About VIPRE Antivirus Business


VIPRE Antivirus Business is a security solution with a strong emphasis not only on anti-malware protection, but also on mobile device management (MDM), helping protect computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets against cyberthreats.

VIPRE Antivirus Business enables a central administrator to manage antivirus on PC and Mac desktops and laptops, while the MDM component can manage both Android and iOS mobile devices. It’s suited to businesses looking for a broad range of protections not only against traditional computer security problems, such as viruses, spyware or Trojans, but also the challenges posed by mobile devices.

VIPRE Antivirus Business also includes email protection, real-time threat detection based on live threat data collected and updated multiple times each day by VIPRE’s security lab and the scanning of removable devices such as USB flash drives, which can serve as a source of infection.

This solution is best suited for small and midsize businesses.

Vipre Business is a very solid product that kept our network secure for many years.

Very consistent & easy to work with software that managed our client computers well.

Pros

Our version of Vipre was server-based and gave us a lot of granular control over our clients. I could initiate several AV functions immediately from the control panel, and I could also check the status of many software patches for each of those clients. The overhead of the used resources was low, and the nightly scans performed well each night. Reporting and notifications were also good.

Cons

We left this software in favor of a more moderately priced web solution in terms of seats. Vipre would occasionally let in some files that were infected and that would need to be detected/removed by other malware specific programs. Not many, but enough to make me think of other solutions. I'm not sure if they have come out with a cloud solution since we left in Fall of 2017, but that would have been a nice option as well.

I tested Vipre with a variety of penetration tests and it stopped most attacks immediately

Pros

I threw a littany of attacks at Vipre and it immediately recognised and stopped all but those I ran by eminating an HID device for which I had physical access to the computer. While there are certainly ways to bypass Vipre, it has, in my experience and research, a constantly updated list of attacks and an immediate response time. The power of this software also makes it a less desirable target for attacks as one could spend much less time creating an attack for a weaker and more commonly used program

Cons

When Vipre runs a scan it takes up a ridiculous amount of processing power. I'm running dual xeon processors with a SSD and 32Gb of ram and I still have to kill the procoesss. That said, scheduled the full scans for the middle of the night and you should be good to go

Low Quality Product Not Detecting Even Old Viruses

Tried to contact support but they could not find my license, which we paid money for a number of years back. The company has gone through many mergers, Sunbelt, GFI, ThreatAware etc. and seemingly lost records. They refused to give me even a bit of support. So I not only does this antivirus not protect you, not only does it not even handle older viruses let alone any new threatas, not only does it not find your computers in your network and requires painful manual installation requiring dozens of hours. there is also no support. This product is absolutely not recommended.

Pros

Good is that there is a centralized console, which is supposed to be capable to detect workstations on your network automatically and push out agent installations + updates to them, in theory at least.

Cons

The central console only detects about 60% of your workstations. No amount of reboots handles this situation. You literally have to generate a MSI file from the server console and walk to each station physically to install the MSI. And that install is painful again - on most computers it took us 5 (five!) reboots and 2-3 re-installs of the MSI before it finally become active and recognized by the central console. Some computers even never got recognized, no matter how many times they were rebooted and re-installed. That's a really poor show. And I am not alone with this - I have asked a few colleagues in other companies, and they all said this is a "normal" problem with Vipre, it always does this.
Tried to update to the latest version - no change, still does the same.

The worst part is that the detection rate is absolutely awful. If you look at the history of threat detection it usually finds nothing. On several workstations I ran a full deep scan with Vipre, and it found no threats at all. Then ran a scan with Malwarebytes and it found 40 threats! All the way from really old threats like Conficker and a v5.vbs virus to other type of malware. Vipre had found nothing for weeks!

Vipre Business Antivirus Antimalware Kicks Butt

Support is great, sale team is also very good.

Pros

Love that you have a centralized console to monitor all the computers you you manage. They do not need to be in one physical location. The reporting is great and the instant notification if a computer because infected is something every IT pro needs.

Cons

The console needs to sit on one computer. You can use the cloud version which fixes this problem but if you have many computers connects to the console the migration can be a pain.

A Good Solution for Small Businesses

In my minimal interaction with tech support, they have always been helpful and responsive.

Pros

The licensing is flexible. Some companies charge extra to install on a server OS vs a desktop OS. Vipre does not impose that restriction. A simple one-license, one-device policy.

Also, a US based company.

Cons

Unfortunately, like all anti-virus solutions, you need to run a local AV server to get the best opportunity to fine-tune machine policies to your liking.

Updates cause issues with other software

Pros

This system is GREAT at shielding your computer system. Its like a fortress that has been built to protect.

Cons

Seems that with each update that comes, it wipes away settings where I have allowed certain files from my office management software to pass through the antivirus system. The result is needless time spent trying to figure out if the issue is being caused by the OM software or AV software. I now check Vipre first everytime.

It's an antivirus that really work and your device bearly notice about it

Security and safety of my information

Pros

It doesn't slow down my pc, works because i have no virus problems in years, and the only time i need support (for setup after a windows upgrade) the support team solve by remote control.

Cons

i think the only think that vipre does not cover yet is the multi-language UI, and it's not really a Con but will be a plus to include this option in the future for this product.

Great Home Backup Solution

Works well and I like the product. Would recommend to users that are not as worried about security

Pros

This works great on home based computers or home based businesses. Blocks a lot and gives a lot of options for managing.

Cons

I would not use in a big business with all the other options that are out there.

One of the best

Pros

Vipre is one of the best enterprise anti-viruses I've ever used. Central management, easy deployment, great reporting.

Cons

The UI for the server side needs to be updated. Looks like it's from the 90s. Client side looks great.

Reliable protection for your business

Pros

Easy to manage, instant quarantines and threat protection, automatic updates that require little management.

Cons

I have not had any luck getting Vipre to push installs to any workstations, servers, or laptops, but it is very easy to create a custom package and install it straight from the client.
