GFI Software combines antivirus and patch management
Posted on 27 September 2012.
GFI Software launched VIPRE Antivirus 2013 and VIPRE Internet Security 2013, which build upon VIPRE's detection rates and low impact on PC performance, helping to not only protect users' PCs from malware but also identify and fix any vulnerabilities that are present.

VIPRE Antivirus uses Active Protection, heuristics and other detection methods to protect against more than 100,000 new threats every day. The engine also works efficiently without impacting system performance, and in many cases, improves PC performance by detecting and removing malware that slows it down.

New features include:

VIPRE Rapid Scan Makes subsequent scans significantly faster after initial VIPRE scan and optimizes deep scans that normally take an hour so that they can be completed in 10 minutes or less.

Anti-rootkit technologies Finds and disables malicious hidden processes, threats, modules, services, and files on user systems.

Removable device scanning Scans USB sticks, CD/DVD-ROMS and external hard drives for threats automatically, before they can access and infect a PC.

Antivirus, anti-phishing email security Protects against email viruses, with direct support for Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and any email program that uses POP3 or SMTP; strips emails of phishing links, blocking access to phishing websites.

VIPRE Antivirus 2013 is available now. A single-user annual subscription is priced at just $39.99. VIPRE Internet Security 2013 is also available now for $49.99 for one year per user.
