AV-Comparatives Awards 2021 for VIPRE
VIPRE participated successfully in AV-Comparatives’ Enterprise and Consumer Main Test Series of 2021. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.
VIPRE Advanced Security is very easy to install, and has a very modern, touch-friendly interface, with light and dark modes. Default settings provide safe options for non-expert users. In our functionality check, VIPRE’s sensitive on-access protection proactively deleted malware on an external drive as soon as we opened it in Windows File Explorer. We liked the online help feature and the ability to search it directly from the program. The ability to set scanning exclusions using Windows File Explorer’s right-click menu is also very convenient.
VIPRE Endpoint Cloud provides a cloud-based console for managing the endpoint protection software, as you would expect. The product can manage networks with thousands of devices. We feel it would also be very suitable for very small businesses with just a few seats.
AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.
AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.
