Dr.Web AV-Desk enables NTS Real company providing Internet access in the Russian city of Astrakhan to deliver its subscribers reliable protection against malware.
Doctor Web became the first company on the Russian anti-virus market that offered its customers anti-virus and anti-spam protection as a service delivered to subscribers by numerous ISPs on the vast territory of Russian Federation and in other CIS countries.
Following the deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk by the NTS Real company the new model of obtaining an anti-virus as a service was implemented in the Astrakhan region
High infected traffic in networks and numerous complaints from subscribers drove NTS Real to seek help from Doctor Web. “Viruses and spam-bots were found regularly on machines of some of our customers. When the testing started, we offered them to subscribe to the Dr.Web anti-virus and no malware was detected on their machines ever since. The workload of our technical support service was reduced and our technicians gained opportunity to assist other customers asking for help. Now we intent to deliver the Dr.Web anti-virus service to all our subscribers giving priority to business customers that have not adopted any anti-virus product. Besides, we want to tell them about benefits of the product so those who are using another anti-virus would migrate to Dr.Web AV-Desk so we could monitor and neutralize viral activities on all hosts in our network. The testing showed that centralized monitoring and prompt responding to threats is the most efficient way to maintain anti-virus security”, Alexandeer Trunov, the head of the technical support of NTS Real commented upon rcompletion of the testing.
