Maker of VIPRE Antivirus opens Development Center in Taguig

Have you heard of VIPRE Antivirus? Nope? Me neither until today so consider yourself informed. I guess they’re not among the popular brands when it comes to antivirus. Well popular or not, its developer, GFI Software just announced the opening of its Advanced Technology Development Center located at Taguig City, Philippines. GFI Software considers themselves as pioneers in anti-malware protection which is their core strength.

Formerly known as Sunbelt Software Philippines, Inc., GFI Software Philippines Inc.’s new 6,000 square foot facility will operate as center for research and development of VIPRE® antivirus technology, and also add local customer support capabilities. This will translate to more jobs for Filipinos as the company plans to increase its employee base by more than 50 percent over the next year.

“œThe Philippines is a growing hotbed of technology development, and GFI Software recognizes the opportunity to leverage its local talent to stay at the forefront of antivirus innovation,” said Dan Lorch, General Manager, GFI Software Philippines, Inc. “œIn order to meet our goals, we will need to fill positions in the coming months both in security research and customer support operations.
