    In a few days my PrevX 2 (yes, it's 2) license will expire.

    Should i choose to stay with version 2, is it still available for renewal?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Prevx 2 is still available to renew if customers wish to do so - but we would always recommend upgrading to Prevx 3.0 whenever possible, as this features much improved malware detection and cleanup capabilities compared to Prevx 2.

    The only "benefits" Prevx 2 currently has over 3, are the granular controls which more advanced users seemed to use - which have been stripped from Prevx 3.0 in order to provide a much simpler "set and forget" approach, which suits the vast majority of our userbase.

    Therefore, in summarisation - I would strongly recommend upgrading to Prevx 3.0 unless you couldn't live without the manual controls Prevx 2.0 provided :)

    Please upgrade to Prevx 3.
    Prevx 2 is not supported.

    Many thanks for your answer.

    I would've liked to continue using a product with Prevx2 granularity control............still i followed your advice and activated a prevx3 license.

    Many thanks for your quick reply :)

    :doubt:
    Thought you implied previously that detection/cleanup was not different or at least implied that PX2 'engine' was going to be updated.
    - Cloud detection/db the same ??
    - Just decisions/pop-ups less ??
    - CSI the current detection engine or now junked..?

    :shifty: You just trying to rattle my cage a bit:
    :eek: am I the last hold out?

    Prevx2 is able to leverage the detection improvements brought on by Prevx3 by seeing the same resulting determinations from the additional data gathered by Prevx3, however, Prevx3 provides additional protection over Prevx2 in the form of age/popularity detection and new centralized heuristics (as well as less popups).

    CSI and Edge have been branded/combined into Prevx 3.0, the engine is the same but we merged the products because of the massive amounts of overlap.

    Close to the last :D

    Thanks :D If it's any consolation, you could actually run Prevx 3 unlicensed alongside Prevx 2 - that way you'll cover any possible missed detection with virtually no additional overhead :)
