Web control

Use Web control settings to protect your company from the risk of legal liability. For instance, 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 negatively impact productivity.

Employers or system administrators can prohibit access to more than 27 pre-defined website categories and over 140 subcategories and log these visits.

Web control is a managed feature. All settings are controlled from ESET PROTECT.


For Web control to function, a managed device must meet the following requirements:

ESET Endpoint Security for Android version 3 or later.

Android version 8 or later.

Enrolled in ESET PROTECT with device administrator permissions.
