VIPRE Internet Security
VIPRE Internet Security has evolved into what is today a reliable antivirus and anti-spam shield that sports an improved detection engine, as well as a few new monitors for emails and social network activity.
Wrapped inside a streamlined and very user-friendly interface, VIPRE Internet Security boasts all the essential features that a security suite must include in order to be efficient and computer friendly.
The real-time monitor actively inspects the traffic on your computer, detecting everything that might pose the risk of an infection.
The scan modules include a quick mode (checks common locations on the computer), while the deep mode carries out an in-depth analysis and takes longer to complete, obviously. Custom scans are also an option, allowing you to add an unlimited number of files and folders to the scan queue.
Incoming and outgoing Internet traffic is monitored constantly with the aid of the two-way firewall, while the spam filter safeguards your inbox against spam and phishing attempts.
Malicious websites are immediately blocked and a safer web experience is guaranteed by the Search Guard feature that identifies online threats before they access your computer.
It also keeps tabs on Facebook news feeds while also providing a few privacy protection tools such as the history cleaner and the secure file eraser that shreds data beyond recovery.
Last, but not least, the Auto-Patch feature automatically updates the programs installed on the PC, identifying the vulnerabilities that could cause a security breach.
On an ending note, 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.
