VIPRE Security today announced the launch of VIPRE Endpoint Security – Cloud Edition, an innovative endpoint security cloud solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The new product is the first in a series of offerings designed to bring the full portfolio of VIPRE products to the cloud to be delivered as services, with the goal of making it easier for channel partners and businesses to stop cyberattacks.
By utilizing VIPRE’s machine learning engine driven by behavior analysis as an additional active protective layer, VIPRE Cloud builds on a solid, efficient foundation to deliver the best malware detection in the industry as shown in independent testing. With more than 20 years of experience and extensive threat intelligence capabilities, VIPRE’s cloud endpoint solution delivers protection against the widest array of threats from the most prevalent malware to the latest evasive strains, immediately alerting users of any threats so they can quickly analyze and stop attacks. And with a broader and deeper view of computing environments, identifying any compromised hosts and delivering vital information happens quickly.
Today’s threat landscape continues to grow increasingly more complex and sophisticated, with attacks being launched on SMBs at an alarming rate. VIPRE recently commissioned a survey of 250 SMB IT managers which found that:
Nearly a quarter of respondents (23 percent) reported that they experience cyberattacks daily.
66 percent indicated they would either go out of business or shut down for a day or more if systems and/or data are compromised.
In order to demonstrate to upper management that the company is protected from cyberattacks, 68 percent of IT managers indicated they are tasked with generating security reports, yet 47 percent indicate they have to manually collect data from various sources and only 41 percent have access to an online security dashboard.
“The surge in cloud-hosted and as-a-service anti-malware solutions is undeniable, and our partners and business users are increasingly looking to move services to the cloud to capitalize on various benefits like decreased cost, increased performance and access from anywhere,” said Usman Choudhary, Vice President of Product Development at VIPRE. “With the launch of VIPRE Cloud, our mission is to leverage our existing, proven, battle-tested agent technology to deliver advanced endpoint and email security solutions as seamless and integrated SaaS services built from the ground up on Amazon AWS, the most reliable and secure cloud platform, to effectively protect and secure mid-market businesses from emerging cyber threats and today’s most prevalent security risks.”
The new VIPRE Cloud product boasts a number of capabilities and benefits, including:
· Security visibility: Dynamic dashboards with interactive visualization and powerful timeline views allow for immediate threat detection, analysis and remediation for active protection
· Operational efficiency: Automated updates and real-time displays of system health aid in intelligent decision-making, based on actionable data.
