution designed to secure mobile device management (MDM) in enterprise companies. It does not offer a way to distribute or update apps but rather, it focuses on the security challenges that bring your own device (BYOD) policies create for company network security. Their GravityZone suite consists of three components – Security for Virtualized Environments, Security of Mobile Devices, and Security for Endpoints.
Bitdefender GravityZone’s security for b=mobile devices is designed to minimize IT overhead and allow users to start immediately enforcing security policies on mobile devices, without additional infrastructure. It has the number one ranked anti-malware technology for Windows and Android, which prevents the spread of infected files within the system. This MDM solution also prevents employees from attaching ‘jailbroken’ or ‘rooted’ devices to the system, as these can often pose a significant security risk. It can also help locate a lost or stolen device to aid in recovery, or simply wipe the device remotely to lessen the risk of data leakage. The software also allows administrators to enforce standard security measures across all devices, such as requiring passcodes or locking the screen after a certain number of minutes.
With more than 10 billion personal mobile devices expected to be in use by 2020, it is more important than ever for companies to start harnessing the power of BYOD. Companies like the UK’s Smiths News and BLDD Architects understand this and have started trusting Bitdefender to secure its own virtual environments.
