Optimized to minimize resource consumption

Optimized detection and scanning technology inside Cloud Security for Endpoints by Bitdefender Minimizes the system’s memory footprint. Together with the silent security philosophy, this ensures that business data and systems are protected without users noticing or taking any action. The impact of Cloud Security for Endpoints on network traffic is also minimized as new product or signature updates can be propagated with small, incremental updates and optimized local update distribution options are available.

Advanced protection through proactive detection

Bitdefender provides organizations with multiple levels of advanced protection: Antivirus, Antispyware, Anti-Phishing, Trojan / Rootkit detection and a fully featured two-way personal Firewall with intrusion detection. Cloud Security for Endpoints also includes an innovative and proactive detection technology called Bitdefender Active Virus Control which leverages advanced heuristic methods to detect new potential threats in real time. Unlike typical heuristic technologies which are limited to checking files when they are accessed or first started, Active Virus Control monitors all application activity throughout the lifecycle of the application processes. Productivity and protection are enhanced through centralized configurable security policies that can be used to remotely control user access to local applications, block access to certain websites or restrict Internet access within certain time intervals.

First, a traditional scanning method is employed where scanned content is matched against the signature database. The signature database contains byte patterns specific to known threats and is regularly updated by Bitdefender. This scanning method is effective against confirmed threats that have been researched and documented. However, no matter how promptly the signature database is updated, there is always a vulnerability window between the time when a new threat is discovered and when a fix is released.

Against brand-new, undocumented threats, a second layer of protection is provided by B-HAVE, Bitdefender's heuristic engine. Heuristic algorithms detect malware based on behavioral characteristics. B-HAVE runs suspected malware in a virtual environment to test its impact on the system and ensure it poses no threat. If a threat is detected, the program is prevented from running.

For threats that elude even the heuristic engine, a third layer of protection is present in the form of Active Virus Control (AVC). Active Virus Control continuously monitors running processes and grades suspicious behaviors such as attempts to: disguise the type of process, execute code in another process's space (hijack process memory for privilege escalation), replicate, drop files, hide from process enumeration applications, etc. Each suspicious behavior raises the process rating. When a threshold is reached, an alarm is triggered.

Cloud Security for Endpoints protects against several types of malware, including:

Viruses

Viruses - A computer virus is a computer program that self-replicates when executed, often while being concealed inside legitimate executable files, boot records, script files, document macros, etc. Besides self-replication, many viruses also carry a payload, meaning they also perform malicious actions on the host system like: destroying or corrupting data, displaying insulting or annoying messages, altering normal application behavior, installing trojans or spyware, etc. Worms - Computer worms are also self-replicating computer programs that may carry malicious payloads. They differ from viruses in that they are standalone computer programs and have the ability to spread automatically, usually via computer networks.

Trojans

Trojans - Trojans are computer programs that expose the host system to attackers, hence the name. Typical payloads include: opening backdoors (methods of bypassing authentication, stealing data, hijacking the system for spamming or Denial of Service attacks, spying on the user, etc. Unlike viruses and worms, trojans don't self-replicate.

Spyware

Spyware - Spyware designates computer programs that covertly collect information about the user and transmit it to a third party. Spyware is often distributed as part of desirable software such as free utilities which perform spying activities on their users in addition to their advertised purpose.

Adware

Adware programs are software packages that display unsolicited advertising in the form of pop-ups, or by corrupting the graphical user interface of various applications, notably web browsers. Like spyware, they are often bundled with other types of more or less useful software.

Keyloggers

Keyloggers monitor the user's keyboard key presses. Although there are legitimate applications for keyloggers, they are often used by hackers to extract confidential information such as credentials, credit card numbers, addresses, etc. They are usually distributed through a trojan or virus.

Rootkits

Rootkits - Rootkits are system drivers which modify the operating system's behaviour for various purposes. Just like keyloggers, they may have beneficial functionalities, but are also frequently used for harmful actions such as: concealing malicious software, preventing malware disinfection, enabling privilege escalation for unauthorized users, opening backdoors, etc. Because they corrupt the operating system's low level functions, once installed, rootkits are notoriously difficult to detect and remove.

