Bucharest, Romania, 2016/02/09 - Bitdefender has announced the release of Bitdefender Security for LabTech, as well as participation in ConnectWise’s official vendor program, Invent, to extend the reach and depth of its world-leading security solutions for MSPs - ConnectWise.com.
Bitdefender, a leading Internet security technology company protecting 500 million users worldwide, has announced the release of Bitdefender Security for LabTech, as well as participation in ConnectWise’s official vendor program, Invent, to extend the reach and depth of its world-leading security solutions for MSPs.
Bitdefender Security for LabTech is fully integrated with ConnectWise’s RMM solution LabTech. The integration is designed so that that all antivirus and antimalware security tasks, including deployment, policy setting and security monitoring are managed directly from the LabTech console. This integration effort eliminates the need for a security server and the time and effort of using a separate security console.
“We’re very excited to have Bitdefender join our robust library of integrators,” said Jeannine Edwards, Director, ConnectWise Platform. “We’re particularly thrilled about their commitment to their integration via the official ConnectWise vendor program, Invent. Bitdefender joins an elite group of ConnectWise integrators who’ve made an investment into collaborating on the best integration experience for mutual partners.”
Bitdefender Security for MSPs outperforms all other security solutions, as proven by testing results from the leading independent international security analysts. In 2015 and 2014, Bitdefender’s business protection ranked first for performance in independent testing by AV-TEST and won best zero-day detection by AV-Comparatives, leading the IT security industry for detection of new threats.
Brian Kingsley, Director of Technical Services at Marathon Consulting said,“When we switched to Bitdefender, we immediately found hundreds of infections that our previous antivirus software had not detected. Because we manage over 80 customers with 1,700 endpoints, we needed a stronger antivirus/antimalware that could handle Cryptolocker and other advanced threats. It also had to be tightly integrated with LabTech, light on the network and easy to manage. Bitdefender’s Security Plug-in for LabTech does it all and is a great fit for our MSP operations”
The ConnectWise integration intiative further expands Bitdefender’s industry leading commitment to integration with MSP technology partners including Kaseya, N-Able, Naverisk and MaxFocus.
“In recent years, Bitdefender has pushed heavily into the MSP market and has picked up strong momentum due to its expansive offering and extremely high quality security” said Jose Lopez, Bitdefender Director of Sales for Service Providers. “Now, users of LabTech can take advantage of Bitdefender’s industry leading security, ease of use and versatility.”
The announcement comes after Bitdefender has expanded its award-winning partner program, to provide their MSPs with world class support including MSP webinars, sales and technical training, dynamic monthly licensing and more.
