SandBlast Mobile's On-device Network Protection prevents access to malicious websites on any browsing app by blocking access to the sites based on the dynamic security intelligence provided by ThreatCloud™.

In addition, it also prevents users from unwittingly visiting malicious websites where their device can be infected with drive-by malware.

Enabling Safe Browsing

  1. Navigate to Settings > Policy Settings > On-device Network Protection.
  2. Under "Block connections to phishing & malicious sites" section, ensure that "Phishing" and "Spyware/Malicious sites" are enabled.

  2. When viewing the SandBlast Mobile Protect app, the user will see that they have had a security event.
  3. Tapping on the event circle, the user will see a tile explaining the event. The user can tap "Dismiss" to clear the event.
