Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite Control Center

Centralized control over the protection of all hosts in the corporate network


Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite Control Center

The Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite Control Center facilitates centralized administration of reliable anti-virus protection for computers and devices used by the company's employees, including their personal desktops and handhelds:

The security administrator can control anti-virus protection of the corporate network from anywhere and from virtually any computer or device that has access to the Internet.

The intuitive interface will help you deploy an anti-virus network in the shortest time possible in any corporate network regardless of its size and organization; it does not matter how many machines and branch offices are connected over the network, what its topology is, or whether an Active Directory server is available. Administrators do not need to acquire any special skills to deploy the anti-virus network.

The Dr.Web Control Center lets administrators control all components of the anti-virus network from inside the network or remotely over the Internet, monitor the security status of all protected hosts, and receive notifications on virus incidents and configure an automatic response to such events. All that’s needed is a TCP/IP connection between the administrator’s computer and the anti-virus server.

Low-cost administration

The Control Center’s maintenance costs are reduced to a minimum thanks to simple administration routines and the Web-administrator’s ability to provide an at-a-glance view of the entire corporate anti-virus network from anywhere in the world.

The versatile Web-administrator, combined with the solution’s seamless integration with Windows NAP and the option to create custom event handlers in any script language, reduces the workload of system administrators by freeing them of daily anti-virus routines.

Exceptional scalability

Equally reliable in networks of any scale and structural complexity, from small workgroup networks to distributed intranets with tens of thousands of hosts, the Control Center offers exceptional scalability. Interaction between the anti-virus servers of the Control Center (which is connected to a SQL-server used for data storage) and between the servers and protected workstations that make up the complex communication system is organized hierarchically.

This results in a single anti-virus network of interconnected workstations, making it possible to collect information about the entire network on one server. The hierarchical organization makes the Control Center the perfect choice for multi-branch companies whose networks are not connected to the Internet.

Wide range of supported network protocols

The Control Center simultaneous supports several network protocols for interaction between the anti-virus server and protected computers allowing the solution to be used in diverse network environments.

Traffic reduction

Compared with competitive solutions from other developers, the Control Center guarantees minimal network traffic. A special data transfer protocol for TCP/IP and NetBIOS networks provides data traffic compression in TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, or NetBIOS networks.

Transparent operation

The operation of a Dr.Web anti-virus network is completely transparent. An administration audit log records all installation and configuration activities. All components can record their activities in separate log files with customized verbosity, and all file operations performed by the anti-virus software are reflected in the statistics. A notification system informs administrators about problems in the network. Such notifications can be displayed by the Web-administrator or sent via e-mail.

The notification system provides an administrator with the following features:

  • customizable text of threat notifications
  • notifications on virus attacks, scan results, and file deletions
  • An option to view reports in the Web-administrator or exporting information into CSV, HTML, XML or PDF formats
  • customizable logging verbosity
  • retrieval of information on the following
    • virus activities with detected viruses arranged by group
    • detected client vulnerabilities
    • scanning errors
    • anti-virus components running on protected PCs
    • abnormal behaviour of protected machines

Anti-virus server

The Control Center included in Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite connects to anti-virus server that facilitates the centralized administration of an anti-virus network including its deployment, virus database and software component updating, network protection status monitoring, virus incident notifications, and statistics collection. Detailed descriptions of all features related to the centralized management of individual products can be found in the “Control Center” tab of the corresponding products.

Deployment

The Control Center’s anti-virus server can be installed on a computer connected to the local network. It stores distribution files of anti-virus packages for different operating systems, updates of virus databases and package program modules, user key files, and the configurations of protected objects. The server can also send information upon request from the agent to the corresponding machine.

The cross-platform architecture of the server software allows it to be run on both Windows and Linux servers. No other competitive solution can boast such compatibility.

The server can communicate with agents over virtually any network protocol currently in use (TCP/IP (including both IPv4 and IPV6), IPX/SPX, NetBIOS), allowing the anti-virus network to be deployed using an existing network infrastructure.

Updating

The anti-virus server retrieves updates of virus databases and agent components. It keeps the Internet traffic of the anti-virus software low and automatically configures updating routines.

Updates of protection components can be retrieved from the anti-virus server as well as directly from Doctor Web updating servers, allowing anti-virus software on computers and laptops to be kept up to date. This can be vital for machines that may be unable to connect to the anti-virus server regularly.

Collecting statistics
The anti-virus server stores the configuration of each agent in the network and scanning statistics from each anti-virus component of each protected machine in its database. To store data, the server can utilize both its built-in database and an external database. With a single source for storing server information and critical data backups, restoring server operations after database files become corrupted, or when the server must be ported to another machine, becomes easy.
Anti-virus agents

Anti-virus agents are installed on protected computers, servers, and mobile devices, and if necessary on the machine running the anti-virus server. Agents send virus event reports and other relevant information to the anti-virus server.

Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite agents let you control anti-virus protection for the following types of objects:
