Optimized security technology for speed

Speed is King

Corporate networks are constantly besieged by incoming data. A lot of hardware power is used to process it and, multiple times, latency becomes a given. This means time sensitive applications that require high quality network connections (like productivity suites or video conference apps) are often affected. This is why Bitdefender offers lean technologies that are tailored to meet the strict performance needs of gateway security solutions.

  • Bitdefender Stream Defender gives you high performance stream-based Antimalware capabilities.
  • Our solution supports high speed antimalware protection at Gigabit speeds.
  • Bitdefender SDKs are optimized to offer maximum protection without hindering users’ day-to-day productivity.

Applicable SDKs

Antimalware Client-Server SDK

The Bitdefender Client-Server Software Development Kit (SDK) allows quick integration of multiple Bitdefender security technologies, enabling partners to secure the perimeter at a gateway level. Our multi-layered, industry leading, security solution can be easily integrated into your services, with minimum resource consumption.

  • Provides an extra layer of security and autonomy by running in a separate process.
  • Multiple integration models available, including industry standard protocols such as ICAP and SPAMD.

Antispam SDK

The Bitdefender Antispam SDK scans partner-provided email messages and flags the content recognized as spam. For messages detected as spam, the SDK offers additional information, which can be used by the partner application to change the detection threshold. For better visibility, our SDK can also add specific headers into the email message, indicating spam status.

  • Prevents real-time spam outbreaks using Bitdefender cloud technology.
  • Detection is updated every second and replicated around the world via the Bitdefender Global Protective Network.
  • High efficacy, with an extremely low number of false positives; if one or more filters detect spam characteristics, emails will be flagged accordingly.
  • Minimizes device footprint due to Thin Client technology.
  • No need for signature updates as all detection is performed in the cloud.
  • Easy portability using the same API for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
  • Detailed SDK code samples that reduce time needed to integrate the SDK into any messaging solution.

URL Status Service

The URL Status service scans URLs supplied by the partner application against a dynamically updated cloud database to validate whether they pose a threat. URL Status is completely cloud-based. URL information is updated in real-time, with new malicious URLs, domains identified and processed by Bitdefender technologies, and additional intelligence gained from multiple sources.

  • Easy-to-use and flexible APIs available for integration.
  • Fueled by Bitdefender Award winning Antimalware, Antispam, Antiphishing, and Antifraud technologies.
  • Always up-to-date via the Bitdefender Global Protective Network.
  • Also available as a hosted service in your infrastructure.

Web Filtering SDK

Bitdefender’s Web Filtering SDK gives partners effective URL and web-page category-based filtering capabilities, allowing them to develop solutions that categorize URLs and websites in real time and further facilitate web access monitoring and control. This lets partners successfully address customers’ concerns about security, while increasing employee productivity and freeing up valuable IT resources and network bandwidth.

Download Datasheet


  • Broad coverage, including millions of relevant, active URLs and websites, in multiple languages.
  • 50+ domain categories, including high-risk ones (drugs, gambling, hacking, hate, illegal, porn etc.).
  • High-accuracy detection ensured by heuristic filtering coupled with signatures and URL blacklisting.
  • The combination of fast cloud URL lookups with a local database cache prevents any latency.
  • Offers around-the-clock cloud-based updates of web categories; domains are added or updated instantly.
  • Offers an easy-to-use cross-platform API that keeps the integration time to a minimum and is fit for a variety of use cases.

Online Threats SDK

The Online Threats SDK detects malicious, phishing, and fraudulent websites before they can expose your assets to a scam attack. It uses advanced local and cloud filters to analyze URLs and web page content and returns the verdict (clean, phishing, fraud etc.).
The SDK combines superior detection powered by advanced heuristics with cloud-based updates provided by the Bitdefender security cloud (Global Protective Network / GPN), which processes billions of website transactions daily. Using the GPN cloud ensures instant detection and/or updating of URLs and websites (even those that are live very briefly), as well as fast reaction to new attacks such as phishing outbreaks.

Sandbox for Advanced Threats

A powerful layer of protection against stealthy attacks, the Sandbox service analyzes suspicious files in depth, detonates payloads in a contained virtual environment, analyzes their behavior, reports malicious intent and provides actionable insight.
The Sandbox service acts as a “real target environment” for potentially malicious files, where everything is carefully crafted so threats act as they would in the wild, making it a powerful tool against targeted malware attacks and malware infiltration.

Sandbox Analyzer on Premise

Deployable as a virtual appliance and managed via a rich UI, the On-Premise packaging of the Sandbox Analyzer environment provides an additional layer of security, focused mainly on threat hunting and forensics. Unlike a cloud service, the On-Premise deployment allows for total control of the detonation environment used for malware analysis, enabling OEM partners to determine the specifics of the overall environment and corresponding software used to analyze files and apps. Currently supported on the VMWare ESXi environment, deploying the solution via a virtual appliance allows unlimited scalability given the limits of physical underlying hardware.

Download Datasheet


  • Deployed as single management VM on dedicated physical host.
  • Uses VMFS version 5, tested on ESXi 6.5, 6.7.
  • Orchestration and high-level management via on-premise instance of Gravity Zone Control Center.
