    1. WHAT'S NEW

    VIPRE Advanced Security for Home delivers the best protection at the best price, as the top-rated, award-winning endpoint security product for home users. Powered by next-generation advanced machine learning, one of the world’s largest threat intelligence clouds, and real-time behavior monitoring, VIPRE protects millions of users from ransomware, zero-day attacks, phishing, exploit kits, mobile threats and other malware that easily evades traditional signature-based antivirus. Easy to use, simple to buy and available at the best price, VIPRE provides the proactive advanced threat defense all users need to protect their digital lives, plus free U.S.-based technical support.


    On the heels of our 2016 release, which vaulted our core malware detection ratings to the top of the charts, this year’s release further simplifies and solidifies the protection you get from a broad range of features, including:


    • Simplified Packaging at a Lower Price: You get the best protection we offer at a fantastic value, now with advanced behavioral monitoring, patching for your apps and full network protection right out of the box for all customers.
    • Safer E-mail: Our anti-spam and anti-phishing capabilities have been updated and improved to protect you against the most common form of attack.
    • Safer Internet: Major improvements to our firewall and network threat scanning engines target network-borne attacks and threats.
    • Malicious App Detection: If a particularly sneaky app gets past our main scanning engine, our app monitoring and blocking technology will use both rule-based and behavioral techniques to find rogue apps and shut them down.
    • Go Faster: Top-to-bottom improvement in performance lets you work and play faster and more efficiently - and you won't know we’re there.

    If you are looking for the best protection with the best value in the industry, VIPRE Advanced Security for Home is the right solution for you.

    Issue
    The Device Guard feature in Windows 10 Enterprise Edition is not compatible with VIPRE's Advanced Active Protection feature.


    Workaround
    Depending on your environment and the types of services you intend to use on your computer, you should consider which of these two options provides the greater level of protection and enable only that solution.

    Perhaps it is underestimated or perhaps it has less marketing power, but certainly it is an excellent product.

    I think most people thought they saw the last of Vipre after the acquisition of Sunbelt by GFI. Then the split from GFI to what is now ThreatTrack. They fell off for a bit until they got more involved with Bitdefender. Then Vipre picked back up quickly. Smart move and looks to be in their favor to pick the business up again. Now they have the time to improve upon their own technology finally. :D
