Company Background

The anti-malware products by VIPRE are established by a leading cyber security institution founded in 1994 called ThreatTrack Security Inc., originally called GFI Software, who create innovative and advanced defense packages and solutions for IT users, businesses, government agencies, and home users.

GFI Software bought Sunbelt Software Inc. who focus on leading solutions for Windows users. This company has a lot of cyber security solutions under its belt like CounterSpy which is an anti-spyware software and iHateSpam, an email security product.

In 2008 the VIPRE product line was released which combined anti-spyware and anti-malware into a small-footprint and unified antivirus solution. Today, VIPRE protects millions of PC users around the world.

The latest version is ThreatTrack Vipre Advanced Security which is known to have good anti-phishing protection and malicious URL blocking.
