Izhevsky Mekhanichesky Zavod (Izhevsky Manufacturing Plant) is the leading Russian producer of weapons many of which are officially distributed around the world under the brand name of Baikal. Now the company uses solutions created by Doctor Web to protect computers of its employees against viruses and spam.
The company with its history over 50 years produces up to 85% of Russian weapons exported to as many as 70 countries. The company employs several thousand people. Most of production processes are automatic therefore protection of computers storing important data against malware and spam is especially relevant
The unique experience of deployment of brand-new technologies drove management of the company to apply to the Russian anti-virus vendor in order to solve the issue.
Dr.Web Enterprise Suit (200 machines) and a solution for protection of e-mail (100 addresses) have been deployed in the local network of the company to tackle increased viral attacks. A Russian IT-company Lotta Plus assisted and consulted technical staff of the leading Russian manufacturer of weapons on the deployment of the anti-virus software.
Dr.Web solutions have been chosen for their reliability proven during operation at enterprises and state institutions of Russian Federation. Easy installation and low system requirements were also considered by the management of Izhevsky Mekhanichesky Zavod.
"The deployment of Dr.Web on mail servers stopped spreading of viruses and Trojans in the corporate network. Besides, malicious traffic dramatically decreased. Meanwhile Dr.Web Enterprise Suite turned out to be very easy to administer and control anti-virus scan of machines and updating of the virus database ensuring reliable protection of personal computers against viruses and other malware” , Irek Salikhov, the deputy-head of the information technologies department of Izhevsky Mekhanichesky Zavod commented upon the short-term results of the deployment.
