Aug 9, 2023
Kaspersky Web Traffic Security (hereinafter also referred to as "the application" or "KWTS") is a solution designed for protecting HTTP-, HTTPS-, and FTP traffic passing through a proxy server.
The application protects users of a corporate network when accessing web resources. For example, it deletes malware and other threats from the data stream that enters the corporate network via the HTTP(S) and FTP protocols, blocks infected and phishing websites, and controls access to web resources based on web resource categories and content types.
The application is developed for corporate users.
Kaspersky Web Traffic Security:
- Protects the IT infrastructure of your organization from most modern malware and encrypting ransomware thanks to machine-learning algorithms and operating system data emulation technology.
- Blocks access to infected and phishing websites.
- Uses Kaspersky Security Network data to obtain information about the reputation of files and web resources, ensure that Kaspersky applications react to threats faster without waiting for an application database update, and reduce the likelihood of false positives.
- Integrates with Kaspersky Private Security Network (hereinafter also referred to as KPSN) to access reputation databases of Kaspersky Security Network and other statistical data without sending data from their computers to Kaspersky Security Network.
- Scans encrypted traffic with certificate replacement on the proxy server side.
