1 McAfee Web Reporter Introduction

The McAfee Web Reporter software (hereinafter Web Reporter) creates reports that show you how
people in your organization are using the Internet.
Web Reporter provides the reporting tools to identify issues in your organization such as liability
exposure, productivity loss, bandwidth overload, and security threats. You can use this information to
modify web use policies and provide guidance for appropriate Internet use in your organization. Use
® ® ® ® ®
Web Reporter with McAfee Web Gateway, McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise, McAfee SmartFilter , and
other third-party web filtering solutions.

Web Reporter overview


Web Reporter includes multiple reporting options to create and generate reports that show web usage
in your organization. Use predefined reports to get a quick view of the most recent web activity or
create and schedule reports to get the information with the exact details you need to review web
activity throughout your organization.
Using Web Reporter, you can identify web filtering needs to use when configuring web usage policies
and identify web usage issues. Reports created in Web Reporter can help identify when and how users
are accessing the web that involve areas such as:
• Liability

• Productivity

• Bandwidth

• Security

Report options
In Web Reporter, there are various types of reports that give you different levels of detail. When
creating custom and advanced reports, you can select display options or layout options for additional
customization.
Web Reporter offers three types of reports: summary reports, custom reports, and advanced reports.
Each report type has a different purpose and its own configuration settings.

McAfee Web Reporter Introduction
Report language options

Table 1-1 Report types


Report Definition
type
Summary Summary reports are the most condensed type of reports and are accessible from the
Quick View menu. These reports are preconfigured reports that provide a snapshot of
recent web activity. Report types include sites, user names, user IP addresses,
categories, malware, web reputation, protection areas, and actions. In addition to
viewing these reports in the Web Reporter window, you can send or store summary
reports in additional formats using one of the supported localized languages and include
a logo.
Custom Custom reports are accessible from the Quick View menu and provide more detail than
summary reports. Custom reports allow you to select which data to include in a report,
save the report as a favorite or advanced report, and schedule it to run regularly. You
can view custom reports in the Web Reporter window or send or store the reports. When
you choose to send or store the reports, you can select one of the available file types,
reformat the fields using an available language, and include a logo.
Advanced Advanced reports provide the most amount of detail. Advanced reports use queries and
filters, and offer additional options such as layouts, graphs, and query-level filters. Using
all the options, you decide which data to put in the report and the amount of detail to
display.

Report language options


Web Reporter can translate some fields and data in predefined queries and predefined advanced
reports into one of the supported languages. When you send, save, schedule, or run a report
immediately (Run Now), you can select the language you want for the translatable fields and data.
Web Reporter allows you to select a language when sending a summary or custom report, and when
saving or scheduling a custom or advanced report. This translation happens within the software only
when you select a language for your report. This option does not translate fields and information
within the user interface or customized reports (including customized queries, filters, and so on).

Selecting a language will translate some data and the available translatable fields of a report, while
everything else appears in the language used for the log files. For example, if you have log files that
were generated in English and you select French for the translatable report fields and some data, you
will get a report with French labels and data, with everything else appearing in English.

Translatable fields:

• Actions — Translates the predefined actions in Web Reporter (Allow, Block, Bypass, Monitor,
Override, Warn)

• Date and time formats — Translates date and time formats to the selected language

• Report titles, labels, headings, and legends — Translates these items in your report

• Category names — Translates any TrustedSource™ Web Database category name that appears in your
report

• Reputation ratings — Translates TrustedSource Web Database reputation scores

• Protection areas — Translates protection areas that are recognized in Web Reporter

Any user-defined field, such as a custom column name, is maintained in


the original language.

Quick View reports are interactive real-time reports that give you a condensed view of data within the
Web Reporter user interface. With Quick View reports, you can select from predefined reports, create
your own reports, and save reports as favorites.

Quick View reports overview


The types of Quick View reports are summary (predefined), custom, and favorites.
Web Reporter includes predefined and customizable real-time reports that you can interact with in the
user interface. After creating a custom report, you can save it as a favorite. Use these reports when
you want a quick and simple view of data organized into predefined reports or custom reports
configured by you.

• Summary reports — Predefined, interactive summary reports display a snapshot of network


activity for the week. Reports consist of data for sites, user names, user IP addresses, categories,
malware, web reputation, protection areas, and actions. The Quick View summary report is the first
report you see each time you log on to Web Reporter.

