protect your business and your employees with immediate effect.
Analyze and categorize new websites in real-time to ensure that inappropriate but previously unrecorded websites are still blocked.
Sort new websites into relevant categories such as adult, hate, gambling, shopping, trading or even humor, plus many more, so you can provide granular access to different types of content.
Analyze text on webmail sites such as Gmail and Hotmail to ensure corporate email policies are not circumvented. This can apply to both downloading and uploading of webmail, protecting confidentiality and preventing theft of intellectual property.
Our categorization engine offers a unique combination of comprehensive, fast and frequently updated URL category databases and real-time web page analysis technology.
Categorization is updated in real-time and its feeds include a Malware Categorization Database, a Phishing Categorization Database, Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), and a Child Abuse Image Content Database.
This ensures that the WebGuard service delivers the best possible category results each and every time, along with the ability to build your own profile with WebGuard as your users browse the Internet. WebGuard applies both blacklists and whitelists to prevent access to inappropriate content but ensure unhindered access to valid business websites.
With multi-engine anti-virus integration via a range of partner vendors, WebGuard offers integrated anti-spyware scanners, allowing you to control access to different file types such as executables, video, music files and archive files, like ZIP.
File downloads can be scanned for viruses and spyware in real-time to prevent infection. Control file access by both the type of file (and the size) to block downloads of excessively large files.
WebGuard specifically targets malicious URLs embedded in messages, utilizing the MailGuard Hybrid AI (Artificial Intelligence) cloud-based malware behaviour engines.
WebGuard operates a global security cloud, with discovery and detection engines distributed globally. WebGuard applies cloud-based advanced malware analysis, to analyze and block the latest generation of highly evasive cyber threats.
WebGuard maintains a constantly-updated database of malicious IP addresses, suspected malicious URLs and files, malware data, suspected phishing links, and more. This reduces the “Window of Exposure” with real-time, and often predictive, reputation-based threat intelligence, reducing the probability of attack, the cost of remediation and lost downtime.
WebGuard requires no onsite software or hardware installation, and through the use of Windows Active Directory can be deployed in minutes to an entire organization.
Authentication of users can be enabled transparently and securely using Windows’ NTLM. Apply polices to individuals, groups or all users. You can set up custom polices that apply different rules and privileges to different groups of users.
Groups can be by department, city, country, security level or any other criteria you require. You can quickly and effortlessly drag-and-drop users between groups to change a user’s privileges.
Manage Internet access as a business resource; set quotas for Internet use limited by time and/or bandwidth. Allocate different levels of usage quotas for different users (bigger quotas for those that require them).
You can also apply flexible quotas that allow users to automatically extend their quota (but raises flags for reporting). Apply flexible policies that prevent personal use during work time but allow personal use during lunchtime and out-of-hours.
WebGuard also supports soft-blocking which warns a user that they may be about to access inappropriate content but gives them the option to click-through to the site if they feel it is of business benefit to them. This action is then recorded and can be reported at a later date.
For almost any organization from public schools to large businesses there is an obligation for the organization to limit exposure to inappropriate content, whether accidental or intentional.
Lock down all Internet access if required, and only allow users to browse to your specifically approved websites. You can remind users of your acceptable Internet usage policies whenever they start a new browsing session and have them acknowledge that they will comply with these policies before proceeding.
