Roaming Agent Technology: The VIPRE Roaming Service helps manage computers that are off-site. What happens when administrators have difficulty ensuring network security because they have little to no control over the business antivirus agents outside of their reach? Outside of their organizations server? From remote offices where they have no connection, as well as road warriors using Laptops (that are no longer connected to the organizations network)? How does the admin get status on those computers? How can the admin verify that those machines received threat definition updates or policy updates? The answer is the VIPRE Roaming Service! This feature permits the admin to get status on those off site computers, enabling those computers to verify threat definition updates / policy updates, detection scans, and more have taken place by connection via web.
Threat Track has Servers in the cloud that now provide the link between the management console and the Agents themselves. Roaming Agents can now report scan results to the server. Now policy updates and threat definitions can be ‘pushed’ down to agents through the VIPRE Roaming Service. All of this communication is secure, traveling over https, so no Firewall changes and configurations are required.
This benefits organizations that have satellite locations, road warriors and remote users, as well as service providers who do not want to install servers at client locations.
Unprotected Computer Alert Technology: This is an analytical advancement used to detect, identify, and alert the admin of computers without VIPRE’s protection. This is vital when you think your network is protected (even if VIPRE is installed) but no agents are found in the local agent catalog. Now the admin of VIPRE can know which computers have a VIPRE agent managed by a central console, and which computers do not.
Automatic Policy Assignment: Used to detect what type of computer VIPRE is being deployed to and assist with configuring. This is helpful so that the appropriate Default Policy (exclusions and configurations) can be applied based on what type of machine has been detected.
Mobile Device Management: In order to protect a network from smartphones and tablet computers, VIPRE has updated protections for both iOS and Android platforms. In addition to detecting mobile devices, remote locking and wiping technologies, VIPRE Mobile Device Management can now clear device passcodes from the console, it can do Factory Resetting, and also perform Wireless Network Management features.
