InformationApply a secure URL filtering profile to all security policies permitting traffic to the Internet. The URL Filtering profile may be applied to the security policies directly or through a profile group.
URL Filtering policies dramatically reduce the risk of users visiting malicious or inappropriate websites. In addition, a complete URL history log for all devices is invaluable when performing forensic analysis in the event of a security incident. Applying complete and approved URL filtering to outbound traffic is a frequent requirement in corporate policies, legal requirements or regulatory requirements.
Not having an effective URL Filtering configuration can leave an organization open to legal action, internal HR issues, non-compliance with regulatory policies or productivity loss.
