Web control

The Web control section enables you to configure settings that protect your company from risk of legal liability. Web control can regulate access to websites that violate intellectual property rights. The goal is to prevent employees from accessing pages with inappropriate or harmful content, or pages that may have a negative impact on productivity.

Web control enables you to block web pages that may contain potentially offensive material. In addition, employers or system administrators can prohibit access to more than 27 pre-defined website categories and over 140 subcategories.

By default, Web control is disabled. To activate Web control:

  1. Open Advanced setup > Protections > Web access protection > Web control.
  2. Enable the Enable Web control toggle to activate Web control in ESET Endpoint Security.
  3. Configure access to specific web pages. Click Edit next to Rules to access the Web control rules editor window.


Blocked webpage message and Blocked webpage graphic fields enable you to customize the displayed message when a website is blocked.


If you want to block all web pages and leave only certain available, use URL address management.
