Overview of Web Control

McAfee® Endpoint Security Web Control is a browser-protection solution that monitors web searching and browsing activity on client computers. It protects against threats on webpages and in file downloads.

A McAfee team analyzes each website and assigns a color-coded safety rating based on test results. The color indicates the level of safety for the site.

Web Control uses the test results to identify web-based threats. Software installed on the client system adds features that appear in the browser window and search results to notify users.

You use McAfee ePO to deploy and manage Web Control on client systems. Settings control access to sites based on their safety rating, the type of content they contain, and their URL or domain name.
