Mission Control Web Proxy
The Web Proxy acts as an intermediary that enforces an organization's internet access security policy for clients that request access to resources located in the public internet. Depending on the options that are activated, the Web Proxy increases the level of protection of client machines against malicious content and restricts access to URL categories.
Blacklist entries based on IP addresses, domains, domain names or hostnames can be customized in the Web Proxy. Additional flexibility and broader configuration options can be achieved with the URL Filter, introducing category-based access rules and customizable blacklists and whitelists. Group and port access policies are granularly definable and assign access rules to groups of network resources such as IP addresses and ports.
SSL Scanning applies the existing security and internet usage policy to the HTTPS protocol and, enforces an organization's policy also for encrypted traffic. It prevents viruses, spyware and Trojans from bypassing the malware protection by using the HTTPS tunnel.
URL Filtering enforces an organization's internet access policy and protects against risks associated with the employees' internet use. It reduces legal liability, enhances web security, increases productivity and preserves bandwidth for business related activities.
Malware Protection uses protocol scanning technologies for HTTP and FTP, as well as a combination of filters, to detect both unknown and known malware. Configuration options for specific characteristics of internet browsing traffic, such as archive handling policies and media type filters, can be defined and are available in the Mission Control Portal.
