Following the recent release of Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) and Cloud Security for Endpoints, Bitdefender today announced the expansion of the Partner Advantage Network to enhance the offerings of enterprise-level service providers, VARs, distributors, and system integrators with the most comprehensive security technologies available – integration with VMware vShield 5 Endpoint™, and support for Citrix, Microsoft, and other virtualization platforms.
Addressing the market problem
Until recently, the barrier to entry for many VARs, specialized channels and service providers has been the problem of securing virtualized environments; it required a mix of security technologies that were tied to specific operating systems or virtualization platforms. With Bitdefender, Partner Advantage Network members will now secure and manage multiple platforms with a single comprehensive security technology, SVE. Bitdefender also offers a strong competitive advantage to those service providers and integrators that focus on offering comprehensive public and private cloud solutions.

"We joined the expanded Bitdefender Partner Advantage Network because customers demand a security solution provider whose technology allows us to adapt to their unique and dynamic environments."
“In an enterprise environment, the security solution must be the least intrusive part of the equation, and the easiest to manage when working in the cloud or a multi-platform enterprise, with potentially hundreds, thousands, or hundreds of thousands of virtualized servers and desktops,” commented Rares Stefan, Director of Business Solutions Unit, Bitdefender. “Our enterprise technologies are designed to give our customers and valued channel the most sophisticated, cost-effective and efficient security technology for the organizations they serve.”
