Site Advisor, Smart Screen, Netcraft Toolbar, or what?

SiteAdvisor is not playing nicely with IE11. SiteAdvisor can be a bit arbitrary.
SmartScreen never seems to do not very much.
IE provides a much better experience with SharePoint and Office365 (I wonder why?)
Netcraft has a very nice toolbar but not for IE.
Google has every interest in keeping us browsing (I wonder why?)

Has anyone got any recent information on how best to provide GPO managed anti-phishing anti-malware browser filter for and environment currently running Windows 7, 8 & 10 and IE 9, 10 and 11

Evangelists please abstain. IE is currently company policy, but Chrome could be acceptable is a valid security case could be made and GPO management is possible.

I would use opendns dns servers for this. point your dns forwarders to opendns servers 208.67.222.222 / 208.67.220.220

That is one of the problems I have with McAfee - lack of transparency over what is blocked or not.
