Dr.Web AV-Desk 6.0 — New Features for Users and Providers

June 8, 2011

The Russian market leader of Internet anti-virus security services, Doctor Web, announces the release of Dr.Web AV-Desk 6.0. Now subscribers of the Dr.Web Anti-virus service can access all of the new security components and functionality already included in Dr.Web 6.0 for Windows personal products, while advanced anti-virus network administration tools are available to service providers. Furthermore, a wide range of subscription payment options is available as is the free transition from one subscription package to another within the Internet service regardless of whether this expands the functionality (in cases where these features are implemented by an ISP).

Thanks to the inclusion of the SpIDer Guard G3 file monitor in the Dr.Web AV-Desk software, the operation of anti-virus agents is now fully supported on 64-bit versions of OS Windows (including those on servers). However, Windows NT4/9x/ME for agents are no longer supported

All of the Dr.Web Anti-virus service subscription packages feature a new component, a firewall, which allows users to monitor and filter all incoming and outgoing Internet traffic at both the application and packet level. The Dr.Web for MS Outlook module, which checks e-mail transmitted by the Microsoft e-mail program, is also available to subscribers.

Nevertheless, the monthly subscription fee, as recommended by Doctor Web, has remained the same: Dr.Web Classic — €1.3, Dr.Web Standard — €1.5, Dr.Web Premium — €1.65, and Dr.Web Premium Server — €10.

An important innovation for subscribers, whose providers have the Subscription Control Center installed, has been the introduction of additional payment options: it is now possible to refill balances using various e-payment systems.

A series of improvements have been made to security administration tools. The ease of anti-virus network management has been significantly improved by adding a new centralized security configuration and flexible Dr.Web Anti-virus service subscription charging options.

For more details on what's new in Dr.Web AV-Desk 6.0, please refer to the release notes.

Important! Providers must consult Dr.Web experts to update their Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service to version 6.0. Those not using Dr.Web AV-Desk can make a request to access the service demo.
