against today’s highly complex threats, and IS NOT a resource hog.
What’s New In The Premium version?
We have kept all the strong points of VIPRE antivirus + antispyware and we added a leading edge, super low-overhead 2-way firewall that supports all Windows flavors and works both on 32- and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. It’s so small you won’t notice it is running. To make sure your PC is fully protected, we also added Intrusion Prevention, malicious link filtering and much more. This is all you need for your PC Internet Security, and with that you deserve better tech support. Read what PC Magazine Analyst Neil Rubenking wrote about VIPRE tech support!
VIPRE Is Antivirus Certified
The movies have their Oscars. Cars have the JD Power Awards. Antivirus products have their so-called ‘VB100′ Certification, awarded by the world’s premier virus certification lab: Virus Bulletin. Only products that catch all the viruses they test for are getting the prestigious VB100 award. VIPRE is VB100 certified and confirmed to give you world-class quality in detecting and removing malware. VIPRE is also ICSA and West Coast Labs Checkmark Anti-Virus Desktop certified, and continues to get additional certifications through other certifying bodies.
Virus Bulletin said in their VIPRE review (tested on Windows 7): “The WildList proved no obstacle despite the set of tricky Virut samples, and with no false positives either VIPRE earns a VB100 on its first appearance; we hope to see many more.”
The Press Loves It
ZDNet said in their security blog about the VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware (the one without firewall): “Sunbelt Software’s VIPRE – I’ve finally found an package that delivers the goods. In a follow-up posting they did a performance shoot-out and concluded: “Sunbelt Software’s claim that VIPRE doesn’t hog system resources and doesn’t slow down a PC isn’t just marketing hyperbole but is actually true.”
How much of your PC is being hijacked bybloatware ?
Over time, instead of writing new and better software, old-stylecompanies have stacked layer upon layer of security engines on top of each other, (one for viruses, a second for , a third engine for rootkits, a fourth for malicious web links and so on) and created bloatware in the process. They slow down your PC, have slow scan times and cause performance problems.
VIPRE: Weapons-grade 2-way Firewall Comes With Rottweiler
With the VIPRE Antivirus Premium version you get a 2-way desktop firewall, and additional, more advanced intrusion protection. See it like this. The firewall is like having all your doors and windows upgraded and equipped with new state-of-the art locks. But a burglar could throw a brick through the back window and wreak havoc inside. That’s why people have burglar alarms, often with motion detectors. VIPRE’s firewall is like your PC’s new strong doors, windows and locks. But Internet traffic does need to get through, because you want to browse the web. So that is why VIPRE’s advanced intrusion protection is there as a super burglar alarm that has the added benefit that it can stop an attacker in their tracks. Think ‘Rottweiler in the house’. And if you just want a firewall and not worry about anything else, all you need to do is keep the firewall enabled in the default ‘Simple Mode’.
Web Filtering Technologies:
VIPRE Antivirus Premium will look at all the web traffic that comes in and filters it for security. There are several features that protect you:
- Ad blocking – Block malicious or third-party advertisements
- Bad URL blocking – Bad website blocking
- Anti-phishing – Blocks access to known phishing websites
- Boot time firewall – To prevent malware from executing, the Boot Time feature limits access on your PC to only certain resources upon loading.
