McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise

McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise

Worry-free web browsing and risky website blocking

Overview

When it comes to web surfing, McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise is an indispensable ally, keeping you safe without limiting your access to the Internet. With SiteAdvisor Enterprise, you don't need to impose restrictive policies that keep your employees from using the web for research and business projects.

Easily identify threats — Featuring an intuitive color-coded rating system, SiteAdvisor Enterprise gives you an extra layer of protection at the desktop. For specific information about the rated site, just click on the SiteAdvisor Enterprise button in your browser, or on the message that pops up when you mouse over a search result. You'll learn about email tests, download tests, links and affiliations, and annoyances.

Perpetual Internet analysis — SiteAdvisor Enterprise relies on McAfee Global Threat Intelligence — our cloud-based rating service that continually scans the Internet with intelligent bots or virtual computers, downloads sites, and scans them for malware. The bots even fill out registration forms to determine whether signing up triggers spam. If the site contains malicious code or other suspicious activity, SiteAdvisor Enterprise marks the site “red” for risky.

Customized authorization — SiteAdvisor Enterprise also allows you to customize the authorization or blocking of website access, control messaging, assign actions based on safety ratings, and implement additional protection for remote users — all to ensure policy compliance.

Advanced web filtering — McAfee Web Filtering for Endpoint is an optional add-on to SiteAdvisor Enterprise and allows you to filter websites based on content categories and run detailed reports on web usage in your organization.

Enhanced security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence — McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. Already integrated into McAfee security products, it works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect customers against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. McAfee GTI offers the broadest threat data, most robust data correlation, and most complete product integration in the industry. McAfee’s GTI network allows enabled products to evaluate threats on multiple vectors in real time, leading to faster identification of threats and higher capture rates. SiteAdvisor Enterprise uses the McAfee GTI web reputation and web categorization services to identify sites that are hosting malware, infected by malware, and hosting inappropriate content.
