Sunbelt Software Announces VIPRE Antivirus Premium

New VIPRE Antivirus Premium 4.0
VIPRE Antivirus Premium 4.0 is designed to provide the core, necessary desktop malware protection that users need in today's threat environment. Instead of creating a product loaded with largely marketing features (such as parental controls or online backup), Sunbelt focused on the core features that provide users with comprehensive protection - a desktop firewall, host-based intrusion prevention (HIPS), malicious URL filtering and an intrusion detection system (IDS).

Features in the Premium edition include:

Two-way firewall: Based on the company's Sunbelt Personal Firewall™ technology, the new fully integrated bi-directional firewall supports 32 and 64-bit environments and protects users from unwanted incoming and outgoing traffic. The firewall can run in a "Simple" mode (which provides inbound protection and requires virtually no user interaction) or for advanced users, a "Learning" mode (which adds outbound protection, requiring the user to train the firewall on acceptable outbound traffic). In addition, there is a "Boot Time" firewall mode, which limits access on the PC to only certain resources upon loading.

Web filtering: Since most threats are web-borne, the web filtering module provides vital protection against a wide range of web-based attacks.

Features include:

  • Malicious URL Filtering: Leveraging Sunbelt's industry-leading ThreatTrack™ database of malicious URLs, Malicious URL Filtering provides a significant additional layer of protection against the rapidly evolving online threat environment. Constantly updated by Sunbelt's malware research labs, ThreatTrack is used by numerous leading security organizations.
  • Ad blocking: Ad blocking cleans the clutter on the web, blocking many third-party advertisements from ever appearing while surfing.
  • Anti-phishing: Blocks access to known phishing websites by email or through the web browser.
  • Script blocking: Optionally block Javascript, VBScript and ActiveX controls.
  • Cookie settings: Filter persistent cookies, session cookies, foreign cookies and referral information from an originating website.
IDS (Intrusion Detection System): The desktop IDS functionality of VIPRE provides an additional layer of protection against a wide range of both inbound and outbound malicious internet traffic (such as an attempted exploit).

HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention): The HIPS functionality protects against an attack vector known as code injection, where an application attempts to "ride-along" the credentials of another application to exploit a system.
