It is unfortunate
but another company Webroot SecureAnywhere has purchased PrevX.
As you know we have
been adding the free Trial version of PrevX to most every computer we have
installed or added to any networks over the past few years. For
many clients the upgrade was made to the full version with a yearly fee.
The new company is
repackaging PrevX with a different look and feel, as well as, a new higher price point.
End of Life for Prevx will be June 2012 sometime.
company is saying they do not want to leave us without protection so they are willing to
renew PrevX for the same rate as last year
for a one-time renewal. After that we do not
know what the cost will be or the purchasing process. So we will have to make a determination if it
is worth it on a case by case basis.
We are testing the
full package of the product now and will let you know what we find.
In the meantime, should your PrevX come up for renewal and begin to give you popup alerts about
it, please select "do not remind me about this again" from the list
and that should stop the annoyance factor. We will be in to upgrade the expiring licenses just as soon as possible.
You will notice, once the renewal install has been done, the PrevX green icon will be replaced by a new green circle icon with a W in it.
