I’m not someone who changes my antivirus program every single year; I prefer to find a solution I like and stick with it until it becomes obvious there’s something better on the market. For the past couple years, Kaspersky has been my preferred solution, but that may be changing next time my license comes due.
When it comes to antivirus software, I’m willing to spend a bit more of a superior technology is in play; that’s why I chose Kaspersky a couple years ago. But it’s the most expensive solution on the market, and I only get one license for it. Sure, it’s the best on the market. But perhaps that’s not the case anymore.
Sun Belt Software has released a new technology called Vipre Antivirus, and for about half the price of Kaspersky, it offers an unlimited home site license – meaning as long as it’s a home computer, I could put it on both my wife’s desktop and laptop, as well as my desktop and laptop, all for one low price. That’s quick attractive. No one else offers that. Sure, a single-user license is still cheaper at $29.99; but for $49.99, to cover all four of my household computers? That’s a huge savings. HUGE!
But more importantly, it uses fewer system resources than anything else out on the market, while offering some new virus-preventing technologies that no one else – not even Kaspersky – has caught up to yet. As long as they offer hourly virus definition updates like Kaspersky, I believe Sun Belt Software’s Vipre Antivirus may become my new solution!
I’ll want to make sure once March rolls around, but I have a feeling it’s time to switch.
