Introducing Threat Risk Levels

Go deeper than web filtering and categorization, and get risk insight for websites

Symantec Intelligence Services offers the ability to assign risk ratings to millions of websites, empowering enterprises to implement granular and effective controls over their web traffic, even when no category assignment is available from the webfilters. With Symantec, enterprises can customize and deploy threat risk control policies based on their specific business needs and risk tolerance levels. They can eliminate high-risk web traffic, while allowing access to sanctioned websites and applications with acceptable risk levels.

Introducing Geolocation

Implement policy based on website geographic location

Symantec Intelligence Services* offers the ability to get geolocation information for websites, giving enterprises the added ability to apply policy and control based on a website’s geographic country location. Used with web filter solutions, including categorization and risk levels, enterprises can implement granular and effective controls over their web traffic. In addition, geolocation is available to identify country location of web users, making it an effective tool when used with Reverse Proxy and Web Application Firewall (WAF), to implement restricted access to web properties.
