Web 2.0

Ensure safe, productive Web 2.0 access and control how web applications are used

Next Steps:

Overview

As Web 2.0 application usage and sophistication increase, so does the need for flexible access and Web 2.0-ready security — since even seemingly safe sites can be targeted for malware distribution. McAfee understands the security needs of the Web 2.0 world and offers the industry’s most effective, proven web security solutions.

Powered by McAfee Labs and Global Threat Intelligence, McAfee web solutions protect users and assets from malware entering the network as well as misuse of the Internet. Beyond simply allowing or denying access, our solutions let you control how web applications are used, enabling a safe, productive Web 2.0 experience. For example, you can allow users to access Facebook, but block their access to Facebook games. McAfee Web 2.0 solutions also prevent unauthorized data from leaving the organization through bot-infected machines attempting to phone home or users attempting to transmit sensitive data — intentionally or unintentionally.

With McAfee Web 2.0 solutions, you can deploy web security any way you choose, from the cloud, through our robust on-premise appliances, and in virtualized environments, to best fit your network needs.

Key Benefits

  • Get the industry’s best protection
    Filter out malicious content from web traffic in real time. By scanning a web page’s active content, emulating and understanding its behavior, and predicting its intent, McAfee Web 2.0 security proactively guards against zero-day and targeted attacks. Outbound malware detection identifies and isolates existing infections phoning home, and prevents sensitive data from leaving the organization through Web 2.0 sites.
  • Use hybrid security to enhance protection
    Combine local defenses with cloud-based intelligence — including reputation-based technologies powered by McAfee Labs — for optimal, up-to-the moment protection and performance.
  • Enable productive use of Web 2.0
    Use Web 2.0 confidently within your organization by leveraging strong inbound and outbound filtering of multiple web protocols, including deep inspection of encrypted traffic. Provide detailed control over how web applications are used and who is authorized to use them.
  • Stop data loss
    Keep confidential information from leaving your organization by scanning user-generated content on all key web protocols.
  • Protect encrypted traffic
    Close the new backdoor through your security barrier with fully integrated malware detection, SSL inspection, and certificate validation.
  • Leverage powerful reporting tools and customizable dashboards
    Identify your organization’s usage trends, isolate problems, document inappropriate web activity, and comply with regulations using powerful reporting capabilities and integration with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software. Utilize this information to tailor filter settings to best enforce your web usage policies.
