Dr.Web AV-Desk — Tune In!

October 6, 2011

Doctor Web, the Russian market leader of Internet anti-virus security services, announces the launch of the Dr.Web Anti-virus on the basis of a publicly available web service created by Information Support Center for Business (ISCB), one of the most dynamic and professional IT companies in the Sverdlovsk region. The ISCB office is located in Krasnoturinsk, the home of the late Alexander S. Popov, the inventor of radio.

ISCB has been operating in the city since 2010. At a time when the Internet has come to replace the radio, the famous Russian inventor’s countrymen are moving in a progressive direction with regards to information technology — by providing anti-virus security based on the SaaS model.

Today, more than 350 Russian and foreign companies are Doctor Web partners, providing the Dr.Web AV-Desk anti-virus security service to their customers. Most of them are ISPs that are thus able to enlarge the number of services they can offer their subscribers. In contrast, ISCB uses a "pure" SaaS model: all Internet users, regardless of their provider’s location, can obtain the Dr.Web Anti-virus service at only limitation concerns the method of payment. Currently at, the service can be paid for via RBKMoney and IntellectMoney.

The option to use an anti-virus as a service would be of interest to individuals and corporate users who wish to protect their information in the most simple and cost-effective way possible.

The service was launched in August 2011, and, according to Nikolai Krasnikov, director of the Information Support Center for Business, no problems or failures have been noticed since Dr.Web AV-Desk was deployed. "We have chosen the Doctor Web service because of its reliability and ease of setup and use. Dr.Web AV-Desk is a convenient and advantageous tool for users and us alike," — said Nikolai Krasnikov. — "The set of subscription packages and the payment system fully satisfy our customers. Moreover, the ISCB already has experience using Dr.Web products, and therefore, when deciding to deploy it, we had no doubt as to what the quality of the service and support would be."

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. The number of service providers that deliver the Dr.Web AV-Desk service in different regions of Russia and also in the Ukraine, France, Spain, Netherlands, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria and Estonia exceeds 350. Following results shown by the service in 2007, Dr.Web AV-Desk was named the “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.
