Web Reputation

InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance integrates with the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, a cloud-based infrastructure that determines the reputation of websites that users attempt to access. InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance logs URLs that Smart Protection technology identifies as fraudulent or known sources of threats, and uploads the logs to the Threat Management Services Portal for report generation.

If you do not want to allow Trend Micro Web Reputation services to collect any data about URLs, do not install Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance.
