Web Security Service - WSS


The Symantec Web Security Service (WSS) allows you to download a copy of any report to your local system. For example, you want the report in a file format that you can merge into other documents. You can combine multiple PDFs or copy results from a spreadsheet into another project spreadsheet.

You can download the report in one of three formats:

  • PDF—Opens with Adobe Acrobat/Reader.
  • CSV—Comma-delineated file that opens with a compatible spreadsheet application (such as Excel).

    If the generated report begins with incorrect characters—for example: ï»¿Category—switch to the CSV (Raw) format.

  • XML—Exports report data in standard XML format to be opened by external applications.



  1. In Solutions mode, generate any report.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click the Download icon. The portal displays a Download dialog.
