Configure custom categories
The cloud web service categorizes websites into dozens of built-in categories to help you manage your end users' web surfing. See Category list for further information about the built-in categories.
You can also create custom categories, each of which comprises a set of sites (for example, "www.google.com") or URLs (for example, "http://www.yahoo.com/index.html"). Custom categories defined on the Web > Policy Management > Custom Categories page are created at the account level and are available to all policies.
For information on creating custom categories at the policy level, see Custom Categories tab.
Use the Web > Policy Management > Custom Categories page to view and manage the custom categories for your account.
If you have already created custom categories in a Forcepoint web on-premises solution, you can import them to the cloud service in CSV file format.
