You can deploy Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools (BEST) for TAS by following the BOSH-orchestrated process summarized in the diagram below. BEST works in tandem with the unified GravityZone Management Console, which provides BEST with licenses, security policies, updates, and upgrades while ingesting security events it reports. The GravityZone Console is deployed separately from BEST - either on premises by the customer or in the cloud by Bitdefender.
