Security for Virtualized Environments by Bitdefender Now Available on AWS Marketplace

Bitdefender Joins Amazon Web Services Marketplace to Give Customers Easy Access to Virtualization Security

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA and LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 04/24/12 -- Stand A90 Infosecurity Europe - Bitdefender, an award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, today announced that Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) is now available on AWS Marketplace, an online store that makes it easy for customers to find, compare, and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses. The value and functionality that Security for Virtualized Environments provides in a datacenter is now fully available in the cloud. The flexibility of Bitdefender SVE means that AWS Marketplace customers have a comprehensive and centrally managed security solution that provides added protection for virtual machines running Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments utilizes AWS APIs to deliver intuitive centralized management of both Windows and Linux systems. Organizations that use the cloud or a combination of cloud and virtualized datacenters can reduce the financial, logistical and performance costs associated with traditional security approaches.

By incorporating Bitdefender SVE into the overall security posture, enterprises ranging from large-scale deployments to a handful of virtual machines now have additional protection on all major platforms and operating systems running on the Amazon Web Services cloud.

"AWS Marketplace is providing a computing model that works for organizations of all sizes throughout the world. Becoming a member of the AWS Marketplace eco-system is a proud moment for us, as there is now an enterprise-level choice of security for public and private cloud users, no matter what size," said Robert Krauss, Director Enterprise Sales and Alliances, North America, Bitdefender. "Organizations run a variety of platforms both in the cloud and potentially in datacenters concurrently, and need to run a single comprehensive security solution. Security for Virtualized Environments included in AWS Marketplace means that organizations can benefit from the same advantages as if they were using SVE in their traditional datacenter."

With Security for Virtualized Environments by Bitdefender, AWS Marketplace customers have the significant advantages of centralized scanning and management. By using Bitdefender on Amazon Web Services, customers can effectively manage their instances' security, apply group policies and view logs for each AWS region from within one central console. SVE de-duplicates and centralizes much of the scanning functionality at a single, dedicated virtual appliance drastically improving performance. This approach greatly increases scanning performance and reduces Anti-Malware resource consumption within the protected instance, providing increased cost savings.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
