You can use Dr.Web CureNet! for regular scans of hosts in your local network if they are not protected by any other anti-virus or if you suspect that the installed product may fail to detect some viruses.
Attention! Dr.Web CureNet! is not meant to provide constant anti-virus protection but perform only one-time scans. It doesn’t ensure security of computers between scanning sessions.
I already have an anti-virus installed. Why should I use Dr.Web CureNet!?
No anti-virus can detect all malicious programs currently in the wild, let alone the fact that different anti-viruses have different detection and curing capabilities. The number of viruses in the Internet is huge and new species appear very quickly. Regular “health checks” in a local network using Dr.Web CureNet! will help you verify reliability of your anti-virus software and cure computers in emergency situations when your anti-virus is unable to neutralize a threat.
Can I use Dr.Web CureNet! and an anti-virus product from another vendor simultaneously?
Yes, you can. Dr.Web CureNet! is designed to operate in a network environment with other anti-viruses installed and running.
How is Dr.Web CureNet! licensed?
The product is licensed per number of hosts on which scanning and curing (if necessary) are expected to be performed for 1, 10 and 30 days of usage. License periods are short because Dr.Web CureNet! is designed for regular scanning but not to provide resident protection.
How can I get a demo-key?
From http://download.drweb.com/curenet/ you can download the program distribution file to evaluate Dr.Web CureNet!. Mind that curing is not available in the demo version. To download fully-functional Dr.Web CureNet! you need to purchase a license.
What is the difference between this new product and Dr.Web CuireIt! or Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite?
Dr.Web CureIt! is used to perform a scan on a computer and can fulfil needs of small companies. But if there are a lot of computers, scanning each of them will take a lot of time and distract employees form their work. Dr.Web CureNet! allows performing scanning remotely over a network in the background so that a user can remain unaware of it. A system administrator can perform all required actions from one computer. The scanning will have little impact upon overall performance of target hosts.
Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite maintains constant end-point security. It is a powerful anti-virus with numerous features. In order to use Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite one has to deploy it on all hosts while with Dr.Web CureNet! you won’t need to deploy or install anything. Moreover, scanners will remove themselves from target hosts upon completion of scanning.
