Environment : Xcitium Dome Secure Web Gateway
Summary : In order to enforce web protection policies with using URL filtering , you should configure which website categories should be allowed and blocked from URL filtering section from Dome SWG portal. URL filtering policies allow you to block (or allow) access to large numbers of websites of a certain type. You can add multiple website categories to a single profile. In addition to URL filter settings, you can also define your own domain whitelist and blacklist. The list added here overrides the URL filter settings done in the category section. For example, if you select 'News' category to be blocked and add cnn.com to whitelist, then access to cnn.com is allowed and blocked for other news websites, such as bbc.co.uk.
