8 GravityZone: Deliver Control
GravityZone is hypervisor-agnostic and delivered as a virtual appliance for quick and easy deployment across any combination of virtualization platforms and devices Unlike others, GravityZone provides a unified management console across all security services on physical, virtualized and mobile endpoints. GravityZone is integrated with VMware vCenter, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Active Directory.

9 GravityZone: Key Features
Built-in redundancy and high availability Duplication of roles for the GravityZone appliance : Database, Update server, Web console (Control Center) and / or Communication server Even distribution of scanning traffic with load balancing Integrated management and control Support for VMware vCenter, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Active Directory Enforcing security policies on entire inventory objects including hosts, VM folders or resource pools. Intuitive reporting and monitoring Granular access rights for permission-based access to Control Center Detailed, centralized reporting on the security state across the organization: Malware activity, network and update status Instant access through 12 configurable portlets on the Dashboard

10 GravityZone: Key Benefits
Simplicity and ease of use: Straightforward administration from the GravityZone Control Center, with separate views and specific policy sets for each of the three security services. One security platform across multiple regions: Architected to scale globally and protect organizational units across distributed regions. By operating on any or all four appliance roles that can be partially load balanced, GravityZone can be connected to, and managed centrally from, different local deployments, worldwide. Turnkey deployment from a single virtual appliance: Alleviate administrative overhead with root-level initial setup from CLI and one-time configuration of the scanning appliances, without the need to deploy and configure other components. Flexible modular licensing: Every security service is licensed separately and can be activated whenever necessary to accommodate business growth. Licensing per CPU socket provides even greater flexibility to companies with VDI infrastructures

22 Virtualization market drivers and adoption
Traditional Antimalware Virtualization penetration has surpassed 50% of all server workloads, and continues to grow.

23 THREAT OVERVIEW From new unique malware every day to in just 5 years! Source: AV-Test in Germany.

24 AV signature update frequency
Every 24 hours Every 8 hours Every 8 hours Hourly Even hourly updates present 12,500 possible infections per hour, when AV-Test is Registering +300,000 new threats per day..

25 Conventional Challenges
Boot Latency AV-Storm Storage IO Administration Exclusions vShield Concurrent Updates

Client on every VM Antimalware engines, signatures, cache databases are stored locally and requires constant updates Typically, 750MB – 1GB of disk space and MB of memory when loaded, more memory when scanning

Resource contention Clients on virtual machines compete for host resources with production workloads Exacerbated when clients simultaneously start scan processes on several VMs or download and install updates Massive impact on CPU, memory and I/O activity on the storage

Boot latency and boot time security gaps Scanning engines and signatures loading Recovering from older snapshots/backups Check for updates after loading  This time window leaves the system unsecured and vulnerable to malware attacks

CONCLUSION: It’s better than having no protection at all, BUT: Ridiculously high resource consumption (Memory, CPU, Storage, I/O) Unintelligently duplicating AV operations over and over Highly capably of generating bottlenecks More or less impossible with VDI Time consuming to deploy, manage and monitor!

30 Resource Optimization with GravityZone SVE
Security Server VM BD Tools SCAN ENGINE Potentially available resources

31 Security for Virtualized Environments
Hypervisor agnostic; supports VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, AWS, Oracle, and Red Hat virtualization Comprehensive solution for Windows and Linux servers and VDI machines Integrated management VMware, Citrix, Amazon Web Services Increased server consolidation with centralized antimalware: up to 30% more VMs per physical host Small footprint on the VMs: 60 MB of disk and 30 MB of memory in non-VMware environments

32 Approach to virtualized environments
Two GravityZone key components Enforcement point or endpoint agent What is in each VM, what and how it offloads Management of virtualized environment What manages VM security, how it is integrated Architecture Single point of management

33 Enforcement point: “Agentless” and “Light Agent”
Two approaches available in Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments… VMware vShield Endpoint Proprietary solution, API for security vendor integration Provides remote introspection from virtual appliance (scanning offload) Bitdefender Tools for vShield adds additional functionality Bitdefender Tools End-to-end provided by Bitdefender

