Your employees are your company's most important asset. The Internet is probably close behind, giving your employees essential tools to do their jobs while giving partners and customers a convenient way to connect with you. But for too many companies, employees + Internet = risks. Put an end to those risks with McAfee SmartFilter. It's the smart web filtering solution designed to prevent exposure to viruses, malware, and other security risks, while reducing legal liability, maximizing employee productivity, and preserving bandwidth for business-related activities.
The web you want, the control you need
Today's dynamic Web 2.0 environment poses significant security challenges for the enterprise. Malicious code and web-borne viruses can enter the network when users visit an infected website - usually without even knowing it. And the growing use of blogs, wikis, social networking sites, and other interactive features of Web 2.0 also poses an ever-increasing threat. The good news is that you don't have to put up with these threats. You can take charge of security the smart way, even in a Web 2.0 world. McAfee 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. The McAfee SmartFilter product line includes solutions optimized for business and for education.
Powered by TrustedSource
McAfee SmartFilter incorporates global intelligence from the industry-leading TrustedSource reputation system, enabling your company to benefit from information about content sources and risks gathered across the entire Internet. In the same way a credit agency provides credit scores to enable reliable commerce, TrustedSource provides reputation scores for URLs, domains, and IP addresses based on known behaviors, deviations from expected behaviors, and dynamic assessment of security risks. Using this real-time scoring, McAfee SmartFilter proactively and reliably detects and blocks spyware, phishing, malware, and other security threats that are ubiquitous in today's Web 2.0 environment.
Understanding your organization's web usage with the powerful reporting solution
McAfee SmartFilter products include powerful reporting capabilities - an element that's essential to the utility of any web filtering solution. With McAfee Web Reporter, you can quickly understand how your organization is using the web, identify trends, isolate problems, document inappropriate web activity, and tailor your filtering settings to effectively enforce your web usage policies. McAfee Web Reporter combines real-time views into today's web traffic, extensive drill-down capabilities, and powerful off-line processing - providing everything you need in one easy-to-use solution.
Easy to manage
The intuitive interface lets you pick and choose the categories you wish to implement, and customize your policies according to users and groups you specify. For example, you can deny access to gambling and pornography sites for your entire organization, while allowing access to travel or sports sites to certain departments or users during lunch hours. With Authorized Override, you can designate individual users who are authorized via password to override the filter for a specified time. You can also easily create user-defined categories that allow you to block sites not included in the TrustedSource Web Database, or to exempt any site that you would like specific groups or individuals to access. McAfee SmartFilter products give you the flexibility you want and control you need to manage your individual web access policy.
