Managing updates

Regularly updates of customer virus databases are essential to maintain a reliable security. Just one computer with anti-virus software installed that is not updated correctly or regularly with the latest anti-virus definitions can become a great threat to all the workstations in the network.

Updates of anti-virus agents with the latest virus definitions are obtained from an anti-virus server. This ensures that the internet traffic used by the anti-virus software remains low and the need for manual updates and adjustments in the configuration disappears.

Updates of the virus definitions and the anti-virus engine will be applied automatically. A Dr.Web antivirus service server receives the updates automatically and distributes these immediately to the machine of customers who are connected to the anti-virus service. This ensures there are no additional configurations or scheduling of updates necessary. An administrator is given the option to disable the option of cancelling updates by users and can also adjust the frequention of virus databases for the users. Updates can be applied for all the Dr.Web anti-virus service components asswel ass for every component on it self.

The virus databases version control and agent blocking implemented in Dr.Web antivirus service help keep installed components up to date and prevent spread of infection.

Dr.Web antivirus service retrieves updates from the Global Dr.Web Updating System. The Global Dr.Web virus monitoring system allows obtaining virus samples all over the Internet. Updates are obtained from several servers located in different points on the globe. Hot fixes are released as soon as an emerged threat has been analyzed. An update is tested over a huge number of uninfected files before it is released.


From the very start we have been using Dr. Web antivirus service this is due to our innovative marketing and sales advice, herefor we work abroad a lot so we are often on the road and staying in hotels. It is very convienent to be able to enter the internet from your notebook on the road. We did not want te invest in antivirus software or in a server and an administrator this is why we have chosen to take a monthly subscripment from Dr. Web's antivirus service.
