November 23, 2009

CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ — Sunbelt Software today announced that its VIPRE® Enterprise product was named as a gold medal winner of the “2009 Community Choice Awards” in the Best Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware Product category by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro® magazine.

“The 2009 Community Choice Awards had a record number of entries this year. Thousands of products were nominated by our audience of IT professionals. Peer-to-peer product and service recognition is the ultimate goal that all market players have, but it can be difficult to achieve,” said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director.

“Our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine communities even the playing field by calling out their favorite products based on performance and service. We counted only those votes accompanied by a valid and unique email address, thereby preventing multiple entries per person. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”

Its award-winning, VIPRE Enterprise product seamlessly integrates antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit and other technologies into a comprehensive anti-malware solution that delivers powerful endpoint security. User surveys show the biggest frustration with alternative anti-malware solutions is bloat and high resource usage. Built from scratch as an all-in-one antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit engine, VIPRE’s high-performance total malware protection is a revolutionary approach to endpoint security that is not a resource hog and runs seamlessly without impairing system performance.

“Sunbelt prides itself on providing anti-malware solutions designed by admins for admins and is honored to have received this award and industry recognition from IT professionals themselves,” said, Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. “Sunbelt remains dedicated to offering state of the art next-generation endpoint security solutions and will continue to address our customers’ most pressing concerns related to efficiency and performance.”
