Doctor Web — the Russian developer of IT security solutions branded Dr.Web —reports upon the introduction of the Dr.Web anti-virus service by the CSN Internet service provider that has become the third company protecting its subscribers by means of Dr.Web software in the Belgorod region.
One of the largest provider companies in the region has started delivering the anti-virus service to its subscribers at the end of November following a successful deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk. The innovative Internet-service has already been put to good use by more than fifty access providers in Russia and the CIS offering their customers efficient protection against malware and spam along with broadband Internet.
Prior to the deployment numerous home and small business customers were constantly faced with the threat of infection that would spread all over the network from a single compromised host. “Dr.Web AV-Desk fully complies with our requirements to anti-virus software. It is very easy to install and the price is quite reasonable. Add low use of traffic and subscription management tool and you get as many benefits as no other anti-virus software can provide”, Vladimir Ilyin, the manager of information systems department at CSN commented on cooperation of the ISP with Doctor Web.
The test deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk lowered the number of network failures caused by malware and reduced spam traffic. A number of calls for support also went down “Hopefully the deployment will raise the security of our subscribers to the level that would make their work in the Internet safe and comfortable and consequently strengthen our position on the local provider market”, Aleksy Prokopenko, the head of CSN said.
CSN is an ISP operating in the Belgorod region with it wireless and optical fiber networks found virtually in every town. The company also plans, builds and administers computer systems and networks, distributes computer hardware and maintains office automatic telephone systems.
