  • VIPRE Internet Security has undergone a few extreme changes in the past few years, which lead to a more stable and efficient solution. However, there are still a few features missing from the suite, such extensive support for social networks, protection for IMs, P2P connections and so on.

  • Third-party testing demonstrates that VIPRE is better than average at stopping widespread malware but not quite as good at stopping brand-new threats. VIPRE’s excellent malware detection comes at some performance cost, however, slowing down the host computer more than the industry average. The feature list is highly competitive. Help and support are excellent and include telephone and online chat access, which are lacking in some of its competitors.

  • Independent lab results and our own hands-on test results for ThreatTrack Vipre Antivirus 2015 range from decent to dismal. You'll get better protection at the same price by choosing one of our Editors' Choice antivirus products.


    -New interface is attractive and easy to use.
    -Lifetime single-PC license available.
    -Quick install.
    -Includes secure file deletion, history cleaner, Facebook wall scan.


    -Initial full scan took twice the average time.
    -Slightly below average malicious URL blocking.
    -Some low-to-poor results from independent labs.
    -Very poor score in our antiphishing test.

    In the race of the best Anti-Virus protection, you need to be very careful. There is many aspect that needs to be evaluated; virus detection, performance impact, report, and management feature list, etc. I had to evaluate many different Anti-Virus during the last year, and I have to admit our final choice is not VIPRE, sorry. We had very specifics requirement; No impact on performance, multi-platform (Windows/Mac/Linux), server-side exceptions and client-side exceptions. After testing more than 25 different antiviruses, I can tell it is very hard to find. I’ve also tested VIPRE Internet Security 2016 for Home to find a fit for my home computers, where the requirements are very different. First, the Security suite come with a lot of advanced features, like Firewall, Website Blocker, Edge Protection (zero-day threats), Anti-Malware, Social Watch, Search Guard, Auto Patch, Anti-Rootkit, Email Virus Protection, Spam Filter, Anti-Intrusion, etc! Very impressive for 50$ (based on shop.vipreantivirus.com) for a year, or 100$ for Lifetime. The UI is very clean, and the configuration come by default with the standard scanning schedule, Full scan once a week, Quick the other days. You don’t want to scan too much since it is resource intensive and unnecessary, you already “real-time-monitor”. The Quick scan will scan the most important files only. The Quick scan used 12% of my CPU and 100 MB of ram, during 11 minutes. That's a lot more than competitors, scanning 10x more files. I have 4 processes running: the Anti-Malware Service, the SBAMTray Application, the Plug-in Manager Service and the WebProxy.exe. When you open the UI, you will also have VIPREUI.exe. There is a “Catch Up Scan” option if a scheduled scan is missed, but they will only do a Quick Scan. You may miss all your full. The “Second Layer Scan” will run a full scan in case a risk is detected using a Quick Scan. I like the Battery Saver mode, to skip scans when on battery. The Email Filter (phishing, virus, spam) works with Outlook or POP3/SMTP. It won’t scan if you are using Gmail in IMAP. Updates are checked every 30 minutes by default, but can be customized. There is no setting to skip update on slow network (to save bandwidth), but the signature files are probably small.

    Pros :

    • Timeline – You can see all the actions that were taken.
    • All-In-One, from Firewall to Antivirus.
    • Low performance impacts on my computer.

    Cons :

    • Home version only runs on Windows.
    • Business says Mac and Windows.
    • There is free alternative.
