Doctor Web — the Russian anti-virus vendor — announces successful deployment of Dr.Web AV-Desk by “Laboratorya setevikh technology” (network technologies lab) company operating in Dubna (a town situated 125 km north of Moscow).
The company provides broadband Internet to more than 9000 subscribers who as any Internet-users also need to be protected from viruses. A number of malicious programs in the wild increases day after day and so does the number of calls for support.
“Now every member of a family has his own computer. All these computers connected to the Internet are in danger of getting infected or becoming a target of an attack. Many subscribers applied to the helpdesk after such attacks and it took a lot of time and efforts to deal with their consequences”, Alexander Antonov, the director general of “Laboratorya setevikh technology” said.
A special solution is required to create a security system for monitoring and protection of an entire network. The unique anti-virus service from Doctor Web allows providing such a security. Dr.Web AV-Desk has already become popular among service providers and their subscribers in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Estonia.
“Subscribers got interested in the service during the testing period. When the testing was completed all participants renewed their subscriptions on the fee basis. More than 30 000 malicious objects were detected on computers of subscribers in one month. But what our subscribers really like is that they don’t need to search for an anti-virus in a store. Dr.Web AV-Desk delivers the anti-virus software to a machine in a few seconds”, Alexander Kirpichnikov, the head of the information department of the company said.
