Dr.Web Cloud

You can connect to the Doctor Web cloud service and take part in the Dr.Web quality improvement program. The cloud service collects information on last threats detected on user stations, ensuring virus databases are constantly updated and the newest threats are neutralized effectively. Moreover, data is processed faster on the cloud service than on the local computer.

Cloud service

Dr.Web Cloud provides most recent information on threats which is updated on Doctor Web servers in real-time mode and is used for anti-virus protection.

Depending on update settings, information on threats, that is used by your anti-virus protection components, could become obsolete. The use of cloud services allows you to protect users of your computer from websites with unwanted content and infected files.

Software quality improvement program

If you participate in the software quality improvement program, impersonal data about Dr.Web operation on your computer will be periodically sent to Doctor Web servers, for example, information on created rule sets for Dr.Web Firewall. Received information is not used to identify or contact you.
