PC Magazine (Russia) names Dr.Web AV-Desk best “product-as-a-service” of 2007
Dr.Web AV-Desk is a unique anti-malware and anti-spam service which enables Service Providers to deliver complex information protection to an unlimited number of subscribers regardless of their geographical location. Dr.Web AV-Desk allows optimizing operation of the anti-virus for a particular provider network where users get an efficient and automatically updated Dr.Web anti-virus via the local network. Possibility of installation in an infected system, high detection rate, language independent spam analysis, exceptional stability, efficient use of Internet traffic – these are the main benefits of Dr.Web.
Corbina Telecom – one of the four largest ISPs in Russia with over four hundred thousand subscribers – has deployed Dr.Web AV-Desk. The service enables the provider to monitor infection level of subscribers’ PCs and promptly assist its customers dealing with viral threats. Launching the new service has significantly decreased the number of support calls and minimized the quantity of viral events on computers of customers.
Even if subscribers of a provider are numbered in hundreds of thousands, IT-security investments with Dr.Web AV-Desk are much lower than costs on clean-up from virus epidemics or increase of technical support staff. However, the service is unique because it can be deployed at no costs at all. Users pay for the protection in small chunks of money monthly which can also be automated.
“Anti-virus protection is no longer just a piece of software but also a constant monitoring of viral activities by trained support staff of a provider and anti-virus vendor which gives additional advantages for a user facing a virus threat but lacking skills to handle it on his own”. – says Boris Sharov, the Doctor Web, Ltd. CEO.
