Workstations Protection

Workstations are protected by Dr.Web anti-virus packages designed for correspondent operating systems.


Protected computer with installed anti-virus package as per its functions in the anti-virus network is called a workstation of anti-virus network. Please note: according to its LAN functions, such computer can be both a workstation or mobile device and a LAN server.

Anti-virus packages are installed on protected stations and get connected to Dr.Web Server. Each stations is included in one or several groups registered on this Server. Stations and Dr.Web Server communicate through the protocol used in the local network (TCP/IP of 4 or 6 version).


The anti-virus package can be installed on a workstation only locally. Local installation is performed directly on a user’s computer. Installation may be implemented either by administrator or by user.


Detailed description of anti-virus packages installation procedures on workstations you can find in the Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite Installation Manual.


When connection with Dr.Web Server is established, administrator is able to use the following functions implemented by anti-virus package on a station:

Centralized configuration of anti-virus package on workstations via the Control Center.

At this, administrator can either deny or grant user’s permissions to change anti-virus package settings on stations on one’s own.

Configure the schedule for anti-virus scans and other tasks to execute on a station.

Get scan statistics and other information on anti-virus components operation and on stations state.

Start and stop anti-virus scans, etc. (depending on installed anti-virus package).


Dr.Web Server downloads updates and distributes them to connected stations. Thus, optimal threats protection is implemented, maintained and adjusted automatically regardless of workstation users’ computer skills.

In case an anti-virus station is disconnected from the anti-virus network, anti-virus package on station uses the local copy of the settings and the anti-virus protection on a workstation retains its functionality (up to the expiry of the user’s license), but the software is not updated. If a station is allowed to use the Mobile mode, after connection with the Server is lost, the virus bases can be updated directly from the Dr.Web GUS.


The principle of stations operation in the Mobile mode is described in the Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite Administrator Manual.
