The HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate

Internet traffic filtering

This component is not available in Dr.Web Anti-virus for Windows. Today an anti-virus alone is not enough to protect a PC. All the Dr.Web for Windows protection components are available in Dr.Web Security Space.

Compare with Dr.Web Security Space

Safe Internet traffic

— scanning on all ports is carried out on traffic transmitted via Dr.Web-supported protocols, including secure connections (if the user has enabled the option to scan SSL traffic).

Safe Internet surfing

— with secure search, Google, Yandex, Yahoo!, Bing and Rambler will only return links to content considered safe by the search engines and Dr.Web. Dangerous sites will be excluded from search results altogether!

Secure communication

— traffic filtering for instant messengers such as Mail.Ru Agent, ICQ, and Jabber. Links leading to malware and phishing sites are removed from messages. The anti-virus scans transmitted attachments. The transfer of potentially dangerous files is blocked.

  • The HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate scans incoming and outgoing HTTP traffic in real time, intercepts all HTTP connections, filters out data, blocks infected web pages in any browser, scans files in archives, and protects users from phishing sites and other dangerous web resources.
  • Scans encrypted SSL traffic (HTTPS).
  • Access is blocked to sites used to distribute malicious or potentially dangerous programs, phishing sites, and sites using social engineering techniques to misguide users (more).
  • A separate database of sites that distribute unlicensed content offers protection for copyright holders.
  • Disable the scan of outgoing or incoming traffic and create a blacklist of applications whose HTTP traffic will be scanned no matter what (blacklist). Define applications whose traffic will not be scanned (whitelist).
  • Prioritise the traffic you want to scan (i.e., do a balance test). Balance CPU load and Internet bandwidth usage.
  • SpIDer Gate operates independently from web browsers.
  • Filtering does not affect overall system performance, surfing speed, and the amount of traffic transmitted.
  • No configuration is required in the default mode; Dr.Web SpIDer Gate starts scanning right after installation.
  • Thanks to the redesign of the Dr.Web Net filtering Service traffic interception routines, downloading files from the Internet has become much faster. The revamped routines for scanning media content ensure that online video and audio is streamed without delay. CPU usage for file transfers via browsers and download managers has decreased significantly. Fans of Dr.Web and online games will notice the difference in scanning speed!
  • New exception settings for faster scanning. For example, you can now exclude:

    • Data transmitted via HTTPS;
    • Traffic generated by applications with valid digital signatures.
    The new settings will help prevent conflicts between Dr.Web and third-party applications during traffic filtering and yet maintain the desired security level.
  • URLs get checked on Doctor Web's servers via Dr.Web Cloud. As a user goes to a website, the respective URL is sent to Doctor Web to determine whether the site is safe to visit. The URL is examined in real time regardless of what the update settings are or how current a computer’s virus definitions are (more).

Safe Internet traffic

  • Detects malicious files when cybercriminals attempt to transmit them, including via secure protocol.
  • Blocks access to known malicious resources – including for malware trying to access control servers.
  • Do cybercriminals hide viruses in archives? HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate will root them out.
  • With HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate, it's your choice: you decide what sites you need to access and what applications can access specific resources.
  • Do your remote employees use illegal software programs (including ones infected with viruses)? HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate will prevent these employees from visiting sites containing such programs.
  • Do you worry about your children and parents? HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate will not allow them to open sites that are used to distribute malicious or potentially dangerous programs, phishing resources, and sites that use social engineering techniques to misguide users (find out more).
  • HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate does not affect overall system performance and surfing speed.

No configuration is required: SpIDer Gate starts scanning right after installation.
