VIPRE #1 – Again

Posted on the 08:11 am under IT Security by Darren Boyer

A recent review of all consumer based antivirus solutions found GFI’s Vipre Antivirus once again as the best performing product compared to other antivirus solutions available.  Winner of the 2011 Editor’s Choice Award from www.pcantivirusreviews.com Vipre competed against other well known suppliers such as Norton, McAfee, AVG, BitDefender and Kapersky.

The reviews were based on several categories which include prevention, detection, removal, resource usage, impact on applications like email, and user interface. 

This was the second year in a row this website rated VIPRE #1.   In 2010 pcit also started recommending Vipre as the preferred antivirus software to our customers. 

Recently www.zdnet.com also tested Vipre and found that it’s use of system resources was considerably less than competing products from Norton and Kapersky.  Systems ran much faster after Vipre was installed.

Vipre has also received numerous other industry awards and acknowledgements.  The German security company AV-Test GmbH released results in May 2011 ranking Vipre 12th out of 22 overall.  Vipre did take top marks in 2 out of 3 categories.  As noted in the review over any given quarter different antivirus providers Protection ranking can vary widely as new malware is released.  Some products will block the new malware better than others as different variations of malware are introduced.
