The agreement includes the GFI VIPRE Business Edition the GFI VIPRE Business Lifetime solution, which are being launched into the UK SME market through the channel.
GFI VIPRE Business Lifetime offers business users the first opportunity to buy a lifetime endpoint protection solution, doing away with the need to renew the license annually. Another key feature of VIPRE Business is high performance which doesn't slow down computer speed.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: "We're delighted to be partnering with GFI on VIPRE Business solutions, which offer some innovative technology and are ideal for the SME space. This deal presents some great opportunities for our resellers, particularly with the Lifetime license solution, which give resellers license fees upfront, rather than being staggered over several years. This should be welcome in the current economic climate."
The GFI VIPRE Business product line provides seamless, tightly integrated security solutions that deliver antivirus and anti spyware protection, client firewall, and malicious web site filtering technologies that protect against the ever-changing and sophisticated wave of malware in a comprehensive, highly efficient manner.
