Cylance Smart Antivirus

It is a good and smart tool not only for small firms but
also for large ones. The speed of action as well as the smooth working of this
tool makes this tool worth buying. We have been using it for a long time, and we haven’t encountered any threat so far. However, when it comes to its pricing, it
is not so suitable for us and needs to be less.

VIPRE

Robust protection with a small footprint. Catches all malware and viruses, while respecting the exclusions put in place by our organization. Pricing was very aggressive compared to other products. Great management application, where you can manage the installations and even update third-party apps on those machines from that portal. Great product for a great price.

Cons

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Its subscription charges need to be declined.
  • We had faced some bugs but they get resolved with the new update.
  • There is little information and details related to the threats and I think this needs to be improved.

VIPRE

  • When using older versions of Outlook I have seen the plugin cause sluggish behavior and hangs, in 2007 and 2010 versions specifically.
  • For some business applications, there are .dll's and libraries and application .exe's that can be misidentified as virus or trojans. While it is fairly easy to whitelist these once discovered, new implementors should be aware that they will need to carefully look through their initial virus scan reports to find and whitelist these items.

VIPRE is very easy to use and administer. You have a lot of functionality from the server on what you can do with the clients. It has proved useful when I can't access a client any other way. I can reboot the computer from the server and then usually get back into that machine.

VIPRE support is usually pretty quick. Sometimes you have to get a lot of information to send back so they can see the issue. This has not been too bad and I understand why it's needed. VIPRE also has a free rescue tool that is very useful and easy to use. There have been others but VIPRE seems to keep theirs updated. It's my go-to even outside of work.

Alternatives Considered

Cylance Smart Antivirus

We switched to Cylance Smart Antivirus almost a year ago. Before that, we were using Avast Business Antivirus which was kind of an absurd experience for us. First of
all Avast Business Antivirus was a heavyweight software, and as a repercussion, it interrupted our
system’s normal workings. Because of that, we had to pay a high cost as we
were not able to do anything else while scanning.

We got a chance to buy AVG Business edition and we tried to install that throughout our organization and most specifically to our important systems but it was not compatible with a majority of them and we found AVG as high-demand software with a mediocre speed of action and more pricing. So in comparison to AVG, VIPRE is good in all aspects.

  • The VIPRE MSP program cost effectively lets me integrate protection into every endpoint I protect.
  • Integration with ConnectWise for deployment and billing has increased our revenue.
  • Integration with ConnectWise for management means we keep endpoint protection coverage consistently above 99% to secure our clients.