Anti-Phishing

The Anti-Phishing module provides warnings and protection against website forgery/spoofing and against Internet frauds. The Anti-Phishing module has three components:

Anti-Phishing protection automatically blocks known phishing (website forgery/spoofing) web pages to prevent users from inadvertently disclosing private or confidential information to online fraudsters. In addition to website forgery, other types of Internet frauds may be suppressed such as: purchase frauds, get-rich-quick scams, Internet marketing frauds, click frauds, etc. Instead of the malicious web page, a special warning page is displayed in the browser to inform the user that the requested web page is dangerous.

Bitdefender toolbar

The Bitdefender toolbar informs users about the security rating of the web pages they are viewing. By clicking a small dragger at the top of the browser window, users can see if the currently displayed page is either: safe, suspect or unsafe. The Search advisor rates search engine results and Facebook/Twitter links, by placing an icon in front of every result. Icons indicate if the link leads to a safe, suspect or unsafe page.

There are two types of threats contained by Cloud Security for Endpoints Anti-Phishing protection:

Spoofing - Web site forgery (spoofing) consists of malicious web sites attempting to impersonate legitimate ones for fraudulent reasons such as collecting user credentials or credit card information.

Internet frauds - Sites that do not assume false identities, but instead try to appear as honorable businesses and profit by tricking people into various scams such as:

Purchase frauds - Online vendors who don’t actually deliver the advertised products

Financial frauds - Such as those originating from false financial institutions Get-rich-quick-scams - Such as Ponzi schemes, work-at-home schemes or other “business-opportunity” schemes Internet marketing frauds - Malicious sites that harvest credit card information under various pretexts such as age verification or by selling dubious health products

Click frauds - Sites that deceive visitors into clicking links that lead to different destinations than the ones advertised Unethical dissemination - Domains that have been promoted using spam, blog comment spam, click frauds, social media scams or other dishonest methods

Firewall and Intrusion Detection

The firewall and the Intrusion Detection System (IDS) protect the system from network threats:

The Firewall controls applications' access to network resources/services and to the Internet. A comprehensive database of known, legitimate applications can be automatically allowed access. Furthermore, the firewall can protect the system against port scans, restrict ICS and warn when new nodes join a Wi-Fi connection.

The Intrusion Detection System protects the system from specific actions with malicious potential such as: dll injections, installation of malware drivers, and alteration of Bitdefender files by 3rd party applications, Internet Explorer exploits or keylogging attempts. The Data Protection module prevents users from unwittingly revealing specific confidential information by scanning outgoing email (SMTP) and web (HTTP) traffic and blocking predefined text strings from being sent. These text strings may include sensitive data such as: account names, names for in-development products or technologies, contact information for company executives, etc. There are usually two scenarios for this type of exposure:

Social engineering - This happens when another party actively attempts to deceive someone inside the company into revealing confidential information by techniques such as: impersonating co-workers or authorities, staging false situations or otherwise manipulating the victim to act in the social engineer's interest.

Accidental data leaks - In these scenarios, the user is divulging confidential information out of negligence, without being enticed in any way by the recipient.

Although this is not a deliberate data theft attempt, the consequences can be just as severe.

User Control

The User Control module restricts user's access to Internet and to applications either completely or based on a schedule. Online access restrictions can also be applied for: specific addresses, HTTP or SMTP traffic containing certain keywords, or for predefined Web site categories. There are over 30 types of websites that can be restricted including those providing: gambling, mature content, social networking, file sharing, online gaming, etc. The User Control module helps enforce company policies related to Web access, thus preventing productivity losses caused by employee idling and reducing data traffic costs.

virtualization - Bitdefender Security for Cloud Based Endpoints and Virtualized Environments

