Kazan, a city where over 30 percent of subscribers use Teleset Networks services, has become one of the most promising IT cities in Russia in recent years. In 2009, a business incubator called 'IT Park' was opened here to implement public projects such as 'E-Education', 'E-Healthcare', and 'E-Government'. And, last but not least, among Russian cities, Kazan ranks fourth in number of Internet users. Following the introduction of Dr.Web AV-Desk, existing Teleset Networks subscribers will be able to appreciate the advantages of the SaaS-based anti-virus software delivery model, and those yet to subscribe will have additional reasons to opt for this provider.
Indeed, Internet users in all Russian cities today need more than just a quick and reliable way to connect to the Internet. As the computer becomes the center of their digital universe, allowing them to work, communicate, entertain, and spend leisure time, viral threats and losses of sensitive and confidential data increase in magnitude, system performance decreases, etc. In such circumstances, a provider that offers its subscribers simple and affordable protection tools obtains a weighty competitive advantage. It is specifically in this capacity that Doctor Web offers companies its Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service.
Dr.Web Anti-virus service is very simple for end-customers to use and does not require ISPs to invest significant time and material costs to implement it. The fact that Doctor Web experts are always ready to assist providers and engage in consultations with them on various issues makes the service even more attractive. Teleset Networks experts say that this event was no exception: the technical part of the work was done quickly and smoothly, and internal testing was successful.
"Customers can subscribe to the anti-virus easily and conveniently; they save time by paying out of a single account for a high-speed Internet service and an anti-virus service," — said Konstantin Muzychenko, Teleset Deputy Head of Marketing. — "Among the service’s additional indisputable advantages for end-users are the reasonable price, the high quality of the anti-virus, the ability to get updates from the provider’s server, and an optimal choice of subscription packages".
