Another 17 Russian cities get anti-virus as a service with Dr.Web AV-Desk

May 5, 2008

Doctor Web, Ltd. and Ertelecom CJSC complete Dr.Web AV-Desk tryout and move to the commercial stage of the project.

A reliable protection against viruses and spam by Dr.Web anti-virus becomes available in 17 Russian cities in one go.

Dr.Web AV-Desk is the first Internet service by Doctor Web, Ltd. The service targets ISPs and can be used to deliver anti-virus protection to an unlimited number of subscribers – both home users and companies – and provides a mechanism for centralized management of the service delivery. It is a robust and efficient tool supplying anti-virus and anti-spam protection to users regardless of their geographical location.

The test run of Dr.Web AV-Desk has been conducted by Ertelecom CJSC since January 25, 2008. Subscribers of DOM.RU used Dr.Web anti-virus free of charge for several months.

“The feedback upon testing the service in Penza was very positive - Egor Guriev, the “Digital content distribution” project manager tells - It took us two months to test it. During this period about 10 per cent of our subscribers installed Dr.Web AV-Desk. In fact we hardly tried to promote the service. It is people themselves telling each other about the service, sharing their experience on forums. We used the feedback to fix errors and find weak points. Our staff in cooperation with Dr.Web experts made necessary corrections for the service to fulfill demands of subscribers.

The program is amazingly intelligent.You just need to install the anti-virus on your computer. After that you only read update notifications, nothing else. All routines are automated, so the program fully complies with the pay&forget principle. Today it is the key to a success on the market. I would also like to mention the interest of users in the scheme of the service provision, the innovative approach to anti-virus protection interested the major part of the target group. Now we launch Dr.Web AV-Desk in every city we are working in and expect even better results. In the nearest future we will focus on providing the service for free to all our users with unlimited Internet acess plans and on selling the anit-virus on credit.

“We do appreciate great work done by our partners from Ertelecom Holding to implement the project.” - Boris Sharov, the Doctor Web, Ltd. CEO said.

All subscribers of DOM.RU will be able to activate Dr.Web anti-virus protection subscription at USD 2.5 fee – much cheaper than buying an anti-virus in a box. New subscribers of DOM.RU who didn’t participate the testing will be able to use the service free of charge till the end of a of their activation month and get one extra free month.

“Cooperation with Ertelecom Holding CJSC is very important to us because it means that one of the largest telecom holdings of Russia trusts Dr.Web AV-Desk” – Boris Sharov, the Doctor Web, Ltd. CEO comments. - Dr.Web anti-virus service is available for a huge region. And that means that several hundred thousand computers will become virus free. We highly value efforts of our partners form Ertelecom Holding who made anti-virus protection available to all users regardless of their income level”.

May will see Dr.Web anti-virus service accessible to all customers of DOM.RU in 17 cities of Russia.
