One of the greatest challenges for any IT department is the ability to maintain controland visibility into the company's security posture. Unfortunately, many organizations do not have a dedicated resource that can develop and manage a network security strategy due to the costs involved. Small and medium businesses (SMB's) are even further limited by strict budget requirements and IT tasks are often fulfilled by someone in a dual role. This lack of business prioritization makes the implementation of an effective security program difficult to achieve within most SMB's. As a company grows, the addition of new employees, systems, and applications to support new business initiatives also increases the number of overall attack vectors used by malware to infiltrate a company's network. To be proactive, IT departments must put controls in place to limit the impact caused by unauthorized use of rogue applications, malicious code and Internet resources - such as Web 2.0 applications – that further expose the organization to attack.
Antivirus deployed on a company's laptops and workstations will provide the foundation of a good security policy, but it is no longer enough to protect your workforce from today's malicious threats. Threats are constantly evolving to circumvent the security solutions put in place and can spread rapidly when not checked by a compensating control. Therefore, BitDefender's antimalware solutions have evolved beyond basic virus detection and prevention to provide a solution that can proactively install protection on unmanaged workstations and servers, remotely identify and remove unauthorized application and configure system settings – helping to minimize the effects of malware propagation throughout the network.
BitDefender's Centralized Management Console allows companies to implement a unified management platform for remote installation, configuration and reporting of all BitDefender Clients, Server and Gateway products deployed throughout the network. BitDefender's Centralized Management includes:
● Network-wide visibility for IT administrators into all malware related incidents
● Proactive audits for hardware and software assets within the network
● Remote configuration and management of client and server system settings
●Malware related incident reports to identify infection rates and trends
● Tools to measure the effectiveness of an organization's antimalware security program
