Web Security Services 2.0
Price: Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and URL filtering start at a combined price of $5 per user per month
MessageLabs' 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.
