Sunbelt Software Announces Aggressive Black Friday Pricing for Antivirus Product

VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware Will Be on a 1-Day Sale for $9.95

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced an unprecedented price cut on its top-selling high-performance security product, VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware™ starting Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving), November 28, 2008. A single one-year subscription license is being offered for $9.95, close to 70% off the normal $29.95 retail price. Users that desire more than one user license can also take advantage of a flat $20 discount on any other VIPRE licensing option, including the unlimited home site license where all PCs in a single household are protected with a single site license.

The holidays invariably increase the risk of cyber attacks with increased online shopping activity during this time. The Black Friday special is being offered in an effort to encourage PC users to protect against more complex and malicious spyware threats with VIPRE's powerful anti-malware protection while eliminating the performance and resource headaches of many older, traditional antivirus products.

VIPRE combines antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit and other technologies into a seamless, tightly-integrated product. An antivirus product is useless if the user uninstalls it due to frustration with high system resource usage, slow boot times, endless popups and, worse, an inability to deal effectively with certain types of malware. VIPRE is designed to be a high-performance product, with broad-ranging detection and remediation of viruses, trojans, worms, and spyware.

"Cyber-criminals and malware writers are aware of changes in consumers' online spending habits this time of year and are working diligently to trick unsuspecting PC users in an attempt to steal information," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "Sunbelt hopes this special offer will drive people to secure their desktops with industry-leading antivirus for $9.95 that doesn't slow down their PC while helping to ensure internet browsing and online shopping can be a safe activity."

PC users can take a number of steps to protect them online during the holiday season. Sunbelt encourages consumers to make sure to install all the latest updates and patches for software including up-to-date malware protection.

Availability and Licensing

The VIPRE Black Friday special buy is available for $9.95 and includes all of the features, toll-free support, and updates of a standard subscription. Users that desire more than one user license can also take advantage of a flat $20 discount on any other VIPRE licensing option. To take advantage of this special pricing, users can go to Sunbelt Software's VIPRE Black Friday website at

Special pricing is available from midnight through 11:59pm on Friday, November 28, 2008.
