"We are pleased that the Bitdefender GravityZone qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure. This signifies to customers that GravityZone can be deployed in production environments with confidence and can speed time to value within customer environments," said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware.
Using GravityZone with VMware NSX, organizations can take software-defined data center security one step further by enabling agentless scanning for guest virtual machines (VMs) via NSX guest introspection. This can help eliminate the overhead induced by running separate instances of the agent in each VM, and offers increased resilience against advanced persistent attacks targeting the security solution itself. This provides enterprise customers with a new and proactive approach for securing their data centers and network virtualization environments from advanced threats and persistent attacks.
