Configuring Web Reputation

Web Reputation enhances protection against malicious websites. Web Reputation leverages Trend Micro's extensive web security database to check the reputation of URLs that Clients are attempting to access or URLs embedded in email messages that are contacting websites.

  1. Go to the Configure Policy screen by performing one of the following:
    • Classic Mode: Go to SECURITY AGENTS and select a group. Click > Configure Policy.

    • Advanced Mode: Go to POLICIES > Policy Management. Click Add or click an existing policy.

  2. Click Mac.
  3. Go to Web Reputation.
  4. Under Web Reputation, enable the feature and configure the required settings.
  5. In the Security Level section, specify from the available Web Reputation security level.

    The security levels determine whether Web Reputation allows or blocks access to a URL. For example, if you set the security level to Low, Web Reputation only blocks URLs that are known to be web threats. As you set the security level higher, the web threat detection rate improves but the possibility of false positives also increases.

  6. In the Untested URLs section, enable Block websites that have not been tested by Trend Micro.

    While Trend Micro actively tests web pages for safety, users may encounter untested pages when visiting new or less popular websites. Blocking access to untested pages can improve safety but can also prevent access to safe pages.

  7. Click Save.
