BitDefender Offers New Cloud-Based Endpoint Security Service

Security firm BitDefender has come out with a new cloud-based endpoint security service. Called Cloud Security for Endpoints, it is available now. You can centrally manage a variety of clients across different locations, provided you have an Internet connection to all of them most of the time.

We last wrote about them earlier this summer, covering their Total Security 2012 product. and last covered cloud-based endpoint tools in August when we wrote about Digital Persona.

Panda, McAfee and others have had cloud-based security tools for some time, and ForeScout is getting into this market with their announcement today for managed service providers.

Like many cloud-based security tools, it is only for Windows desktops and servers, and downloads an agent to each desktop, so it isn’t completely cloud-based. A central Web-based management console is used to keep track of all of your clients. And while less than $4 a user per month doesn’t sound like much, it is about the same price as a traditional “thick AV client” like Norton or McAfee. The advantage is that it is easy to protect new desktops with BitDefender’s solution.
