Bitdefender, a security solution provider, brings its GravityZone Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) to VMware NSX-T Data Center. VMware NSX-T Data Center users can use the agent-less security solution thanks to its interoperability.

Data center environments are becoming increasingly heterogeneous, and the percentage of workloads placed in public cloud environments continues to increase, says Bitdefender. Therefore, software-defined networking (SDN) solutions need to be extended to provide the full spectrum of network and security services native to these environments.

NSX-T Data Center

VMware developed the NSX-T Data Center for this purpose. This solution supports (multi)cloud environments such as AWS, Azure and VMware Cloud within AWS. In addition, the solution supports various hypervisors such as VMware vSphere and KVM, and container environments such as Docker and Kubernetes.

“Customers deploying hybrid clouds using VMware NSX need an extremely broad ecosystem of solutions that meet their unique security needs,” said Umesh Mahajan, senior vice president of VMware’s R&D, Networking & Security Business Unit. Bitdefender needs to provide that solution. “It uses the ubiquitous connectivity of VMware NSX to provide layered security wherever applications need it.”

Agent less security

Bitdefender GravityZone SVE is a VMware Ready solution for agentless security. According to the company itself, it provides more effective protection against advanced threats with HyperDetect. This is a technology that provides adjustable machine learning technology. It also offers greater operational efficiency and flexibility through native integration with NSX and VMware vCenter, and higher returns on infrastructure investments through more powerful consolidation and faster performance.

Bitdefender’s vice president, Datacenter & Network Security Products Gavin Hill, said the company is the only vendor that “protects organizations from advanced cyber threats with configurable machine learning technology. “We value our partnership with VMware, and their like-minded commitment to customer service and innovation.”
