CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VIPRE® Endpoint Security Cloud Edition outperformed Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection in head-to-head performance testing conducted by AV-Comparatives, a globally recognized software testing organization. The Real-World Protection Test examined over 300 live malicious URLs found in the field, replicating the same daily infection vectors that typical SMBs would experience. VIPRE achieved a 100% protection rate— versus an 86.4% rate for Webroot SecureAnywhere — and received superior marks for visibility, speed and ease of analysis.  Details of the full report can be viewed here.

VIPRE “has a number of advantages which, although individually small in sum, make network management significantly quicker and easier,” according to the report. Testers noted VIPRE was “very intuitive to use” and that its Endpoint Security Cloud stands out because of its “very clean, modern design used in both the console and the endpoint protection software.”

Advantage: VIPRE Endpoint Security – Cloud Edition
VIPRE Cloud provides fast, powerful and easy-to-manage endpoint protection for businesses of all sizes and, as specified in the AV-Comparatives report, is ideally suited for the SMB market. Additional advantages noted in the 35-plus-page report include:
