You can configure Windows device users' access to websites through Web Control. Web Control allows you to monitor actions performed by users in the local corporate network, by restricting or blocking their access to websites.
All restricting and blocking activities concerning access to websites are implemented as access rules. A website access rule is a set of filters and the corresponding action that Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud performs when the user visits any of the websites covered by the rule.
Web Control monitors user access to websites that is gained using the HTTP protocol. If you enable the Encrypted Connections Scan feature, Web Control also monitors access to websites that is gained using the HTTPS protocol. You can also configure the list of trusted domains. The feature does not control or process encrypted connections made during visits to those domains.
To configure website access rules on Windows devices:
The Security profiles section contains a list of security profiles configured in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.
The security profile properties window displays settings available for all devices.
The Web Control settings page opens.
The Website access rules page opens.
The New record page opens.
Categorization of websites is provided by Kaspersky Security Network, heuristic analysis, and the database of known websites. This database is included in the set of databases of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.
The Web addresses page opens.
The New record window opens.
You can use the asterisk (
*) and the
www. characters as masks. For more information about masks for web resource addresses, refer to Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Online Help.
The added web address is displayed in the list on the Web addresses page.
The specified criteria are applied simultaneously. For example, you specify the Violence content category, the Executable files data type, website http://example.com, and the Block action. In this case, the application blocks only executable files at http://example.com and only if the website belongs to the Violence category.
The rule that you have added is displayed in the list of website access rules on the Website access rules page.
This opens the <Access rule name> page. Edit the rule and save the changes.
After the security profile is applied, Web Control is enabled on Windows devices. User access to websites is governed according to the currently configured access rules.Page top