The Endpoint need to reduce costs and enable IT responsiveness to business change is driving more and more applications, counting critical ones, to various types of cloud platform s. While cloud providers can implement many of Endpoint the same cover measures required of an internal IT group, many companies are still wary. This is especially true for less expensive, multitenant public haze Environments that are inherently less secure than in-house Endpoint IT Environments , assuming that the onsite, internal IT Environments follow meet Security procedures and have the right Technology and standards in place. If not, then popular cloud service providers much provide a more Endpoint undamaged IT environment than limited IT groups. Providing Security for cloud Environments that matches the levels found in internal data centers is needed for helping modern organizations compete and for allowing service providers Endpoint to meet their customers' needs. However, to match the levels of Security that customers participation internally, service providers must make the proper investments in providing, proving and ensuring appropriate levels of Security over Endpoint time.

Whether adopted in public, private or mongrel form, or delivered as IaaS , PaaS or SaaS , the cloud imposes one and only and stringent Security demands. But with appropriate levels of Security, Endpoint trust and governance, advantage providers can provide a out of harm�s way environment for company data and applications. The cloud especially the public, multitenant fog raises new and significant Security concerns for companies Endpoint that are accustomed to hosting their data and applications within their own four walls.

Globally, the cloud continues to arrange challenges on how to carry agile, yet secure cloud Security, IT services Endpoint to enterprises. Cloud computing is a reality for all enterprises operating today. However, in the race to put data in the cloud to save on overall costs, companies need to be aware of Endpoint the hidden charge in terms of data and cloud Security. Cloud providers are not doing enough to secure current billow services, and enterprises need to broaden their Security policies to protect applications and Endpoint data stored in the cloud as strongly as they protect these within the company's internal infrastructure .

Monitor ing and governance: utilities that confess customers to Monitor the environment for Security, as well as Endpoint ensure concurrence with other KPIs, such as conduct and reliability. Using these utilities, customers should live befall able to perform these activities close to as well as they could in their own data Endpoint centers. Just as importantly, these utilities allow customers to take befitting action based on the refuge information received from the provider. These actions might include shutting down an purpose that appears to be Endpoint under attack or forcing the provider to tighten its procedures if disparaging updates or patches are not being applied on time. Governance also includes risk management, allowing companies to tailor their Security spending Endpoint to both the likelihood and imaginable impact of various threats. Doing so requires knowledge of how the work provider Monitor s for breaches, how Security events are detected and report ed, and the protection the Endpoint provider offers from a legal and financial perspective. Well-drafted contracts and a legal framework that defines liability including whether the provider will reimburse the customer for business losses or just for work interruptions Endpoint are all issues the provider must location .

This record of information will be used in the governance and risk dominate framework, where customers make use of data from the provider to Endpoint ensure ongoing Security. This framework should provide: The Monitor ing and control of the provider's conduct against the SLAs (service level agreements) that govern Security performance. Shared charge and accountability between the company and Endpoint service provider .

or obfuscation based on business requirements. Encryption might seem like the most complete and foolproof protection , but by completely obscuring the characteristics of the data , it can defeat indexing Endpoint and search capabilities and increase the expense of filtering, querying or consolidation. Obfuscation retains enough properties of the data to allow these operations, as well as any that rely on the semantics of Endpoint the data , while obscuring the data sufficiently to destroy its market price if compromised. While obfuscation has traditionally been used as a one-way nonreversible) masking Technology , using obfuscation in the cloud to protect Endpoint o requires the use of new architectures and approaches that enables admittance to the original non-obfuscated data as needed under tight Security boss.

ad ahead moving mission-critical data to the cloud, organizations Endpoint require not blameless Security but robust Security that they can trust and supervisor. Security is not aye a feature offered by cloud providers; sometimes providers require customers to accompany their own Here is Endpoint a closer look at all three requirements: .

