Bitdefender strikes Datto MSP alliance

Security vendor Bitdefender has integrated its GravityZone MSP security suite with Datto RMM, the scalable cloud remote monitoring and management solution for managed service providers. The move allows MSPs using Datto RMM to automate and accelerate installation of Bitdefender AV, anti-malware and advanced endpoint layers through a unified OS-agnostic kit.

With minimal configuration effort, MSPs can install on customers’ devices essential security layers such as anti-malware, content control, email security and patch management, as well as advanced technologies such as tunable machine learning, sandbox and EDR. Bitdefender’s layered security lets MSPs prevent, detect and respond to new types of ransomware, unknown threats, fileless attacks and targeted attacks.

The integration between Datto RMM and Bitdefender enables MSPs to auto-detect the OS type, whether Windows, Mac or Linux, then to automatically deploy the Bitdefender agent from a single component. It also allows them to monitor the installation status and update status.

“Our MSP partners told us they need a reliable, proven security solution that matches their business model and integrates with their daily routines and workflows,” said Alina Draganescu, senior director of security for MSPs and SMBs at Bitdefender.

“So we built the integration with Datto RMM, which uses a unified, agnostic installation kit that works across multiple operating systems. Saving time through automatic deployment and relying on the software to do the work for you is important when you have diverse infrastructures with systems running on Windows, Linux or Mac.”

Aaron Dun, VP of product and growth marketing at Datto, said: “With this integration, our MSP partners using Datto RMM are now able to quickly deploy the Bitdefender Cloud Security agent and view the security status of an endpoint from within their Datto RMM interface, eliminating the need to transition from platform to platform.

“We’re dedicated to ensuring our MSP partners have seamless integrations with the products they use every day to create efficiencies, and we welcome Bitdefender to our Datto Developer Program.”
