Web Security Services 2.0 is built on a proprietary Web-scanning architecture and features full integration with MessageLabs' existing email and instant messaging services. It is offered as two services: URL filtering, which enforces acceptable-use policies for Web browsing; and Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus, which combines best-of-breed technology with MessageLabs' proprietary Skeptic. Skeptic uses Converged Threat Analysis, taking recent threat and reputation information from other protocols, such as email, and applying that knowledge to Web traffic.

Postini's common admin console allows access to additional services.
