Continued High VB100 Ranking For Vipre

Sunbelt Software : 13 August, 2010  (New Product)
The Virus Bulletin 100 list continues to include Vipre from Sunbelt Software for its high performance in virus and malware detection
Sunbelt Software's flagship antivirus solution, Vipre has been listed on the VB100 list by Virus Bulletin, the highly-respected independent comparative testing group, in the August 2010 issue of its online publication.

The test was conducted on a system running Windows Vista Professional Service Pack 2 and subjected Vipre to over 100,000 threats ranging from social networking and online gaming data stealers and three new strains of W32/Virut, which has been the bane of many products in the last few years.

Vipre detected 97.83% of worms and bots thrown at it and was particularly successful in detecting all 'in the wild' viruses without generating a single false positive. Viruses are generally categorised as 'in the wild' when they are spreading as a result of normal day-to-day operations on and between the computers of unsuspecting users. The outstanding level of malicious code detection recognises the depth and accuracy of the VIPRE antivirus technology. Vipre was also lauded for having one of the highest average proactive detection rates of any of the solutions tested in the past six months.

Vipre has long been heralded as an efficient all-in-one endpoint malware protection solution that is not a resource hog, a benefit picked up by the Virus Bulletin testers. "Sunbelt's marketing campaigns regularly boast of Vipre's lightness of weight and lack of bloat, and these assertions are certainly supported by the product's wafer-thin 16MB installer, supplemented by a mere 66MB of updates, available to download as a standalone package from the company's website," said Virus Bulletin's John Hawes, who coordinated the testing. "The set-up process is short and sweet too, taking only a few seconds to complete - with no reboot needed, the process was over in less than half a minute."

"Inclusion on the VB100 is a true testament of Vipre's capabilities as it is pitted against other leading antivirus products," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "Our focus has always been on customer satisfaction, ease of use and high level of threat detection. The tests from Virus Bulletin show that Vipre is a reliable antivirus solution that is easy to set up and use."

Virus Bulletin conducts independent comparative testing of antivirus products. The tests focus on virus detection rates and scanning speed, as well as look at how each product fares when scanning set files that are known to be clean. In order to display the VB100 logo, an antivirus product must have demonstrated in Virus Bulletin tests that: It detects all viruses currently spreading throughout a diverse user population during both on-demand and on-access scanning; and it generates no 'false positives' when scanning a set of clean files. The product must fulfil these criteria in its default state.
