This category used to be for makers of anti-virus software, but with next-generation security systems popping up all over we decided to turn it into a general endpoint protection award. Webroot Inc. took first prize handily, but the real story here is VIPRE Security slipping past the much bigger and better-known Symantec Corp. to grab the silver honors.
VIPRE’s top-rated, award-winning endpoint security delivers the best protection at the best price for channel partners and businesses worldwide. Powered by next-generation machine learning, one of the largest threat intelligence clouds and real-time behavior monitoring, VIPRE enables partners to sell the most robust, easy-to-use security solution to defend clients from ransomware, zero-day attacks, phishing and other malware threats that easily evade traditional antivirus. Be more competitive and more profitable than ever before by partnering with VIPRE. www.vipre.com/partners/
