Bitdefender, a Romanian cybersecurity and antivirus software provider, has integrated security risk analytics capabilities into its GravityZone endpoint security solution.

GravityZone security risk analytics ensure organizations can discover, prioritize and remediate risks from endpoint software misconfigurations, according to Bitdefender. In doing so, they help organizations reduce endpoint attack surfaces and safeguard systems against data breaches.

Security analytics are now available to existing GravityZone customers and for purchase in all GravityZone products.

Bitdefender Introduces MSP Program

The GravityZone security analytics announcement comes after Bitdefender last month unveiled a Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program to complement its Partner Advantage Network Program (PAN), Reselling Channel Program and Integrated Channel Program.

Bitdefender's MSP program provides access to marketing development funds, operational and business support and the company's team of technical account managers. It includes three service levels and enables MSPs to incorporate various Bitdefender security offerings into their portfolios.

Global Security Analytics Market Projected to Grow

MSSPs and MSPs that offer security analytics to their customers could capitalize on a global security analytics market that is projected to grow.

Global security analytics market revenues are expected to increase from $2 billion in 2015 to $8 billion by 2023, industry analyst Global Market Insights stated. Key factors that could drive the global security analytics market's growth include the rising number of cyber threats and increasing demand for always-on, always-connected security solutions.
