This announcement marks the first in a series of rebranding efforts and new product releases that will fall under Sunbelt's VIPRE anti-malware product line, with integrated offerings that include the company's full line of email security, antivirus, and endpoint protection products for enterprise and consumer customers.
VIPRE for Exchange leverages the scanning engine from Sunbelt's VIPRE endpoint security products. The engine is a comprehensive anti-malware engine that merges the detection of all types of malware into a single, efficient, and powerful system. The scanning technology was exclusively built by Sunbelt, without building on older generation antivirus engines and addresses the performance and resource headaches associated with traditional enterprise antivirus products.
"Sunbelt's strength is in providing products that enable system administrators to implement a layered security approach that maximizes spam and virus protection for today's corporate email environments," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "VIPRE for Exchange provides a robust defense against a variety of email threats without compromising Exchange server stability and performance."
