Microsoft has announced that web content filtering has reached general availability and is now available for all Windows enterprise customers.
“The Microsoft Defender for Endpoint team is pleased to announce the general availability of web content filtering for our customers on Windows,” said Thomas Doucette, a Program Manager at Microsoft.
More info on the full list of block categories and detailed descriptions for each category is available in the official Web content filtering documentation.
Web content filtering is part of Defender for Endpoint’s web protection capabilities.
The feature is available on all major web browsers, and it denies attempts to access blocked content via Windows Defender SmartScreen and Network Protection.
Together with other web protection components, admins can use it to secure endpoints from web threats and regulate unwanted web content.