• Custom reports — Custom reports are based on summary reports, but include more detail and
allow you to customize the report by selecting the criteria (such as dates and filters) you want to
see in a customized report. You can save and schedule custom reports.

• Favorite reports — Favorite reports are custom reports you save to access at a later time.

Summary reports
Summary reports are preconfigured interactive real-time reports that display activity for today,
yesterday, and the past seven days.
The preconfigured summary reports are part of the Quick View report feature that gives you an
overview of network activity for your organization. Summary reports also offer drilldown capabilities
for you to see more refined detail about any of the available data. The first report you see after
logging on to Web Reporter or when you click Quick View is the default summary report.

When a summary report is displayed, you can use buttons on the report toolbar to send the report,
and switch between table and bar graph formats for most reports.

Quick View reports overview

Types of summary reports


Summary reports are available in several types of preconfigured reports, with each report displaying a
specific type of data for today, yesterday, and the past seven days.
The following is an alphabetical listing of the reports available.

Actions
The Actions report shows the actions (Allow, Block, Bypass, Monitor, Override, and Warn) taken on
website requests made today, yesterday, and during the past seven days.

For example, you suspect a user has unofficial access to override blocked websites. You can use this
report to determine if there is a large amount of override actions and to which user this access belongs.

Categories
The Categories report shows which TrustedSource categories visited websites fall into. Categories are
shown as they exist in the log source or the TrustedSource Web Database.

In addition to categories, you can sort the data on category reports by risk groups. Risk groups exist
to identify the primary risks associated with a category of URLs. Each category falls into one of the
seven risk groups. Web Reporter includes All as a selection to include categories from all risk groups.

For example, you view a categories report that displays the top categories of URLs requested on your
network during the previous week. After evaluating the data, you might find there is too much activity
associated with non-business websites, or there is a need for access to business-related websites that
you are currently blocking. Using this data, you can modify your filtering policy to be more effective
for your organization.

Malware
The Malware report shows the malware your organization is exposed to when users visit websites.

For example, your network is infected with a particular malware and you need to find which website it
originated from. Using this report, you can determine which website the malware came from, when,
and which user accessed the site. Using this report, you can modify your filtering policy appropriately.

Protection Areas
The Protection Areas report shows which protection area visited sites were filtered through. Protection
areas are defined by the security feature that filtered the site.

For example, some sites were blocked but the reason is not obvious. Using this report, you can
determine the reason sites were blocked.

Sites
The Sites report shows a list of the most visited websites in your organization. In addition to
highlighting web surfing trends at the site level, these reports make it easy to identify popular sites
that do not fall into standard categories, helping you determine whether you should modify your
filtering policy.

For example, you might suspect that some users are viewing non-work related sites, but you cannot
manage access to these sites because the sites do not fall into a specific category. You can view a site
report for the group that lists the top sites viewed by users in that group. After you determine which
sites users in the group are consistently requesting, you can add these sites to a user-defined
category, then include the category in the policy currently assigned to this group.

Quick View Reports
Quick View reports overview

User Groups
The User Groups report shows which groups have users with active web usage. This report is helpful
when you want a report for groups in your organization.

For example, you want to see which groups have the highest amount of web activity. Use the User
Groups report to view a list of groups with the number of bytes and hits.

User IPs
The User IPs report shows web usage for IP addresses within your organization. This report is helpful
when you want reports for departments based on IP addresses or ranges. This report is also helpful to
pinpoint and curb productivity issues.

For example, you are a system administrator responsible for a small network with statically assigned
IP addresses, but no central authentication server. Using Web Reporter, you can view a User IP report
that lists those IP addresses with the most web activity. You can then click an IP address in the first
column to view a list of accessed sites with the time and day they were accessed.

User Names
The User Names report shows user names with active web usage. This report shows which sites the
users visit. This type of report is particularly useful in helping you pinpoint and curb productivity
problems and address other concerns.

For example, you might suspect that some users are abusing Internet access by surfing the Internet
for hours at a time during the workday. Using Web Reporter, you can view a user report that lists
those users with the most Internet activity. You can then click a user name in the first column to view
a list of sites that were viewed and the day and time they were viewed.

