The deployment of the new service also enabled centralized protection of the entire local network, put several anti-virus servers in a group with the complex communication scheme and encrypt communication between components of the anti-virus network.
The deployment process took as little as six days. The control centre was installed on a server of Information-computer centre and 350 agents were installed on workstations in offices of executive bodies of Perm region and in the Information-computer centre.
When the testing was completed technicians of the Information-computer centre outlined rules of procedure and set up a training system for hardware, projecting and technical support divisions.
