Vipre and Kaspersky and AVG
Posted on 2014-04-09
We use AVG Antivirus Business, but soon they will switch all accounts to Cloud based. I don't like cloud based. So I started looking at others, now I downloaded and testing Vipre Business Antivirus. I installed agents on three computers, need to see how it works for a week.
Admin console looks good, easy to navigate.
I can install Vipre agent on clients without modifying underlying Windows firewall.
It finishes manual scans quickly.
After a few hours of testing, it seems blocking, but it just passed through some malware websites that AVG detected.
But I noticed after installing Vipre, one of computer (Windows 8.1, AMD FX-8150, AsRock motherboard), didn't like to boot, it went to Windows Repair. Then it booted up, I restarted PC again, it failed to boot for 3 times, but finally did. Also, Outlook seems hanging from time to time. I disabled email scanning on the policy, it's ok now.
If you currently use Vipre at your network to cover workstations and servers, can you share your experience? How about Kaspersky if you used?
I also tested free version of Bitdefender, it also just passes through which AVG detected problems. AV-Compartives show Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Vipre all ranked higher than AVG, but I think it's just for antiviru testing they conducted, not spyware, malware mostly spread by visiting websites.
The reason I chose to test Vipre was, its performance consuming less resource, and that part seems true. How about Kaspersky?
