Vipre Anti Virus to make waves locally BY MIOR AZHAR

WITH THE RECENT APPOINTMENT of a Malaysian master representative, US-based Sunbelt Software’s Vipre Anti-Virus solutions are set to become a significant name in the local security solutions market. The Malaysian master representative Whizsolutions Hybrid Sdn Bhd is currently actively looking for distributors and partners to help market various Sunbelt’s security solutions, most notably the Vipre Anti-Virus software. ‘We are aiming to go big to introduce the solutions in the local market and for that we need to work closely with reliable distributors and partners,’ says Whizsolutions Hybrid chief executive officer Mohd Kurniawan Zakaria. As a principal, Whizsolutions is inviting those interested to partner them to capture Malaysia’s still growing security market share. ‘As the market for Sunbelt products is relatively new locally, we believe partners stand a good chance to gain a lot of mileage and enjoy significant revenues,’ he says, adding those interested can contact them at 0321499338. Its director of sales Shahren Abdul Malek informs that Sunbelt and Whizsolutions have constructed a comprehensive partnership programme for partners where they will be provided with in depth training and will be assisted in selling, technical know-how and marketing drive. For the local market, Whizsolutions has set its target to seize both the enterprise and retail market spaces. According Shahren, for the enterprise segment, the Sunbelt offerings will include Vipre Enterprise, Sunbelt Exchange archiver, Sunbelt File archiver, CounterSpy Enterprise, Sunbelt Network Inspector, and Vipre Email Security for Exchange.

‘For the retail market, we are focusing itself on the flagship solution, Vipre,’ he adds. He also says that the company is set to offer a very attractive priced anti-virus package especially for the small and medium businesses in Malaysia. Vipre (which stands for Virus Intrusion Protection Remediation Engine) combines anti virus, anti spyware, anti-rootkit and other technologies into a seamless, tightly integrated product. ‘Built with next-generation technology, it is a powerful anti virus and anti spyware software in-one that protects you against today’s highly complex malware threats including viruses, adware, spyware and rootkits, without hogging your PC resources like many traditional anti virus products,’ explains Kurniawan. VIPRE includes comprehensive protection against email viruses, with direct support for Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail; and support for any email program that uses POP3 and SMTP. According to Kurniawan, as Sunbelt Software and Whizsolutions understand technology issues that impact the system administrator, they have developed the solutions to increase administration management efficiencies as well as mitigate

risks to an organisation’s technology infrastructure. ‘It is also the culture of Sunbelt’s to regularly consult the customers and offers quality technical support and troubleshooting for all its products. Working to provide quick and effective resolution, Sunbelt ensures minimal downtime for our customers and a high rate of customer satisfaction,’ he explains, adding that Whizsolutions hopes to emulate similar arrangement in the Malaysian market.
