Imagine – the year is 1992, the Soviet Union has just collapsed and Igor Danilov has a vision – to create the best antivirus software in the world. Igor and his team spend the next 10 years developing and refining his software until it finally exceeds his incredibly high standards – Dr. Web is born! Fast forward to today and you will find that this passion for excellence and innovation still drives the Dr. Web team. We continue creating dynamic and effective applications that protect YOU from cyberattack!
Igor Danilov knew that computer viruses were going to get worse, and become a major threat to the public – and this worried him greatly! He wanted, and still wants, to help people protect their computers, and safeguard the important things in their lives.
However, a fort can only be successful if it maintains and updates itself, and is easy to use. The average user, like you and me, doesn’t necessarily know – or even want to know how their automobile operates. We only want to get where we are going, easily, efficiently, and safely! The same applies to our computers! We want to turn them on, use them, enjoy them, and know that we are safe from a devastating virus attack.
Our philosophy is simple: to prevent, detect, and respond. And our technology is both complex and simple; complex on the inside, simple on the outside. Totally effective - yet easy to use!
We always follow the motto of Doctor Web's founder in everything we do: SECURITY WITHOUT COMPROMISES!
Doctor Web’s strategic goal, on which its entire workforce is focused, is to create anti-virus software that is of the highest quality and meets all the requirements currently placed on this segment of programs, and to develop new technologies that allow users to arm themselves against all types of computer threats.
The company’s software incorporates a proprietary anti-virus engine—only a few companies in the world have their own engine, and the rest license one from other anti-virus vendors. The Dr.Web engine utilises many effective, often unique non-signature technologies.
Dr.Web can recognise suspicious programs that have similar behaviour patterns and block their operation even if their definitions haven’t yet been added to the Dr.Web virus database.
A distinctive feature of the Dr.Web virus database is that just a single entry can neutralise tens or hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of similar types of viruses! Even with its smaller number of database virus entries, compared with other programs, it can detect with a high degree of probability malicious programs that Dr.Web does not yet know (because they haven’t yet been added to the database).
The global Dr.Web virus-monitoring system obtains virus samples all over the Internet. As soon as an update is released, anti-viruses can retrieve it from several servers located at various points of the globe. Urgent updates are released as soon as a new threat has been thoroughly analysed.
