GFI Software launched GFI VIPRE Antivirus Business 5.0 and GFI VIPRE Business Premium 5.0, the latest evolutions of the company’s flagship antivirus solutions.
GFI has made several key enhancements to VIPRE Business, including:
Incompatible software removal – Seamlessly integrated into a newly streamlined installation process, the incompatible software removal tool enables IT admins to deploy VIPRE Business in an environment free of other antivirus agents.
This technology is provided free of charge, and it is ideal for IT admins removing numerous agents across a network, as well as to ensure a completely clean testing environment when evaluating a 30-day, full-featured trial of the product.
Windows Firewall auto-configuration – The new VIPRE Business installation process automatically configures and provisions Windows Firewall settings on all endpoints to ensure communication with all deployed VIPRE agents, removing another time-consuming task IT admins may face when managing an antivirus solution.
Integrated database – VIPRE Business also eliminates the need for any database configuration by IT admins. It employs an integrated database that further accelerates the installation process and eases administration. IT admins can also use their own Microsoft® SQL database instance.
Auditing and reporting – IT admins have complete insight into any changes made to VIPRE Business’ security settings. This aids in policy enforcement, regulatory compliance and e-discovery.
Remote management – VIPRE Business provides an improved communication layer for IT admins, VARs and MSPs remotely managing antivirus solutions across multiple networks and locations.
Enhanced Management Console – An updated user interface makes managing endpoints even easier.
The upgrade to VIPRE Antivirus Business 5.0 is available to all existing VIPRE Antivirus Business and VIPRE Enterprise customers. New customers can purchase VIPRE Antivirus Business on a per-machine basis.
Pricing for VIPRE Antivirus Business and VIPRE Business Premium includes the first year of maintenance and starts at $193.80 and $240, respectively, for 5 machines, with a sliding scale discount based on number of machines. A 50% competitive upgrade discount also is available for a limited time.
