eWeek Labs

VIPRE Enterprise Premium: VIPRE Enterprise AV is Effective,Inexpensive

"Our experience with Symantec AV was troubled. We encountered multiple issues installing the management console which Symantec support was not able to resolve. Performance of the Symantec agent effected end user system performace. For these reasons we looked at other managed AV solutions and after several trials with various other AV products we settled on VIPRE Enterprise AV and have been very satisfied with the results. The product does what it is supposed to do without any complications or unneeded complexity. VIPRE Enterprise "just works"." - eWeek,October 2010
