Lifetime business version of Vipre anti-virus introduced by GFI Software

GFI Software has launched a lifetime business version of its Vipre anti-virus solution.

Following the acquisition of Sunbelt Software last year, GFI released a lifetime consumer edition that eliminates the need for anti-virus renewals. It said that the Vipre anti-virus Business Lifetime provides continuous protection via software and virus definition updates for the life of each PC.

Two versions are available, Vipre Business Lifetime and Vipre Business Lifetime Premium. According to the company, Vipre Business Lifetime provides the necessary desktop functionality, including malware protection, role-based access control to ensure appropriate access and control for all administrators by region and function and policy-based management.

GFI said that the premium edition includes a two-way firewall that supports 32 and 64-bit environments, malicious URL filtering using GFI's ThreatTrack database of malicious URLs, ad and script blocking and an intrusion detection system and host intrusion prevention to protect against code injection.

Alex Eckelberry, general manager of GFI's security business unit, said: “We are changing how organisations buy and use security software. Vipre Business Lifetime enables businesses of all sizes to reduce costs and significantly ease the management of their anti-virus solutions.

“Our one-time pricing enables businesses to purchase Vipre Business licenses for the life of each of their PCs, instead of the 12-month standard, which delivers a greater return on investment without compromising protection.”
