BTW: Here’s a couple interesting pieces from the VIPRE FAQ…

  • Does this product scale? Can I support 20,000 users?  The default database for storing information is an Access MDB file (no need to install Access). Alternatively you can specify any MSSQL 2000 server or above including MSDE and SQL Express as the location data is kept, and this easily supports 20,000 users. You may need to spread this over several servers to balance the load though. Polling can be configured as can the location where the definitions are pulled from. We have one customer running 14,000 users on one server with ease.
  • Can I use SMS or ConfigMgr to deploy the client?  The agent can be created as both an MSI file and executable, you can also use SMS, login scripts, or even a webpage to download the agent to any workstation.

So, how does VIPRE compare to the other AV products?
