Virus Bulletin award for Vipre

Sunbelt Software : 20 January, 2010  (New Product)
Sunbelt Software's Vipre E-mail security software has been recognised by Virus Bulleting with the VBSpam award
Sunbelt Software, a provider of Windows security software, has announced that its Vipre Email Security has received a VBSpam award from Virus Bulletin, the highly-respected independent comparative testing group, in the January 2010 issue of its online publication.

Sunbelt Software, in its first-ever entry into this prestigious review, scored a Spam Catch (SC) rate of 98.77 percent, positioning it squarely against other leading antispam vendors. The VBSpam tests use Virus Bulletin's live email stream as well as a spam corpus provided by Project Honey Pot. The tests measure the false positive rate and the spam catch rate of the products, with VBSpam certifications awarded to products that exceed a predefined benchmark based on both measurements.

Virus Bulletin tested fifteen different antispam products and included two new categories of spam in this test including 'image spam' consisting of spam emails that contained at least one image and 'large spam' comprised of a body size of at least 50,000 bytes - both notoriously difficult to filter. Vipre, achieved a final score of 96.85 percent based on overall SC, false positives and honey pot tests.

"Over the past few years, Sunbelt has become a big name in the world of computer security…the product certainly has a good spam catch rate and won a VBSpam award with relative ease," wrote Virus Bulletin in the review.

"According to Virus Bulletin, the past decade has been defined by the emergence of spam as a malicious criminal activity that is showing no signs of dissipating, thus validating the industry's need for superior products that combat this growing threat," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "Vipre's superb results in its first Virus Bulletin anti-spam test validate the product's reliability and performance in protecting end users' inboxes."
