Doctor Web – a Russian developer of IT security tools branded Dr.Web – announces introduction of the Dr.Web anti-virus service by ADVANTAGE TELECOM providing Internet in cities and towns to the north of Moscow. Since November customers of the ISP will be using the service free of charge for two months.
ADVANTAGE TELECOM is a leader on the telecom market in several towns north of Moscow. Meainwhile, aiming to increase loyalty of existing customers and attract new ones the company expands the list of available services offered to customers along with access to the Internet.
Here anti-virus security is one of the key issues. A user unaware of the threat can also endanger others especially if a network and its hosts are not protected by an anti-virus. The result is disrupted connection to the Internet and growing annoyance of customers who can’t get any help from the support service of an ISP.
Dr.Web AV-Desk helps Advantage Telecom avoid such problems. The deployment of the Internet service brings comprehensive anti-virus protection to all its subscribers who will be using the service free of charge for two months.
“Safe Internet surfing for subscribers is our main objective. Striving for better security we adopt best technologies provided by the industry. That’s why we adopted Dr.Web AV-Desk that shows perfect results protecting a large number of users against various types of malicious programs”, Alexei Shmonov, the IT-director of ADVANTAGE TELECOM commented upon preliminary results of the deployment.
