Usage Guidelines

The WebCC license allows all web traffic to be classified and allows the managed device to apply firewallFirewall is a network security system used for preventing unauthorized access to or from a private network. policies based on web content category and reputation. The category and reputation data for each URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. is obtained from an external WebRoot Server. The WebCC feature can operate in two distinct modes, which control whether the managed device or Mobility Master performs the WebCC content lookup tasks. This command can be executed only from the /md subtree of the Mobility Master.

Centralized Mode

In the default centralized mode, only Mobility Master downloads the URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. entry database from the WebRoot Server. If a URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. for web traffic sent through the managed device does not appear in its datapath cache, the managed device sends a query request to Mobility Master. The Mobility Master queries the WebRoot Server, adds the response to its database and sends information about the URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. back to the managed device.

WebCC license usage is calculated for each license pool, and the total count in each pool is sent to each managed device within that pool. If the WebCC licenses expire, or the available WebCC licenses are fewer than the AP licenses, then individual managed devices within that pool will no longer be able to send query requests to Mobility Master, and WebCC classification will be blocked.

 

If WebCC classification is blocked due to expired or insufficient licenses, individual managed devices continue to classify requested URLsUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. currently available in the managed device datapath cache until the cache entries time out (usually over a period of 24 to 96 hours, depending upon the reputation level of the URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet.).

Distributed Mode

In distributed mode, each individual managed device downloads the complete URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. entry database (approximately 22 MB) directly from the WebRoot Server. If a URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. for web traffic sent through the managed device does not appear in this database, the managed device sends a query to the WebRoot Server, then adds the response to its datapath cache.

WebCC license usage is calculated for each license pool, and the total count in each pool is sent to each managed device within that pool. If the WebCC licenses expire, or the available WebCC licenses are fewer than the AP licenses, then individual managed devices within that pool will no longer be able to send new query requests to the WebRoot server. However, the WebCC feature continue to classify requested URLsUniform Resource Locator.
