The Internet is essential to business today. However, the dynamic Web 2.0 environment—with its growing use of blogs, wikis, social networking sites, and other interactive features—poses significant security challenges for the enterprise. Malicious code and web-borne viruses can easily enter the network when users visit infected websites—without users even being aware of it.
Put an end to those risks with McAfee SmartFilter. It’s the intelligent web filtering solution designed to prevent your employees from accessing sites that expose your organization to viruses, malware, and other security risks, while reducing legal liability, maximizing employee productivity, and preserving bandwidth for business-related activities.
SmartFilter enables your organization to understand, filter, and monitor Internet use, while providing effective control over outbound web access and protection against the web-based threats you’re likely to encounter, today and tomorrow.
Using a combination of real-time reputation scoring and category filtering, McAfee SmartFilter proactively and reliably detects and enables you to block spyware, phishing, malware, and other ubiquitous security threats in today’s Web 2.0 environment.
TrustedSource™ technology proactively finds, reports, and enables SmartFilter to block traffic to and from questionable sources. Relying on its global reputation network and knowledge of Internet entities, TrustedSource identifies potentially malicious behavior, including actions that indicate an intention to distribute malicious code.
For category-based filtering, the TrustedSource Web Database provides a proven repository of more than 25 million blockable websites in more than 90 categories. Built by a team of multilingual web analysts using state-of-the-art technology, our TrustedSource Web Database offers unmatched coverage, quality, and accuracy.
