The foundation of business security

The security requirements for any company, no matter how large or small, should be the same. While protecting your company’s intellectual property and securing customer data are good business practices, the impact of any virus outbreak greatly affects the companys operational efficiency and can incur lost productivity from the workforce.

This loss of productivity can cripple a small company and at best, hamper the companys growth. The answer to data loss and lost productivity from malicious malware is proactive protection.

Companies can effectively protect their business clients from attack by using Bitdefenders ability to detect and prevent known and zero-day threats, ensure compliance to corporate security policies and manage them effectively with fewer IT resources.

Technology

Endpoint threat protection and management

Bitdefenders award-winning scan engines have been recognized by leading certification bodies, – including ICSA Labs, Virus Bulletin, and West Coast Labs – for their unmatched proactive antimalware protection. Bitdefender Client Security provides multiple levels of advanced protection;

bitdefender-antivirus-clientsecurity

Bitdefender Client Security offers multiple levels of protection and client management functionality.

Bitdefender  Client Security uses multiple layers of technology to protect the endpoint,  including;

  • Antivirus  In addition to signature based  detection, Bitdefender provides heuristic detection that emulates a virtual  computer-within-a-computer, checking all files and code for malicious behavior.  This technique produces fewer false positives and significantly higher  detection rates for zero-day and unknown threats.
  • Antispam  – Using constantly updated  blacklists and whitelists of known Spam sites, Bayesian learning provides  another layer of detection that adapts to the changes made by Spammers to  bypass static Spam filters.
  • Antispyware  - Bitdefender Client  Security detects and prevents known spyware and adware by using five different  filtering methods to monitor the registry for modifications, file scanning,  cookie control, URL filtering and content inspection to prevent outbound data  leakage.
  • Antiphishing  – While considered more of  personal threat than a corporate threat; phishing sites can also harvesting information  from your companys employees. Using a combination of constantly updated  blacklists and whitelists, Bitdefender prevents users from known accessing  phishing sites and preventing compromise.
  • Content  Filtering – Content  filtering allows for the detection of predefined information such as credit  card or account information, report names, client databases, etc. from passing  outside the companys control.
  • Firewall  – When users roam or work  remotely using unsecured wireless networks, they are no longer protected by the  companys perimeter firewall. Granular settings such as Internet blocking and  access by IP address, application, port or protocol allows flexible  configuration options while maintaining maximum security against inbound and  outbound threats.

Automatic updates

Hourly updates are provided for new virus definitions and new product updates can be deployed during a scheduled maintenance window, ensuring   your Bitdefender Client Security deployment is current with the very latest threat protection – without disrupting your network.