Reputation
The Reputation report shows the reputation rating for the most visited websites. This report is helpful
to determine if users are going to sites that might expose the organization to harmful content or other
security issues.

For example, you would like to set up a filtering policy that blocks unverified sites, but need to check a
list of those sites to see if it would be blocking sites your users need to access. Using this report, you
can see the sites users have visited that are rated as Unverified and discuss the need to access these
sites with users or groups. Based on your findings, you can adjust your filtering policy.

Custom reports
Custom reports are interactive real-time summary reports with additional display options and settings
you can customize, such as dates and filters.
The Web Reporter custom reports allow you to select the type of data, dates, and additional display
options for your custom report. Custom reports display data much like summary reports, but with your
custom selections. For example, select Current week and Category activity for Productivity to see which
productivity categories have been accessed this week. You can then drill down to view more details,
such as the URL, user name, and more.

Custom reports as favorites


A favorite report is a saved custom report that keeps the original custom report configuration but
updates the data each time you view it.
Access custom reports quickly through the Favorites list in Web Reporter Quick View reports. For
example, you can save as a favorite a custom report that shows which URLs users visited today that
are categorized in the Security risk group and access this report every day with updated data.

5 Queries

Queries are the foundation for advanced reports that define the type of data in a report and how that
data is presented in the report.
In Web Reporter, queries and filters work together to specify what report you want, which data you
want to see, and how you want to see it. You set up queries and filters separately, yet they work
together to create your report.

A report is organized into sections of data, such as user names, websites, dates, and more. Web
Reporter retrieves data from log files and stores the data in a database. A query acts as the
communicator between the database and the report, telling the database which types of data to
display in the report. After specifying the types of data, the query then defines how the report will look.

Preconfigured queries
Web Reporter has preconfigured queries that are used in the preconfigured advanced reports.
However, you can also use these queries in your own reports.

The preconfigured queries are designed for use with the preconfigured advanced reports in Web
Reporter. The name of each preconfigured query corresponds to a preconfigured advanced report.
However, the preconfigured queries were created using typical configurations for use with any
advanced report. Web Reporter shares the predefined queries across all reporting administrator and
user accounts. Use the original configuration in your own advanced reports, or copy the preconfigured
query and modify it to match your reporting needs.

These are the preconfigured queries in Web Reporter. Web Reporter shares preconfigured queries
across all reporting users and administrators.

Queries
Custom queries

Custom queries
Custom queries are queries you configure to fit your specific reporting needs.

There are four configuration areas:

• Query types — Amount of detail in the report

• Data types and order — Type of data in a report and the order of priority

• Query-level filters — Filter which data is displayed based on selected data options

• Layout — Visual presentation of data

Query types
The query type determines the amount of detail in a report.
There are two types of queries to choose from when setting up a query—summary or detailed. Each
query type has its own set of data options (also called columns) to select from. The data options
define which data type is shown in your report, such as user name, dates, URL, and so on. The query
type determines the amount of detail in the report for each type of data.

• Summary — The Web Reporter query will look for data that is similar based on the data type and
condense it into one line in the report, much like a Quick View report. For example, if you choose
the Site Name column, the query finds all the URLs with the same domain and condenses them into
one line in the report—www.example.com/news and www.example.com/travel are condensed into
one line as www.example.com.
Select the summary report when you want:

• Reports that look similar to Quick View reports, with added flexibility and customization

• Hourly data for reports such as hits per user, categories per week, bytes per log source, and so
on

• Detailed — The Web Reporter query represents data exactly as is with the original amount of
detail available in the log file. This type of query displays a line in the report for each line in a log
file (one hit).
Select the detailed query when you want:

• Complete URLs in a report or a more exact representation of the log data

• Down-to-the-minute report data

Query columns and order


Query columns and the order of priority tells the report which type of data to get from the database
and in which order to display it.

Query columns
Query columns determines the type of data you want in your report, such as user names, URLs, and
dates. The list of query columns, depends on the type of query you select (summary or detailed).

Column order
The order in which the query columns are placed in the Selected columns list affects how each set of
data appears in the report and the order in which any additional rules (such as query-level filters) are
applied.

For example, you want a report that displays a list of websites each user visited. After selecting the
User Name and Site Name columns, you would place the User Name column at the top of the list,
giving it highest priority, and the Site Name column at the bottom of the list, giving it lower priority.
This tells the query to organize the data by user name first and to match the list of websites to the
user name.

