How It Works

Your Policies, Our Protection

Web Defense is completely managed, so it does not require additional hardware or software. Your web traffic is routed through our web proxy server, which filters traffic according to policies you’ve determined.

The secure custom online portal allows authorized administrators to view and download real-time reports via an administrative console that provides insight into overall threat, individual threat and web use activity.
