The Web Threat Protection component protects incoming and outgoing data that is sent, using the HTTP and FTP protocols, to and from the computer. The component also checks URLs against the list of malicious or phishing web addresses.
If you enable the Encrypted Connections Scan feature, the Web Threat Protection component also protects data that is sent over encrypted connections (for example, by using the HTTPS protocol). You can also configure the list of trusted domains. The component will not control or process encrypted connections made during visits to those domains.
To configure the Web Threat Protection component 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 Threat Protection component settings page opens.
The Exclusions window opens.
The New record window opens.
When specifying the URL, you can use the
* (asterisk) character to take the place of any set of characters.
For example, specify
company.com to exclude only this webpage, or
*.company.com/* to exclude all webpages of the website.
The added URL appears in the list of exclusions in the Exclusions window.
The New record window opens. It contains the selected URL.
The modified URL is displayed in the list of exclusions in the Exclusions window.
The deleted URL disappears from the list of exclusions in the Exclusions window.
After the security profile is applied, the Web Threat Protection component is enabled on Windows devices. This component intercepts and analyzes webpages and files to which the user has gained access, scanning them for viruses and other malware.Page top
