Protech's Web Protection is the final layer of defense for companies concerned about the safety and integrity of their network, and the computers running on them. Rather than monitoring the files downloaded and installed by employees, it monitors web traffic to understand where they are going, and what potential risks they face along the way. Protech Web protection solutions actively prevent users from placing themselves in
danger, thus helping to protect company infrastructure.
How does it work?
Protech Web Protection solutions monitor HTTP traffic passing through a central gateway. This traffic includes the web address or IP address of the browser’s destination. The web protection gateway compares online destinations with websites defined in our whitelists and blacklists to determine whether an online destination is dangerous or not.
