Web control allows you to block web pages that may contain potentially offensive material. It also enables employers or system administrators to prohibit access to 27 pre-defined website categories and over 140 subcategories.
Web control is used primarily for regulating web content that can be accessed by client workstations in a company network. The goal of Web control is to prevent users from accessing pages with inappropriate or harmful content, or pages that may have a negative impact on work productivity. This is achieved by filtering specific URLs, or pre-defined categories, including legal liability sites, pornography, sites that violate intellectual property rights, or sites that may impact a company's IT infrastructure.
See Web Control in the ESET Endpoint Security User Guide for more information on this feature.
