A New Standard of Protection for QWERTY Subscribers

May 16, 2011

Doctor Web, Russia’s leading provider of Internet antivirus security services, reports on the transition of Central Telegraph, a major Russian telecom operator, to Dr.Web AV-Desk version 5.0.1. The company's most important project, a unified QWERTY network, provides Internet users with the widest range of services, including one in which Dr.Web Anti-virus plays a key role.

Now, anti-virus and anti-spam protection, based on the Dr.Web version 5.0 kernel, is available to QWERTY subscribers as a subscription to the Dr.Web Standard package. Dr.Web Anti-virus service subscribers have at their disposal a reliable tool to protect their PCs against malware and junk mail — for only 79 roubles a month.

When first connecting to the service, subscribers enjoy a free one-month testing period after which their paid subscription begins. After that, the subscription renews automatically provided sufficient funds are available in the subscriber account. The subscription can be suspended if necessary.

Soon, Central Telegraph plans to provide an option to subscribe to other Dr.Web Anti-virus subscription packages: Dr.Web Classic (anti-virus only), Dr.Web Premium (comprehensive protection) and Dr.Web Premium Server (ultimate protection for Windows-based server platforms). After the new packages are launched, the HTTP monitor and Parental Control modules will be available to users, leaving no chance for malicious programs to invade PCs and make life miserable for their owners.

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 users 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.