See also
Query types on page 40
Select query and data types on page 42

Query-level filters
Query-level filters, called column properties, filter information on a single column (data type)
according to parameters you define.
Query-level filters are different from report-level filters in that query-level filters offer limited filtering
capabilities only for the query in which they are set up and are applied after any report-level filters.

For example, you want a report to show all URLs that include Google searches for used cars. In your
query you would select the URL data column and type www.google.com/search?*q=used+cars* in the
Include column property field.

Use column properties to filter data only when report-level filters cannot
be used.

The options available for column properties depend on the type of data column you select to filter on.
Options include changing the display name of the column, including or excluding data, sorting, setting
the measurement of data, decimal point placement, and more.

When you want more filtering capabilities and control over data in any query—such as filtering on user
names, categories, or log sources—use report-level filters.

Queries
Query configuration

Query layout
Layout options define how the report displays the data.

Using a table
A table displays the data in a set of columns and rows. The order in which the data appears on the
report will vary depending on the priority applied to each column—the column placed at the top of the
Selected columns field on the Query tab appears as the first column on the left in a table, or the
highest level of grouping for the information.

Use a table when you want to display the following:

• Basic representation of data

• Lists of data

• Multiple Statistics columns (only one Statistics column can be used in a graph)

• No Statistics columns (one Statistics column is required for graphs)

Using a graph
A graph displays data in 2D or 3D bar or pie charts and data is ordered by the columns selected for
the y-axis and x-axis. While you must select data columns for the query, not all of the data might
appear in the report. Ultimately, the layout and type of data that appears on the report depends on
which data options are selected for the y-axis and x-axis of the graph in the layout.

Use a graph when you want to display the following:

• Graphical representation of data

• Easy-to-view comparison of data

• Comparison of a statistics column against any other column

Query configuration
Create your own custom queries using the query configuration options.

Configure queries using the following options:

• Report and data types — Define how much detail and the type of data to display in a report.

• Query-level filters — Configure the query to further customize which data is displayed based on
selected data options.

• Layout — Control the visual presentation of data in reports using layout settings.

Choose a graph or chart and identify the legend for the query layout. Configure these options within
query settings.

Task
For option definitions, click Help in the interface.

1 Select the type of layout and the number of results to include.

2 If you select Web - Detailed columns on the Query tab, you can select Combine similar data in results to
group the same log records into one entry, similar to a summary query.

Use this option when you have an existing Web - Detailed query for
which you want only summary data. If you are creating a new query and
want only summary data, select Web - Summary.

3 If you select Graph, complete setup by selecting the graph type, y-axis and x-axis, and leave or
modify the labels and graph title.
Consider the following when selecting data for the x-axis:
• Group by — The first column you select in the x-axis field is considered the top-level group, and
rules are applied first to this column, similar to giving the column top priority in the Selected
columns list on the Query tab. When you click a column first in the x-axis field, (group by)
appears next to the column name. The (group by) means all similar data in this column is
combined into one group. For example, if you select User Name first, each user name is condensed
into its own group.

• List per group — The second column you select in the x-axis field has rules applied second. When
you click a column second in the x-axis field, (list per group) appears next to the column name.
The (list per group) means that each individual piece of data is listed separately under each
top-level group (the first x-axis column). For example, if you select User Name first as the group
by column and Site Name second as the list per group column, the report displays the user name
for each site that user visited.

If you are unsure of your grouping order, the graph title indicates the
order by using then. For example, if you select User Name for group by and
Site Name for list per group, the graph title displays User Name then Site
Name.

Filters overview
Filters help you get the exact data you want in your reports.
You set up filters and queries separately, yet they work together to create your report.

A report is organized into sections of data, such as user names, websites, dates, and more. Web
Reporter gets data from log files and stores the data in a database. A query communicates to Web
Reporter which type of data to display in the report. The filter then communicates with Web Reporter
the exact data within the data type to get for the report.

Use preconfigured filters or configure your own custom filters for advanced reports.

Filter types
Web Reporter offers several types of filters for use in custom reports and advanced reports.
Use one of the following filter types to refine the data for your reports.

