    There were posts in the Wilders forum that state that Vipre may have also bought other different licenses from Bitdefender, making it more like a Bitdefender rebrand. Vipre also, allegedly, connects to Bitdefender servers other than the server of signature detection.

    Bitdefender and Vipre in the charts, though. :D

    Vipre appears to be a decent internet security suite - but I have no need of such nonsense...

    Ditto hjlbx, I have true security, and my PC resources.
    I notice the speed and responsiveness gain after freeing
    myself of the traditional Suites and bulky av solutions.

    It is not popular product at all. I don't know anyone who uses it. As shown in the chart above it's better than eset & kaspersky - unbelievable.

    I know Vipre from its fine reputation on their AV.

    They have indeed good protection from signatures and even their Behavior Based component.

    Honestly they don't need Bitdefender engine (allegations), it will just create another adjustment on their performance. One thing I like is is their ClearCloud DNS long before which provided strong web filtering algorithm at all.

    I try a lot of security software but I have also done a clean install, added all my fav software (no security products) and made a backup with AX64 TM Version 1, and Macrium. So I can try and in 3 minutes restore to the image....I was suprised by a couple packages one was Ad-aware IS it seemed as if my PC increased in speed... Vipre I think it was also very fast.

    It's no surprise, many other vendors will use the leverage by Professional Organisation ratings to boost their reputation and provide confidence to their customers.

    Example: You are more likely to buy an affordable car with better fuel consumption, than a car that drinks fuel like no tomorrow.

    It's a fantastic product, with, or without BitDefender engine. Their IDS/HIPS is just crazy sensitive, some might love that, but it will irritate others. They need to work on the performance side of things, though, because that's what made me stop using it all together.

    VIPRE's scanner was never really the more impressive feature, it was their HIPS/IDS. It's interesting however to see how the implementation of the BitDefender engine has contributed so much to their score. Thanks for sharing that.
