Doctor Web – the Russian developer of IT security solutions branded Dr.Web – announces a successful deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk in the network of the Globalnie Telesystemi company that provides the Internet to citizens of the Yaroslavl region. The company has joined “Nauka-svyaz” and “Zavolga.Net” that already deliver anti-virus and anti-spam protection as a service in the region.
A successful internal testing of the Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet-service is followed by its commercial launch. Starting in November 2008 Globalnie Telesystemi offers its customers to sign up for the Dr.Web anti-virus service and receive reliable protection against viruses and other malware and use the service free of charge till December 31.
“While surfing the web our customers being unaware of a danger often fell victims to viruses. As we detected a dramatic increase of traffic for an infected host, our specialists had to disconnect it to cure an infected system. Of course it took time and extra resources. That’s why we started searching for a solution that would protect computers of our subscribers and wouldn’t be too costly. Now the Internet service from Doctor Web allows any of our customers to use the Dr.Web anti-virus service. And it is much more convenient than buying a boxed anti-virus”, Mikhail Zilberman, the head of Globalnie Telesystemi said.
