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

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.

I think it was me that made this post :p

Vipre is a rebrand of Bitdefender 2016, you can see that unlike other solutions, Vipre uses AVC too (processes are injected by avcuf64.dll and avccuf32.dll ) and you can see Nimbus.bitdefender.net Requests (BD's Cloud).
Thats why Vipre has exactly the same detection of Bitdefender 2016, unlike other solutions that only use BD Core (base signatures +HiVE and B-HAVE).

Even if it isnt the same, it is clear that Bitdefender is the star here. I posted my reply because some folks here think that Vipre has gone through a technology revamp and that isnt the case, it is all about Bitdefender technology and anyone can verify.

Ps: I am talking about Internet Security Pro, that is the version that was tested by AV-Comparatives.



All BD technology ...
My stance continue, anyone can test those claims.

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.

I dont know if the "original", "in-house" Vipre can be called fantastic.

2015 without Bitdefender "rebrand":

Sunbelt Vipre was a very interesting product at its time, but ThreatTrack Vipre is Bitdefender and that isnt a problem, if you like, just use it.
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.