The buying behavior changes for different organizational sizes, for example large enterprise selects cloud asylum as a service to reduce costs of ongoing maintenance Endpoint of Security tools and to simplify their Security programs or provide them more flexibility, In some cases cloud immunity as a service-specifically vulnerability assessment services are used simply to comply with external get Endpoint a load of requirements.

confidence and assurance: To meet the second requirement the company needs to have confidence in the integrity of the complete cloud environment. This includes the earthly data centers, Endpoint hardware, software, people and processes employed by the provider. The service provider needs to establish an evidence-based trust architecture and control of the cloud environment, through adequate Monitor ing and report ing capabilities to ensure Endpoint the customer of transparency around Security vulnerabilities and events This should include audit trails that help the customer meet internal and external demands for provable Security, as well as automate d notification and alerts Endpoint that support the customer's existing problem .

charge for cloud refuge is shared betwixt the service provider and enterprise. The more cloud infrastructure is controlled by the enterprise, the more the responsibility Endpoint falls to the organization to provide protection . For example, with an infrastructure as a Service ( IaaS ) haze the service provider is responsible for securing the underlying hardware, but businesses are expected to secure Endpoint their virtual infrastructure and their applications and data built on top of it. This can be achieved with VM Security that extends to cloud Environments with integrated case and network level protection . But Endpoint as cloud service providers offer more of the underlying platform s and applications, such as a platform what because a Service ( PaaS ) or Software as a Service ( SaaS ), they take on more of the Endpoint responsibility for protection .

documents stored and processed outside the enterprise firewall involves an connate level of risk, due to a number of factors. For one, third-party services generally bypass the physical, logical Endpoint and personnel controls that IT shops have over their in-house means. However, according to local and federal laws, the end user organization gratis specify the zone of the ormation center in which its Endpoint data decision reside. Making changes to the assistance provider's authorization or Access administer policies may require going by means of the provider's systems and processes. In public, multitenant Environments , companies necessary thing trust Endpoint the provider to safeguard their data even though it shares earthly hardware with other customers. And lastly, providers may impose limitations on the liability they will accept for Security lapses, and there may Endpoint be a need to work gone proper notifications of Security- and compliance-related events.

self management and provisioning platform s ensure that only authorized users can see the appropriate applications and details. This needs Endpoint to be backed by compliance and audit and log management, so that customers have a entry of which users Access ed which resources, when. In a cloud environment, Access and particularity management is often Endpoint provided through federated distinctiveness management that allows customers to use their existing IT management systems in the haze. Authentication , authorization and validation processes besides help ensure entering and identity boss. Providers may also Endpoint need to ensure the integrity of data and messages through beefy Authentication or other means to make certain data has not been compromised in shipment.

Within a traditional internal IT infrastructure , it Endpoint is comparatively easy to ensure right Security mechanisms, such as authorization, Authentication , privacy, confidentiality and nonrepudiation. These mechanisms must live befall accompanied by proper cover policies and processes that are followed by employees. Endpoint Although some users (such as customers and partners) are outside the organization's control, the IT staff has physical control over and direct visibility into the IT infrastructure . It can make changes relatively easily Endpoint to the power policies determining which users can take which actions, luential on the physical locations of servers and data bases, and validating the trustworthiness of the individuals managing their systems.

Robust Security: Endpoint Meeting the first requirement - providing robust Security - means inspiring beyond a traditional perimeter-based approach to a layered model that ensures the proper isolation of data , even in a shared, multitenant haze. Endpoint This includes content protection at clashing layers in the cloud infrastructure , such as at the storage , hypervisor, virtual machine and data base layers. It as well as requires mechanisms to outfit confidentiality and Access Endpoint boss. These may include Encryption , obfuscation and key management, as well as isolation and containment, husky log management and an audit infrastructure .

Confidentiality is provided by Encryption andThis means building Security and Endpoint trust architectures that ensure each company's applications and data are isolated and secure from those of other customers in a multitenant environment. By adhering to emerging Security standards and leveraging Encryption , obfuscation, virtual Endpoint LANs and virtual data center technologies, service providers gratis not only provide Security services that meet or exceed subjective civic SLAs, but also provide trusted Security, even from physically shared, multitenant Environments . Companies Endpoint should understand that public billow providers must also adhere to the stringent Security regulations of the countries in which they operate.