McAfee® Web Reporter 5.1.0 User Guide 47

Filters
Filters overview

Table 6-1 Filter types and descriptions


Filter type Description
Action Identifies the action taken on a URL request when a user visited a website. Actions
correspond to the web filter policy in place on your network
For example, if you have a policy to block all gambling websites and a user attempts
to visit gambling.example.com, the report shows that gambling.example.com was
blocked.

Category Identifies the requested URL's TrustedSource Web Database category or


corresponding risk group
For example, a Category filter configured to show data for the Productivity risk
group will filter only the data categorized as a productivity risk group category.

File Type Identifies file types found in the URL. For example, a File Type filter configured to
show data only for video files will display only those URL requests for websites that
contain video files
Log Source Identifies which log source the data came from
For more information about log sources, contact a reporting administrator.

Malware Identifies malware found in requested URLs


For example, if a user visited a website that was infected with a known virus, the
virus name will show up as malware.

Protection Area Identifies protection areas that filtered the URL request
Protection areas are defined by the security feature that filtered the site. For
example, if you are using McAfee Web Gateway, the corresponding protection area is
one of the Web Filter choices.

Protocol Identifies which Internet protocol the URL uses


For example, if you want to show a report that excludes FTP sites, select Exclude
selected protocols and select the checkbox next to FTP.

Site Identifies URLs for the websites


For example, to filter for all McAfee websites, type: *.mcafee.*.

User IP Identifies which user IP address made the URL request


For example, you might want data about specific IP addresses if you have a
computer lab that allows any user or users with generic log on IDs to logon and visit
websites.

User Name Identifies user names and group names that made URL requests
(and Group) For example, to include the Management group, but exclude specific individuals
within that group, place the group at the top of the list and the users at the bottom
of the list.

Groups filters work with LDAP groups or internal directory groups.

Reputation Identifies the level of risk associated with a URL by associating the URL with a
particular reputation score
For example, a website scored as Minimal Risk is from a legitimate source.

Preconfigured filters

Preconfigured filters
Web Reporter includes four preconfigured filters, each filter corresponding to a risk group that contains

specific TrustedSource Web Database categories.
In Web Reporter, the four preconfigured filters are designed for use with preconfigured advanced
reports. However, the preconfigured filters were created covering four common risk groups that you
can use in any advanced report or custom report.

The preconfigured filters are shared across all reporting administrator and user accounts—when any
administrator or user makes a change to a preconfigured filter, the change occurs in each Web
Reporter account. For example, if user jshepherd removes a category from the preconfigured
Productivity filter, the preconfigured Productivity filter in jlock's account also changes.

Use the original configuration in your own advanced reports or custom reports, or copy the
preconfigured filter and modify it to match your reporting needs.

Share filters
When you create a filter, you can choose to share it with other users and select the level of permission
others have. Use permissions settings to determine if others can use, view, edit, or delete the filter.

If you share a filter with other reporting users, they have access based
on the permissions you grant. If those permissions include edit and
delete, then any user who edits or deletes the filter affects all reporting
users who use that filter. For example, you create a Sports category filter
and give edit permissions to Everyone. Then another reporting user edits
the Sports category filter to include the Web Ads category as well. This
change affects all reports for every Web Reporter user or administrator
using that filter.

Advanced report definition overview


Advanced reports include the most amount of detail and customization options.
Where Quick View reports give you a summary of interactive real-time data, advanced reports give
you the ability to fully customize offline reports using queries, layout options, display options, and
more. You can run advanced reports according to your schedule.

The following steps outline the basic process to build an advanced report:
• Queries — Create queries to select how the report will look—choose the type of data to display
and how to display it.

• Filters — Create filters to expand or narrow the data that will be represented in the report .

• Report definition — Build the advanced report by selecting queries and filters.

• Report output — Generate the report to view the results in an available report format.

Preconfigured advanced report definitions


Preconfigured advanced reports are available and fit a variety of reporting needs.
Web Reporter is installed with preconfigured advanced reports for each user and administrator. The list
of preconfigured advanced reports are typical reports an organization might use. Each preconfigured
advanced report includes one or more queries and filters. The queries and filters associated with the
preconfigured advanced reports are available to any reporting administrator or user as preconfigured
queries and filters.

These are the preconfigured advanced report definitions in Web Reporter.
