VIPRE Business Premium includes integrated patch management, a firewall, a malicious website blocker, and an anti-phishing filter.

GFI Software has launched the latest edition of VIPRE Business. The antivirus software now provides SMB a single solution for antivirus, patch management, and mobile device management.

The newest version of VIPRE Business Premium aims to address several security challenges facing administrators today, including vulnerabilities in third-party software products, which according to the GFI Malware Response Team, account for up to 75 percent of malware and virus infections that compromise SMB networks.

“SMBs today are facing the challenge of managing disparate mobile devices running multiple operating systems, creating new issues and security concerns that didn’t exist just a few years ago,” states a GFI Software press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB. VIPRE Business is designed to address these challenges by enabling administrators to centrally manage antivirus protection for PCs, Macs, and Android devices as well as mobile security for iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones and tablets.

In addition, VIPRE Business Premium includes integrated patch management, a firewall, a malicious website blocker, and an anti-phishing filter. VIPRE’s patch management feature in the Premium version automatically finds and applies updates to out-of-date software. It also displays the status of Windows Updates on each computer, and can turn on Windows Updates to keep the operating system fully up to date.

New features includes in the latest version of VIPRE Business include:

  • Patch Management – Auto-updates software by integrating patch management (available in Premium version).
  • Mobile Device Management – Offers remote wipe for smartphones and tablets. Android protection includes antivirus and remote alarm and locate features; iPad and iPhone protection includes remote lock and password enforcement.
  • Mac Desktop & Laptop Security – Includes a dedicated policy that enables admins to configure and centrally manage antivirus on these devices from the VIPRE console.
  • Unprotected & Infected Network PC ID – Finds unprotected machines and alerts administrator to take action.
  • Auto-Removal of Existing Antivirus Software – Eliminates conflicts on the network during installation by automatically removing existing AV solutions.
  • Removable Device Scanning – Auto-scans USB flash drives and other removable media when plugged or inserted into PCs to prevent infections.

VIPRE Antivirus Business and VIPRE Business Premium are now available. An annual subscription for 10 workstations is priced at just $148. The Premium version costs just $176. All subscriptions include threat definition updates, software upgrades, and free tech support by phone, email, chat, and forums.
