Sunbelt Software Announces New Version of CounterSpy Enterprise

Version 3.0 Delivers New Management Dashboards, Reporting Improvements and Console Usability Enhancements

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced the release of CounterSpy Enterprise™ version 3.0. The new version continues to provide robust protection against complex malware threats for corporate environments while delivering several new features, including new management dashboards, reporting improvements, and console usability enhancements.

As in the previous version, CounterSpy Enterprise is powered by a hybrid engine that merges classic spyware detection and remediation with Sunbelt's VIPRE™ technology, which incorporates both traditional antivirus and cutting-edge antimalware techniques. This combination of technologies provides fast scanning and light resource usage, while delivering more effective detection and remediation of today's increasingly complex and blended threats.

New, configurable management dashboards

With CounterSpy Enterprise 3.0, administrators can easily create a customized "malware command center" that gives instant access to their most used reports and policy controls. The management console now provides four customizable dashboards for at-a-glance views of scanning and remediation activities that show overall network health and performance. An all-new library of interface widgets allows drag and drop customization of reports, agent status information, severity threat levels by policy, scanning history, and other components displayed by the CounterSpy Enterprise dashboards. With easy access to information, the dashboards enable administrators to optimize the performance and operations of their network.

Reporting improvements

New reporting features make it easier for administrators to schedule and customize CounterSpy Enterprise's library of reports. A new report scheduler allows administrators to easily schedule any report to run at a designated time with the ability to email reports to specified users; simplifying report distribution to management. Additionally, a new custom report editor enables administrators to modify existing reports or create their own reports to display an infinite combination of agent information available from within CounterSpy Enterprise.

Console usability enhancements

CounterSpy Enterprise 3.0 also features usability enhancements that offer easier-to-understand alerts and customizable views within the console grids. Visual indicators are now included to show security risk status of detected malware threats by agent, making it faster and easier to determine what machines within the network have been infected. Customizable grid views provide a variety of different column headings which can be displayed within the console grids to show the most relevant agent information based on administrator preference. Additionally, administrators have the ability to "drill down" on individual agent summary information including scan history and quarantine.

Pricing and availability

CounterSpy Enterprise is priced aggressively for all corporate environments and includes one year of support, updates, and product upgrades. The upgrade to CounterSpy Enterprise version 3.0 is free to all existing customers of CounterSpy Enterprise who are currently under a maintenance plan. New customers can purchase CounterSpy Enterprise on a per machine basis. Pricing includes the first year maintenance and starts at $155.00 for 5 machines with a sliding scale discount based on number of machines. A 30-day trial version of CounterSpy Enterprise is available on Sunbelt Software's website at www.sunbeltsoftware.com.
