With a worldwide network of 500 million machines, Bitdefender has the largest security delivery infrastructure on the globe. It is 100 million nodes above the nearest competitor.
Bitdefender’s Global Protective Network (GPN) performs 7 billion queries per day, and uses reflective models and advanced machine learning algorithms to extract malware patterns, ensuring real-time protection against any threat. The system detects, anticipates and takes action to neutralize even the newest dangers anywhere in the world in as little as 3 seconds. It updates the reputation of apps, email sources and websites, and broadcasts alerts.
Bitdefender is the first security vendor to provide scanning offloading on Security Virtual Appliances since 2011. The scanning process is centralized. Instead of protecting each physical or virtual machine individually, it treats the entire environment as a whole. Their centralized security servers handle most anti-malware processes after offloading them from each protected physical or virtual machine.
