Applies to Kaspersky Small Office Security 2 for Personal Computer

The Web Policy Management component from Kaspersky Small Office Security 2 for Personal Computer allows you to restrict and monitor access to web resources depending on their content.

Also you can configure access to web sites more detailedly using the lists Allowed URL and Blocked URL. For example, you can add a web address, which is not included into categories of web sites access to which is blocked, to the list of Blocked URL.

If the Control access to web sites option is enabled, you can view web sites access statistics for each user account on the selected computer.

In order to control and limit the access to web sites corresponding on their content for the required user account, perform the following actions:

  1. Open the main application window
  2. Go to the Web Policy Management tab.
  3. In the Web Policy Management window select the necessary account.
  4. Click the Configure policies button.

  1. In the left part of the Settings – Web Policy Management for user “account name” window in the Internet section select Access to Websites.
  2. In the right part of the window, check the box Enable control.
  3. If you want to block access to web sites not included into the Allowed URL list, then check the box Block web sites not included into the "Allowed" list.

  1. If you want to block access only to web sites of particular categories, then go to the Not recommended tab and select the required categories, or you can select all categories by checking the box Select all.

  1. You can create a list of web sites access to which will be allowed. In order to do this, go to the Allowed URLs tab, click the Add link and then enter the required address, for example, http://www.site.com/*, in the entry field of the Address mask (URL) window. The asterisk (*) means any sequence of symbols. To save the address, click the OK button.

For example, you want to add the following URL www.site?anti-virus, then you have to enter the \ symbol before ?; the web address will look in the following way www.site\?anti-virus.
