Today we are pleased to announce that the Web Security Mac DWP (Desktop Web Proxy) version of our agent is now out of BETA and available to all of our customers. You will find the latest build is already uploaded and available from within the Web Security Service Console under Resources-Download. This is an important addition as the new DWP Mac agent provides similar functionality to the DWP agent for PC and will help Web Service Administrators to protect Mac desktops and laptops and provide more complete protection of the web users within their organization.
- NEW – DWP For Mac OS – Desktop Web Proxy (DWP) for the Mac OS devices provides transparent user authentication and automatically configures users’ endpoints to route their HTTP and HTTPS web traffic to the optimal Webroot Proxy access point regardless of geographic location, while allowing Administrators to monitor and protect users external to your network without ever having to backhaul route their traffic through a VPN on your network.
