Bitdefender Unveils Cloud Security Suite for Managed Service Providers


Bitdefender is promoting a Cloud Security Suite to help MSPs address patch management, cloud sandbox, detection and response services to customers, according to a prepared statement.

Cloud Security for MSP includes the following security products:

  • Advanced Threat Security: Protects against fileless, PowerShell and various script attacks and delivers threat context and visibility.
  • Endpoint Detection and Response: Correlates information from security sensors, looks for anomalous behaviors and offers visibility into indicators of compromise (IOCs) and one-click threat investigation and incident response workflows.
  • Patch Management: Automatically applies patches both on-site and at remote locations.

Cloud Security for MSP is available with monthly usage-based licensing, and MSPs can deliver Cloud Security for MSP products via Bitdefender's multi-tenant cloud console.

Bitdefender Unveils SVE for MSPs

In addition to Cloud Security for MSP, Bitdefender in April announced Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE), a virtual machine (VM) security architecture that enables MSPs to offload scanning to hardened, virtual appliances with load balancing and failover capabilities.

SVE for MSPs provides scanning and caching to improve application response times and VM density, according to Bitdefender. By doing so, SVE for MSPs addresses challenges related to poor performance and user experience, inefficient security management and VM security and compliance gaps.
