Web protection provides a safe search engine with proxy options and real time web protection for malicious websites.
The Web Protection performs two important functions:
Analyzes site addresses and blocks access to dangerous sites
Scans and serving the objects downloaded by Chrome while user surf the web with four technologies used for scanning the links:
Check against the database of suspicious sites—simple comparing of the address of the site to be opened with the addresses of the web resources which are known for hosting malware, attacking computers or other harmful activities
Check against the database of phishing sites—is similar to the previous check, but against the database of sites on which phishing pages were found
Heuristic analysis for detecting phishing sites—analysis of the site contents for HTML code characteristic of phishing
KSN check—addresses of the opened sites are checked against the local KSN cache. Dangerous links are blocked. If the local cache lacks information about the site, a background request is sent to the KSN cloud. The received answer is saved in the local cache and is used for further checks.
Objects are scanned using signature and heuristic analysis.
