Trend Micro Tool Reports a Company's Entire Web Activities

Trend Micro launched a new Web Gateway Security solution that integrates its InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance 5.0 product and a new Advanced Reporting and Management module to monitor and manage employee Internet use at the office while proving on-premise malware scanning. The Advanced Reporting and Management module gives visibility into an entire company's Web activities, delivering real-time information at a very granular level.
Key features include:

  • The ability to scan HTTPS traffic and create exception policies based on specific sites or categories of sites to support privacy requirements

  • Flexible URL filtering policy engine that supports capabilities such as custom URL categories, exceptions and file type whitelisting.

  • Object-level blocking, which secures Web 2.0 Web pages by providing more granular enforcement of policy without blocking the entire page.

  • Support for Google and Yahoo!'s SafeSearch feature to prevent inappropriate content from appearing in search results.

  • Support for directory-based user identification while deployed in transparent bridge. This deployment mode allows all Internet traffic to be analyzed without having to reconfigure users' browsers or other network devices in the environment.