34 Comparing “Agentless” versus “Light Agent”
BD Tools vShield Endpoint Integration Hypervisor agnostic ESXi only Windows and Linux VMs Windows only No external dependency Requires vShield Manager Scanning offload across hosts Scanning offload within host Fail-over between VAs Tied to VA on-host; no fail-over In-VM GUI Not native; in-VM GUI provided by Bitdefender On-demand memory/process scanning Not native; provided by Bitdefender In-VM footprint is BD Tools In-VM footprint is vShield file system driver (in VMware Tools) and optional BD Tools for vShield VMs

35 Agentless protection with VMware vSphere
Tightly integrated with VMware vShield Endpoint EPSEC API VMware vCenter integrated management for unified visibility Bitdefender Tools: Extends coverage to non-Windows environments. Provides deep introspection capabilities: file systems, processes and memory

vShield Endpoint SDK Other limitations No monitoring of: Running processes Memory Registry database Max 1 AV engine per host Depends on VMware Tools No cache between hosts No failover possible

vShield Endpoint SDK Allow centralized AV introspection as the VM is accessing local disks. Only works for Windows!

38 Hypervisor-agnostic security for complex datacenters
Universal platform coverage - full support for any hypervisor: VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, Red Hat, KVM, Oracle, or any other virtualization. Protects virtualized desktops and servers running on: Windows & Linux Pre-trained, self-learning cache mechanisms Centralized antimalware for improved performance

39 Load Balancing Deploy as many AV engines per host as you wish
Shared cache between all AV engines Endpoints will automatically be serviced by the AV engine with the fastest response time (allowed by policy)

40 GravityZone SVE Management
GravityZone has superior management for virtualized environments because is: Built from the ground-up for environments of today Delivered as a virtual appliance Integrated with vCenter, XenServer, Active Directory, etc. Scales horizontally – to get more horsepower, add more VMs to a deployment Includes MongoDB; non-relational, open-source database; single database instance can be spread across 1000 nodes

41 GravityZone SVE Management
Virtual appliance Each VA can play one or more role (load balancer, database, management console) to distribute across geographies, scale as much as needed Built-in load distribution, fault tolerance vCenter, XenServer Management integration is key to keep-up with hugely dynamic environments Supports ESXi, Xen, Hyper-V, RedHat, Oracle, etc. Extend to public cloud easily (VPC in AWS, for example)

42 Bitdefender Tools Windows and Linux version
Static installation – requires no updating 50 MB disk space inside each VM Three major components: Gateway, allowing centralized engine to access the system Maximum 15MB memory footprint No CPU load Runs as an unstoppable local service Local tools (uncompress, file move, file deletion, etc. Optional UI, including pop-up notification, policy controlled

43 Optimized scanning technique
Myfile.extension = 25 MB on disk Segments capable of execution, which might contain malicious code = 2.5 MB File areas scanned using Bitdefender technology: 2.5 MB

44 Multi-level caching Unique files and processes are only scanned once, regardless VM or AV engine (SVA) Modified files are rescanned, but only on changed areas Consequence: reduced CPU and I/O activity

45 Login VSI: “Best-performing virtualization security out there”
Server consolidation is key Lowest latency and baseline on virtual desktops

46 GravityZone: Drive Performance

Improved operational efficiency Automated tasks due to integration with VMware vCenter and Citrix XenServer. Turn-key deployment of Security Server virtual appliance. Best performance in VDI environments Lowest impact on applications running in virtualized environments, when compared to other virtualization security solutions. (VSI Login tests)

49 GravityZone SVE Common Questions
Isn’t vShield “agentless”? Great marketing term; really means “no security vendor footprint in-VM” VMware provides file system driver in VMware tools GUI, memory/process scanning layered on top by security vendor Which has fewer components? BD Tools has BD Tools in-VM, GravityZone management vShield integrated version has vShield Manager, VMware Tools, BD Tools for vShield VMs, GravityZone management Are they mutually exclusive? At the VM level, yes; either BD Tools or vShield + BD Tools for vShield VMs At the management level (deployment level), no
