Metroset relies on Dr.Web Anti-virus to protect its customers

February 25, 2011

Doctor Web is pleased to announce the deployment of the Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service by Metroset — a telecom service provider operating in several cities throughout the Ural Federal District. Metroset now provides its customers with the Dr.Web Anti-virus service, which allows them to enjoy super-fast and worry-free Internet access.

The Dr.Web Premium subscription package—a service that provides PCs with comprehensive protection from viruses, spam, and malware found on risky and untrustworthy websites—is included with a subscription to the 'Unlimited' subscription package. With a '1-Mbit' package, a subscription to the Dr.Web Classic package is available (anti-virus only).

With Dr.Web Premium, in addition to fast, fail-safe Internet access, subscribers get comprehensive PC protection that includes a web anti-virus to block untrustworthy connections and a Parental Control module to restrict access to specific websites either manually or using pre-set blacklists.

The Dr.Web Anti-virus service is very easy to use — a subscriber doesn't need to worry about license registration and renewal because all operations are managed via the Metroset personal subscriber area. It takes just a few minutes to install the service software; once in operation, the anti-virus is virtually undetectable to users and sparing in its use of system resources. If necessary, users can contact the Doctor Web technical support service directly via the program interface.

Metroset specialists had used Dr.Web products before, so their choice of Dr.Web AV-Desk was grounded in previous experience. Even during the initial internal testing stage, they noted the convenience of the administrator interface and the service’s rich functionality.

"The service was deployed as quickly as possible and with no difficulties. We are expecting a big influx of subscriptions to the Dr.Web Anti-virus service— not only because it’s free but also because of the convenience and security it provides, and the availability of the Parental Control feature is a huge draw right now", remarked Marat Moullakaev, Metroset Managing Director. About the Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service.

About the Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service

Doctor Web was the first anti-virus vendor to offer an anti-virus as a service on the Russian market.

The deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk lets a service provider’s subscribers use the Dr.Web Anti-virus as a service: they can choose how long they want to subscribe, renew their subscriptions automatically, and that means, they can decide for themselves how much they want to spend on anti-virus security. Providing an anti-virus as a service ensures its instant delivery and easy subscription management for home and business customers. The Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service was created by Doctor Web in 2007. Today, the number of service providers delivering the Dr.Web AV-Desk service in different regions of Russia and in the Ukraine, France, Spain, Netherlands, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria and Estonia exceeds 250. Following results shown by the service in 2007, Dr.Web AV-Desk was named “best product offered as a service” by PC Magazine Russia. In September 2008, Dr.Web AV-Desk was awarded the Grand Gold Medal for ”most original scientific and technical solution in communications technology” at the ITE Siberian Fair.
