Bitdefender launched new endpoint defense capabilities for its GravityZone MSP platform. New features are designed to help managed service provider organizations to offer enhanced endpoint protection and detection services by identifying and stopping network-based and fileless attacks, exploits and malicious behaviors before they reach endpoint resources. Incident response for security operations is now simplified offering better guidance to streamline processes.
Backed by the power of Bitdefender’s threat intelligence, the new capabilities of GravityZone enables managed services providers to detect attacks earlier in the kill chain, increasing protection of their customers. For instance, with the recent BlueKeep related outbreaks, Bitdefender solutions with this update are able to block the attacks prior to exploit, before ransomware or other payloads can be dropped onto the system. Bitdefender also announces GravityZone Email Security, which offers advanced protection against the rapidly growing incidence of business email compromise and executive impersonation attacks.
“Over the last 3 months, we noticed an increasing frequency of targeted attacks, ranging from brute force attacks to spear phishing, executive impersonation and credential compromise. These recent changes in the threat landscape put even more pressure on Service Providers which are already expected to protect their small and medium business customers against breaches and business disruption,” said Alina Draganescu, Senior Director, Security for MSP and SMB at Bitdefender. “With GravityZone’s proven integrated technologies and capability to identify suspicious activities across endpoints, servers and email, in the early stages of attack attempts, Managed Service Providers can provide high accuracy and efficient protection, while automating and streamlining incident response. In addition, they can offer now more value-added services and boost revenues by managing cloud email security for their small and medium business partners”
