The Dr.Web AV-Desk deployment is this Nikopol (Dnepropetrovsk region) provider’s first-ever experience using an anti-virus Internet service. The company decided on the Doctor Web solution because of the ease of integrating it with the existing infrastructure, the quality of technical support (for both the provider and its subscribers), the reliability of the Internet service, and flexible billing that satisfies the needs of a wide range of users.
Four subscription packages are available to the ISP’s subscribers. With Dr.Web Premium, users get comprehensive protection against viruses and spam enhanced with an HTTP monitor and Parental Control features. The Dr.Web Standard package includes anti-virus and anti-spam, while Dr.Web Classic provides subscribers with basic anti-virus protection. The Dr.Web Premium Server is designed to provide comprehensive protection of Microsoft Windows Server 2003/2008-based platforms, and will come handy in small businesses.
"It took us a little while — just a week — to deploy Dr.Web AV-Desk in our company. Now, Mainstream customers do not have to put significant effort into finding a reliable anti-virus. They do not need to go and buy a boxed version or seek specialist online shops. They can easily subscribe to the Dr.Web Anti-virus service in the private subscription area as they are paying for Internet access", said Maxim Petrov, Mainstream system administrator.
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. 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.
Founded in 1997, Mainstream is by far the largest Internet operator in Nikopol (Ukraine). Among the company's customers are most of Nikopol’s home Internet users as well as large industrial enterprises, banks, educational institutions and government agencies. The ISP's subscriber base numbers about 10,000.
