Vipre integration with NetChk proves a winner in Tolly Group Test

Shavlik Technologies : 28 October, 2009  (New Product)
A side by side by the Tolly Group reveals high performance quality of NetChk Protect integrated protection solution from Shavlik Technologies
Shavlik Technologies has quoted a new Tolly Group test of leading endpoint security solutions that found the antivirus technology integrated into Shavlik NetChk Protect outperformed competitive solutions. The integration of Sunbelt Software's Vipre AntiVirus and Antispyware with Shavlik's leading NetChk Protect provides customers with the industry's highest performing integrated solution for securing enterprise environments.

The Tolly Group, a premier independent test lab, conducted a performance test of leading endpoint security solutions and the results showed that Sunbelt's Vipre Enterprise 'significantly outperformed' competing products from Symantec and McAfee. The test results showed the VIPRE engine had significantly lower system resource usage and faster scanning speed which were found to dramatically lower computing costs while bolstering system productivity.

When customers factor in the high performance benefits of Shavlik NetChk Protect with the Vipre engine, the result is the industry's highest performing integrated security solution for enterprises of all sizes. The higher performance combined with lower system utilisation and automation features results in a significantly improved ROI for an integrated solution that simplifies enterprise security.

'The Tolly Group test results validate our selection of Sunbelt as our antivirus and antispyware partner of choice for our customers,' said Mark Shavlik, CEO, Shavlik Technologies. 'Sunbelt's Vipre engine fully integrated into the Shavlik NetChk Agent provides users with a single, lightweight agent that performs AV, antispyware, Active Protection and patch management. The result is a solution that both simplifies and automates critical IT security and operational tasks without sacrificing performance or control.'

"Sunbelt and Shavlik are focused on addressing the frustration felt by IT Operations and end users over buggy, bloated AV solutions that require high resource usage and don't prevent malware from attacking a system," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "Sunbelt developed Vipre to offer powerful endpoint protection for both IT administrators and the end user, and Shavlik has integrated this technology into their solution to provide the same protection for its customers from its NetChk Protect platform. We are pleased to see that the Tolly Group tests validate that Vipre Enterprise significantly outperformed competing products from Symantec and McAfee through lower system resource usage and faster scanning speed."

According to Tolly Group test results, Vipre Enterprise had the least impact on PC performance (memory and CPU utilisation) whether the PC was in use or not. Vipre Enterprise used about 38 percent less memory than Symantec Endpoint Protection version 12 Small Business Edition and as much as 45 percent less memory than McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i. The Vipre Enterprise scanning speeds during full-system scans were more than 2.5 times faster than Symantec and more than five times faster than McAfee. It took Vipre Enterprise only eight minutes to perform a full system scan, while Symantec took 20 minutes, and a full system scan by McAfee lasted 28 minutes.

Shavlik NetChk Protect effectively protects endpoints to boost performance and eliminate agent bloat while simplifying management to help organisations spend less - less time, less money, less staff - on these critical IT operations. The combination of NetChk Protect and the integrated Vipre engine provides customers with a robust, stable, and simple-to-use platform that provides comprehensive and powerful endpoint protection against today's complex malware and hackers intent on stealing sensitive business information. NetChk Protect offers a clear alternative to bloated AV-only solutions that require customers to invest considerably greater amounts of system resources than necessary dramatically increasing the cost-per-employee for security and computing resources. NetChk Protect provides IT organisations with an ideal solution for enhanced security, greater system usability and at a lower cost.
