Bitdefender GravityZone product overview
Bitdefender GravityZone lets organizations enable dedicated protection for datacenters, physical endpoints, mobile devices, and Exchange mailboxes with the flexibility to choose which security services to deploy. It defends businesses and datacenters with minimal resource requirements, enhancing the user experience and consolidation ratios. Delivered as a virtual appliance, the GravityZone Control Center console scales up to protect any number of endpoints, with redundancy and high availability built in.
Bitdefender engineered the complexity out of security to provide risk reduction without increasing staff or buying tools and services from multiple vendors. GravityZone incorporates the key security functions required to refine cyber-resilience: Risk Assessment & Mitigation, Threat Prevention, Advanced Attacks Detection, and Security Incident Response. It manages all services seamlessly from the on-premise GravityZone Control Center console. GravityZone works across endpoints and hybrid workloads with high-efficacy analytics, multiple security functions, and simple administration.
Pros of Bitdefender GravityZone
- It brings enhanced threat detection with comprehensive search capabilities for specific indicators of compromise (IoCs), MITRE ATT&CK techniques, and other artifacts to discover early-stage attacks.
- Its organizational-level incident visualizations enable IT security to respond efficiently, limit the lateral spread, and stop ongoing attacks.

Breakdown of core features
Endpoint and human risk assessment
GravityZone offers advanced endpoint and human risk assessment analytics, dashboards, and reporting that enable organizations to minimize potential cybersecurity risks. Its integrated Endpoint Risk Analytics (ERA) solution gives better visibility and automated remediation tools required to address risks. As an integrated risk management service, in addition to its prevention and EDR capabilities, the software reduces the attack surface, simplifies implementation and management complexity, and ensures deep-dive risk visibility and mitigation, all through a common platform and single console.
The platform empowers organizations to improve vulnerability management with Risk Analytics and Patch Management to help harden defenses and decrease the attack surface. GravityZone’s Vulnerability Management feature has automated risk prioritization that provides critical insights about user misconduct, such as flouted password policies or high malware detection count. It generates key risk factors to be evaluated in an integrated and holistic manner. Moreover, its Patch Management allows security teams to identify risks and vulnerabilities.
GravityZone stops ransomware in its tracks by blocking attacks and intercepting attempts to encrypt sensitive data before they execute. The solution provides multiple layers of protection from ransomware, analyzing and intercepting malicious software on access and on-execution.
It prevents malware from encrypting personal or sensitive data, keeping the organization safe. GravityZone also proactively protects users by automatically creating a backup of target files that restore after the malware is blocked. Its ransomware mitigation provides protection against all common ransomware attack vectors. Additionally, the endpoint security correlates multiple indicators of attack and compromise with malicious activity observed on the system and the network, facilitating quick and accurate incident response that reduces attacker dwell time and facilitates fast file recovery from ransomware.
Application Control adds a critical layer for IT controls, preventing malware and zero-day attacks and increasing security without impacting productivity. This feature enforces flexible application whitelisting policies that identify and prevent the installation and execution of unwanted, untrusted, or malicious applications.
