With organisations rapidly taking advantage of major technological trends such as cloud computing and mobility, it is vital security keeps pace.
The security perimeters that traditionally protected businesses have been stretched thin by the growth of flexible working and bring you own device. Modern business are also utilising virtualised environments, often outside that company perimeter, to support new ways of working.
These developments cannot be ignored by security professionals. When it comes to virtualised infrastructures, however, you don’t see the same level of protection being applied as you do with physical servers and devices.

If a physical server has 20 virtualised machines with 20 security products running anti-virus, this will have an impact. As performance is already an issue in virtual environments, you can see why this might be unpopular. That’s why Bitdefender developed GravityZone Enterprise Security, which can manage all those 20 virtual machines through one appliance. This uses less resources, and we take great pride in the fact that it offers 25% better performance than any other vendor.
