With a worldwide network of 500 million machines, Bitdefender has the largest security delivery infrastructure on the globe. It is 100 million nodes above the nearest competitor. Bitdefender’s Global Protective Network (GPN) performs 11 billion queries per day, and uses reflective models and advanced machine learning algorithms to extract malware patterns, ensuring real-time protection against any threat. The system detects, anticipates and takes action to neutralize even the newest dangers anywhere in the world in as little as 3 seconds. It updates the reputation of apps, email sources and websites, and broadcasts alerts.
Bitdefender is the first security vendor to provide scanning offloading on Security Virtual Appliances since 2011. The scanning process is centralized. Instead of protecting each physical or virtual machine individually, it treats the entire environment as a whole. Centralized security servers handle most antimalware processes after offloading them from each protected physical or virtual machine. Its Photon technology learns usage patterns and software configuration to optimize the use of resources for monitoring applications. It saves computing resources as it focuses on applications found dangerous.
GravityZone’s proactive detection technology employs advanced heuristic methods to detect zero-day threats in real-time. It analyses application behavior in a sandbox before allowing it to run in the OS, and continues to monitor and control it as long as it is active.
Bitdefender’s heuristic antispam technology detects new and unknown spam. To ensure real-time protection, the system compares large volumes of spam messages, and learns to distinguish between unsolicited and legitimate emails. It recognizes new spam by perceiving even the most subtle similarities with older unsolicited messages. Based on Bitdefender’s Global Protective Network, it provides the most powerful defence against spam and phishing attempts.
