Bucharest, Romania, 2012/09/05 - Bitdefender, an award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, announced that Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) is now available as Security-as-a-Service on AWS Marketplace - Bitdefender.com.
For customers seeking a flexible licensing model, the new service allows organizations to choose security licensing based on administrative and financial requirements – on-demand per hour utility based monthly subscription.
“With other security solutions, many organizations must deal with rigid licensing models that seldom allow horizontal scalability and policy changes based on the needs of the business,” said Robert Krauss, Director Enterprise Sales and Alliances, North America, Bitdefender. “Security for Virtualized Environments offered as Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) on AWS Marketplace was developed to extend the benefits of the cloud – giving organizations security how they want it and when they need it. With our licensing model, organizations have uncomplicated and adaptable security solutions, in terms of administration and scalability, and like a utility, businesses pay for it as they need it.”
“Security is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, and security solutions in the cloud need to align with advantages the cloud brings – solutions based on the specific requirements of the organization,” said Gavin Hill, Director of Cloud and Virtualization, Bitdefender. “SVE as Security-as-a-Service on AWS Marketplace demonstrates that Bitdefender addresses this need and now offers enterprise class security that supports the platform and modality an organization chooses to operate within the cloud.”
Security for Virtualized Environments, delivered as a service, provides integrated, intuitive management and automated deployment for organizations seeking enterprise level security with horizontal scalability. Based on gravity architecture, SVE’s Security-as-a-Service means customers have centralized management and comprehensive visibility, making day-to-day administration of security solutions easier. SVE also provides simple deployment of the silent agent – either with AWS tags or in the AMI – saving significant time, management and administration costs.
Utilizing SVE’s Security-as-a-Service provides better virtual machine instance performance compared to traditional antimalware in the cloud. Considerable performance gains are achieved by offloading much of the antimalware functionality from each virtual machine instance to the SVE Security-as-a-Service. This is accomplished through patent-pending optimization technologies from Bitdefender that streamline the antimalware processes and reduce resource utilization on each virtual machine instance.
Following the launch, on September 6th, Bitdefender will hold Part 1 of a 3-part Webinar series entitled,“Getting the most out of the Cloud”. Accompanying this webinar will be a downloadable white paper, also entitled,“Getting the most out of the cloud”.
