Nomination Title: VIPRE Advanced Security for Business
Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and performance to date.
VIPRE Advanced Security for Business simplifies malware defense and ransomware prevention with next-generation advanced machine learning, making it easier for small and medium businesses (SMBs) to defend against ransomware, zero-day malware and other threats evading traditional antivirus.
Industry wide, the growing complexity of security solutions is making it more difficult and time consuming for network security professionals to adequately maintain the safety of their IT systems. Complicating matters is a growing shortage in the number of certified security personnel trained in advanced threat detection and prevention.
A recent study from Gartner Research confirms IT directors want simple-to-use products with actionable information that don’t require highly skilled staff to manage.
VIPRE Advanced Security for Business helps SMB owners and IT directors concerned about network and data security—but also overwhelmed by too many products options—deploy a comprehensive, cost-effective endpoint security solution powered by enterprise-class technology with:
Highest-rated malware protection
Advanced ransomware prevention
Removable device control and encryption
Low CPU and memory usage
Integrated patch management
Mobile Device Management
Cloud-enabled malicious URL blocking
Email security and anti-phishing
Yet price reigns supreme for small businesses when choosing endpoint security.
When making endpoint security purchases, price overshadows all other criteria for IT managers at companies of up to 500 employees. Price is so important, in fact, that 71% of respondents in a recent survey (see attachment) say they’ve had to settle for solutions with fewer features due to budget considerations.
Using next-generation scanning technology, always-on Advanced Active Protection, heuristics, signatures and other detection methods, VIPRE Advanced Security for Business delivers a sophisticated solution that offers:
Integrated patch management ensuring third-party PC software is up-to-date and protected against exploit kits
Cloud-enabled malicious URL blocking stops users from visiting malicious or compromised websites serving malware
Anti-phishing and email security keeps inboxes safe from malicious attachments and phishing links
Mobile Device Management secures Android devices from mobile malware and provides the ability to locate, lock and wipe lost Android and iOS devices
Advanced Active Protection leverages the latest technology to go beyond traditional techniques and detect new and emerging threats
Device control manages data entering and leaving your users physical ports and device types with enforceable encryption rules
Since its launch earlier this year, VIPRE Advanced Security for Business has already attained Gold Certification by OPSWAT, the software development tools and services company.
