High performance threat protection with low impact to system resources
User surveys show the biggest frustration with existing antivirus programs is bloat and high resource usage. VIPRE Antivirus runs seamlessly without significantly impairing system performance and is designed for an unobtrusive user experience, keeping notification pop-ups and warnings to a minimum.
All-new technology delivers a unique antivirus and antispyware engine
At VIPRE's core is an antivirus and antispyware engine that merges the detection of all types of malware into a single efficient and powerful system. The new technology was developed exclusively by Sunbelt, without building on older generation antivirus engines. VIPRE uses next-generation technologies making it the future of antivirus programs!
Advanced anti-rootkit technology
VIPRE's all-new anti-rootkit technology finds and disables malicious hidden processes, threats, modules, services, files, Alternate Data Streams (ADS), or registry keys on a user's system.
VIPRE is Checkmark Anti-Virus Desktop certified by West Coast Labs and will receive additional certifications through other certifying bodies in the coming months.
Removing rootkits is supplemented by VIPRE's FirstScan which runs at the system's boot time. FirstScan bypasses the Windows operating system, to directly scan certain locations of the hard drive for malware, removing infections where found.
Real-time monitoring with Active Protection
VIPRE's Active Protection delivers real time monitoring and protection against known and unknown malware threats. Active Protection works inside the Windows kernel (the core of the operating system), watching for malware and stopping it before it has a chance to execute on a user's system.
Active Protection incorporates three methods to protect the user:
- Signature matching, comparing a file for an exact match against VIPRE's definition database
- Heuristic analysis, which looks at the internal characteristics of a file to determine the likelihood that it is malware;
- Behavioral analysis, observing the actual actions of a program to determine if it is possibly malware.
Full protection against email-borne threats
VIPRE Antivirus includes comprehensive protection against email viruses, with direct support for Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail; and support for any email program that uses POP3 and SMTP (Thunderbird, IncrediMail, Eudora, etc.).
