Bitdefender Launches High Performance Virtualization Security for MSPs

Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity technology company protecting 500 million users worldwide, today announced its Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) is now available for MSPs. Expressly designed to help service providers protect their customers' virtual desktops and servers without slowing performance or affecting users, it delivers full-fledged, multi-layered defense, including machine learning, anti-exploit and continuous process monitoring, all within a lightweight footprint.

To ensure maximum performance and protection, Bitdefender's SVE for MSPs offers a highly resilient virtual machine (VM) security architecture that offloads scanning to hardened, virtual appliances with load balancing and failover capabilities. Available as a monthly-billed service, it addresses challenges related to poor performance and user experience, inefficient security management, VM security and compliance gaps, which MSPs have been struggling with for years.

SVE's centralized scanning and caching dramatically improves application response times, VM density and user experience. This makes the offering essential for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) or Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) managing virtual servers or desktops for their customers. By offloading scanning to dedicated virtual security appliances, acting together with proprietary local and central caching mechanisms, this virtual appliance eliminates the need for traditional resource-intensive security agents on each VM, improving application response times and user experience.

Bitdefender's MSP Security Suite, of which SVE is a part of, delivers best protection, best performance for physical, virtual and cloud workloads. This month, Bitdefender's endpoint protection won Best Protection and Best Performance awards by world-renowned independent analysis and testing firm AV-TEST. This annual award is given for consistently providing the highest levels of protection and performance throughout a year of rigorous testing sessions.

"Bitdefender's continued technological leadership serves as a security standard that MSPs can't afford to overlook, when offering best-in-class protection for their clients," said Jose Lopez, Bitdefender's VP of Global Sales, Service Providers and Technology Licensing. "Bitdefender's SVE delivers multiple layers of protection through its centralized scanning, enabling both efficient security management and minimum performance impact."

As part of the Bitdefender MSP security suite, SVE can be administered from the same multi-tenant Bitdefender cloud console that MSPs use today. This can also be a significant advantage for cloud service providers.
