Subscriptions to the Dr.Web Anti-virus service’s Dr.Web Classic tariff to be terminated

January 29, 2020

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web is reporting that starting October 1, 2020, when the Dr.Web Anti-virus service is subscribed to via its partners, and starting April 1, 2020, when it is subscribed to via the SCC, the Dr.Web Classic subscription package will no longer be available.

About the termination of subscriptions to Dr.Web Classic

We have reached the point where the anti-virus alone, without the complete set of modules, has become especially vulnerable — the development of the latest cyber threats confirms this. A savings of 0,35 € (the difference in price between Dr.Web Classic and Dr.Web Premium) is leading to the infection of user systems. And users may not always understand that it is not enough to use a product that does not have all the components needed to protect their systems.

The Dr.Web Classic subscription package will be discontinued within the framework of our services, both for home and for business.

Those users who have paid for the Dr.Web Classic tariff will be upgraded to the Dr.Web Premium tariff and will be able to use it until the paid period ends at no additional charge.

Only Dr.Web Premium can help minimise the risk of infection.

Under Dr.Web Premium, Dr.Web anti-virus solutions for Windows come with the complete set of components, providing reliable protection from all current and advanced threats. However, any protection technology can be rendered powerless when attackers employ social engineering techniques to make users disable anti-virus software, open bogus links, and launch files sent to them by cyber crooks.

The Anti-spam* (included in Dr.Web Premium) filters out unwanted emails as well as malicious files that have been designed specifically to circumvent known security mechanisms. Armed with information about the distinctive features of bogus mailings, it identifies and deletes emails containing the latest threats. Criminals will not be able to influence the actions of users—the emails will never reach their potential targets.

The HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate* scans Internet traffic and blocks access to potentially dangerous sites. Even if fraudsters successfully trick a user into opening a malicious link, Dr.Web will block access to the fraudulent site.

Dr.Web Parental/Office Control lets you restrict access to files and folders for multiple user accounts on the same computer and create a whitelist of removable media. By preventing unwanted devices from connecting to user PCs, targeted attacks can be avoided.

Doctor Web never tires of reminding users that an anti-virus alone can't keep a system secure The risk is especially high when a system runs operating systems that Microsoft no longer supports — Windows XP, Windows 7. Non-updated OSs are the first target for cybercriminals because security updates are no longer available for them.

Some users wrongly believe that they just won't be able to install Dr.Web Premium on their obsolete PCs. But our product is compatible even with hopelessly outdated OSs. In addition, you can opt out of installing some components—which, of course, we don’t recommend doing. If, after installing Dr.Web, you believe that your computer is working very slowly, please contact our support service and ask them to help with the configuration. We will analyse your system, and you'll be given the optimal settings.

We won't leave our users in trouble ☺
