Dr.Web Anti-virus as a service comes to South Asia

December 30, 2015

Doctor Web is pleased to announce the first deployment of the Dr.Web AV-Desk Internet service in South Asia— in South Asia. Now in Sri Lanka. Lanka Bell will provide the service—a leading corporate that provides a wide range of telecommunication services to residential and business customers throughout the country.

From January 1, 2016, Internet users—clients of Lanka Bell—will be able to sign up for the Dr.Web Anti-virus service and choose not only the appropriate subscription package according to protection requirements, but also choose the subscription period on a per day billing method.

Up to now, local ISPs offered anti-viruses provided on a subscription basis at least for one year.

"The user can try the service for a month absolutely free, and then subscribe to the Dr.Web Anti-virus service for a minimal cost and increase the costs if necessary only. Moreover, one cannot find cost effective SaaS-solution in Sri Lanka. Parental Control, Anti-spam―are some of the components that make the service attractive to our users, so taking into account other benefits of Dr.Web Anti-virus, we are expecting service to be a success", says Trushan Handy, the Head of Lanka Bell IT.

Lanka Bell will use the user-friendly Dr.Web Subscription Control Centre to work with their subscribers. The whole line of Dr.Web Anti-virus subscription packages—from basic to comprehensive protection—will be available for users and can be accessed through the Lanka Bell Corporate site www.lankabell.com.
