Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
At its simplest, web protection software requires a single policy that applies one category filter, one protocol, and one cloud app filter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your software includes tools, however, for going far beyond this basic safety net, to achieve precisely the level of granularity you need to manage Internet usage. You can:
*
Create limited access filters to block access to all but a specified list of sites for certain users (see Restricting users to a defined list of URLs).
*
Create custom categories to redefine how selected sites are treated (see Working with categories).
*
Recategorize URLs to move specific sites from their default, Master Database category to another pre-defined or custom category (see Reclassifying specific URLs).
*
Implement bandwidth restrictions, blocking users from accessing otherwise permitted categories and protocols when bandwidth usage reaches a specified threshold (see Using Bandwidth Optimizer to manage bandwidth).
With the Hybrid Module, bandwidth-based restrictions are not enforced for requests managed by the hybrid service.
*
Define keywords used to block sites in otherwise permitted categories when keyword blocking is enabled and activated (see Keyword-based policy enforcement).
*
Define file types used to block the download of selected types of files from otherwise permitted categories when file type blocking is activated (see Managing traffic based on file type).
