Use the Policy Management > Filters page to view, create, and modify category, protocol, cloud app, and limited access filters.
The Filters page is divided into 4 main sections:
*
Category Filters determine which categories to block and permit.
*
Protocol Filters determine which non-HTTP protocols to block and permit.
Although Network Agent must be installed to enable full protocol-based policy enforcement, with Forcepoint Web Security, Content Gateway can manage non-HTTP protocols that tunnel over HTTP ports. See Configuring tunneled protocol detection for more information.
The hybrid service does not provide protocol-based policy enforcement.
*
Cloud App Filters determine which cloud applications to block and permit.
Cloud app filters are not used when a request is made by an off-site user.
*
Limited Access Filters define a restrictive list of permitted websites (see Restricting users to a defined list of URLs).
Filters form the building blocks of policies. Each policy is made up of at least one category or limited access filter, one protocol filter, and one cloud app filter, applied to selected clients on a specific schedule.

To duplicate an existing filter, mark the check box next to the filter name, and then click Copy. The copy is given the name of the original filter with a number appended for uniqueness, and then added to the list of filters. Edit the copy just as you would any other filter.
If you have created delegated administration roles (see Delegated Administration and Reporting), Super Administrators can copy filters that they have created to other roles for use by delegated administrators.
To copy filters to another role, first mark the check box next to the filter name, and then click Copy to Role. See Copying filters and policies to roles for more information.
