Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced that VIPRE Antivirus Premium has received certification for Desktop/Server Anti-Virus Detection and Cleaning from ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon Business. VIPRE Antivirus Premium earned certification for its high-performance anti-malware protection, which includes desktop firewall.
“The growing volume of threats makes it more critical than ever for consumers to have access to reliable, high-performing endpoint security products that deliver fast, powerful and comprehensive malware protection, ” says Andrew Hayter, anti-malcode program manager at ICSA Labs. “Given the number of anti-malware options available to consumers, it is important that products are rigorously tested by a third-party certification body, such as ICSA Labs, to verify that high standards of quality and reliability are met.”
VIPRE Antivirus Premium is designed to provide the fundamental, necessary desktop malware protection that users need in today’s threat environment. Instead of creating a product loaded with “marketing” features (such as parental controls or online backup), Sunbelt focused on the core features that provide users with comprehensive protection – desktop firewall, host-based intrusion prevention (HIPS), malicious URL filtering and an intrusion detection system (IDS).
“VIPRE Antivirus Premium offers consumers an award-winning antivirus and antispyware endpoint security solution with an integrated firewall,” said Curt Larson, VIPRE product manager of Sunbelt Software. “VIPRE was built with the consumer in mind to provide excellent endpoint protection without unnecessary features and functionality that slow down the performance of PCs. The ICSA Labs certification is a benchmark that confirms the reliability of Sunbelt’s powerful security product.”
ICSA Labs Anti-Virus Certification is achieved by meeting all criteria aimed at preventing the end user from becoming infected by viruses in-the-wild, as well as the ability to detect and remove those viruses prior to causing infection. VIPRE Antivirus Premium protection is designed to ensure the proper detection of self-replicating viruses before they can do any damage to the host system, or compromise user data or security.
