Bloatware causes more problems than viruses or malware. Server and workstation performance slows to a crawl. End user productivity suffers. Our administrators spend countless hours troubleshooting problems and reconfiguring the anti-virus software. I can't remember the last time we got infected with a virus. Bloatware, though, rears its ugly head on a regular basis.
That statement by Andrew Baker, typifies the conundrum confronting businesses on a consistent basis.
To counter the latest threats, market leaders like Symantec simply stack new layers of functionality on top of their existing engines. The result: the ever expanding code bases of the leading anti-virus/anti-spyware packages invariably result in bloatware. This is more problematic for small and midsize companies to handle due to their lack of administrative resources to locate and resolve this type of attack on their networks.
The solution to bloatware is a better, more efficient product that is specifically engineered to scan, detect, and remove the myriad security threats without impacting performance and taking a big bite out of the IT capital expenditure budgets.
Sunbelt Software's new VIPRE Enterprise package is ideally suited to combating legacy and new blended malware threats from traditional viruses to the newest spam and Trojans.
