Trend Micro Inc. developed the OfficeScan security product. With OfficeScan, network administrators are able to monitor, manage and safeguard a network from threats like malware and viruses by blocking potentially harmful websites through the proxy server. Compatible with various operating systems, including Windows NT, OfficeScan may sometimes block useful and harmless websites, which makes disabling it necessary. A viable way to disable the OfficeScan proxy service is to use a proxy site, which is a website that enables you to bypass any type of Internet restrictions, including OfficeScan service proxy restrictions.
