The Challenge, an innovative shopping digital platform for fashion and beauty products, was nearing the end of a three-year contract with a vendor of an anti-virus solution that was providing limited value.


As a first step, reviewed testing conducted by MITRE ATTACK and AV-Comparatives and identified the top three performing solutions for threat protection. Showroomprive. com then evaluated the finalists for ease of use, cost, and patch management and ultimately selected our partner enabled Bitdefender GravityZone Business Security Enterprise.


Matthieu Girard, Chief Information Security Officer,, explains, “I was impressed with how many top software firms had embedded Bitdefender into their own security offerings. It was reassuring that Bitdefender had been serving enterprise companies for over 20 years. Unlike other vendors, Bitdefender emphasized prevention layers and log correlations in our discussions with them. Finally, GravityZone was the most cost competitive compared to other leading solutions we evaluated.”

The Solution uses GravityZone Business Security Enterprise to provide 1,500 physical and virtual endpoints with integrated endpoint detection and response (EDR), threat detection and prevention, and risk analytics. GravityZone’s EDR capabilities continuously monitor the network to uncover suspicious activity and provide the tools needed to defend against cyberattacks.

In addition, use GravityZone Patch Management to automate patching of operating systems and applications.

Right from the start, GravityZone proved its value during the implementation, according to Girard: “Bitdefender’s knowledge of GravityZone, as well as cybersecurity requirements and technologies, has been extraordinary. If we missed or misunderstood something during the installation, Bitdefender was quick to respond and explain and find a solution.”

The Results

GravityZone has increased protection of’s fast-growing digital assets, while streamlining day-to-day security administration for technical staff.

“Since deploying GravityZone, has been protected from any known breaches, and for the unknown ones we can rely on the other detection engines,” reports Girard. “With GravityZone endpoint risk analytics, we have reduced the risk of an attack by being able to easily review blacklisted or quarantined files that users may have attempted to download. It also shows us how settings and configurations can be adjusted to improve protection.”

Girard cites event correlation and EDR as major advantages of GravityZone: “The ability of GravityZone to correlate two small seemingly innocuous events and generate an alert has helped harden our infrastructure in a meaningful way. In addition, GravityZone does a good job preventing users from downloading files that likely would have infected their devices.”

Another advantage of GravityZone is Web filtering. uses GravityZone to control access or blocking across multiple Web categories and can add specific websites to the filters as needed.

Girard credits the GravityZone cloud console with making administration more efficient and simpler: “We like that management is the same whether users are in the office or at home. The intuitive, cloud-based design of the GravityZone console has made it easier and faster to dig for information about the environment and deploy rule changes or take other corrective actions.”

In addition, GravityZone Patch Management has contributed to improved efficiency and security. It automatically executes non-security updates of workstations and servers weekly. Security updates are pushed in real time as soon as they are available. Keeping up to date with patches has further reduced vulnerabilities for

The relationship with Bitdefender also has been valuable, according to Girard: “We’ve been impressed with the mastery of Bitdefender’s sales and technical staff of the technological and business aspects of GravityZone and the cybersecurity market. We also appreciate their professionalism. These assets have made working with Bitdefender smooth and productive.”