Cloud refuge controls vesel be classified in a tiered example. Front-end Endpoint asylum handles Authentication and power. The intermediate layer deals with virtual machine Security, OS immunity. Back-end Security handles storage Security, dope and data base Security, network Security, etc. Delivering assured and verifiable Security in Endpoint the cloud requires separate architectures for Security and trust, as well like that which a framework for governance .

The Security architecture provides the isolation, confidentiality and Access control required to protect Endpoint company data and applications. Here is a look at these three requirements: Isolation: To ensure isolation within a multitenant environment, service providers often employ multiple virtual data centers, each on its own virtual Endpoint LAN, to maintain customer data separation. For further Security, each virtual data center can be Configure d into one or more trust clusters (each including, for example, separate web servers, application servers and data base Endpoint zones), separated by demilitarized zones (DMZs) and virtual firewall s to ensure multi-tenancy care.

They will be significant growth in appropriation of cloud Security services used by companies along with a quickening step Endpoint of merger and acquisitions among IT Security companies. Higher than average growth of cloud Security services will engender merger and acquisition activity involving small and midsize cloud immunity specialists. During the next three Endpoint years, the growth rates for cloud Security services will overtake those of traditional on-premises Security equipment, according to the article.

The protection and confidentiality of dope as it moves over the Internet Endpoint to and from the cloud. dent management protocols so it vesel manage its all Security profile. Collectively, these capabilities bottle assure the customer of the Operational quality and Security of the murk provider. Endpoint Companies also need to take an active role in governing their nebula implementations and taking action on the information delivered by the provider.

The loss of control in moving applications and data Endpoint gone of the enterprise to a cloud provider, and the resulting challenges in Monitor ing and governing those resources, beget wider Security concerns that service providers must address. These include: Trusting data to the Endpoint people and processes employed by the provider. The threat of confidential data mingling with that of other customers. Achieving legal make amends in the condition of a haze Security violation. The viability of Endpoint the cloud vendor. All of this makes it spare challenging to create trustworthy controls for the Monitor ing, governance and auditing of the cloud provider environment.

.

The cost and agility benefits Endpoint of the cloud will continue to handle organizations to migrate more critical applications and services to these platform s. As they do so, they will choose cloud providers that deliver not only the required Endpoint Security but in addition the assurance of robust Security and the governance capabilities to manage ongoing Security needs in a cost-effective method. Companies that choose to work with service providers offering robust Security, Endpoint assurance and governance architectures option have powerful first-mover advantage as competitors of the total of sizes move more of their business to the cloud.

Identification, assessment and agreement on how to manage Endpoint ongoing Security-related functions. These include assessing, Monitor ing and report ing of answerability and legal risks; managing disaster recovery and dealings continuity, risks to compliance, IP and business reputation; and providing compliance audits and centralized, Endpoint policy-driven cut management .

The trust architecture demonstrates the cloud provider's level of Security through a diversity of Monitor ing, report ing and alert functions. These include: Continuous Monitor ing and automate d assent and report ing Endpoint protocols, such as Security content Automation Protocol. The Cloud Trust Protocol, the Security, Trust and Assurance Registry and Cloud Trust Authority, which exhibit the provider's commitment to industry best practices and pave the Endpoint way for trust to develop completed time. A proven footmark record of honesty of the provider's cloud Environments and processes. These range from strong patch care and the use of only digitally signed Endpoint code, to automate d notification and alerts of Security breaches, attacks and vulnerabilities. A real-time feed of information to an director dashboard about the number of breaches detected, the amount of unauthorized activity in Endpoint the customer's conditions and the actions taken to thwart it. Over time, future metrics can live befall developed based on the initial report s and the historic record used to provide a foundation of Endpoint trust. To further elevate their trust architecture, companies bottle turn to organizations such as the Cloud care Alliance. In addition, Gartner and other industry analysts own identified and classified areas of concern in Endpoint mist Security.
