Bitdefender New Portfolio email

This will not effect MspPortal Partners pricing on all Gravity Zone pricing will remain the same. Per my Distribution Manager 1-6-2021

Yes a la carte refers only to annual enterprise solution – not MSP. You will continue to distribute Cloud Security for MSP + ATS + EDR, etc. with no change 😊

I will let you know details ASAP on the annual pricing changes to the enterprise only (no change to annual bundles).

The message sent was a little confusing and concerning to a lot of MSP and Resellers

The a-la-carte licensing model is being updated: advanced security capabilities (Cloud Sandbox, HyperDetect and Root Cause Analysis) will now be included in the base license to provide an even higher security level with the base tier. We are also consolidating SKUs and will support both on-premises and cloud console deployments from the same SKU/license.

The current a-la-carte products and GravityZone Advanced Business Security will move to End-of-Sale for new customers starting April 1st, 2022. This is due to the introduction of the enhanced a-la-carte licensing mentioned above and to optimize the number of packages in our business solutions portfolio from four to three.

Something to think about as an opinion and comment if you bill your clients annually you might change to monthly as soon as feasible and financially acceptable to you.  Annual contracts both with your vendor and your clients could backfire or be detrimental to you .

Bitdefender BEST 7.4.2.142 (Windows) Release Notes – Fast Ring

BItdefender updates The release notes are available here.

Folks stay up to date on Product 7.4.2.142 and  engine 7.90782 last update 1-4-2022

Also Bitdefender alerts via email .. they are still struggling and still using Mailchimp hence you’re not receiving all alerts that you have requested. Very important to login daily..and review your endpoints if they have red on them more then likely it is a  engine update but could be a product update is needed. If you are with a RMM solution using Bitdefender my suggestion is to convert to the real Gravity Zone platform. Not all distributors are the same, pricing should be the same based upon Bitdefender guidelines but some will try to buy your business. Pricing is not always the best way to select your distributor, interview them and find out if you have a questions or issue do they pick up the phone and do they have tech support available to answer and fix your solution and or questions. Safe Safe folks malware is on the rise
