Many of you are wondering, “How do I test to see if our URL Filtering service is enforcing my organization’s policies for malicious and benign URLs properly?” For benign categories, this is relatively straightforward, you simply visit the website and see if the designed policy is being logged and enforced.
This works fine for harmless categories, such as web-mail, sports, shopping, etc. It does get a bit tricky for gray area categories, such as adult as you generally don’t want to visit an adult site at work. You obviously don’t want to actually visit a malicious URL either.
We have test URLs for all categories for you to visit. These testing URLs are 100% benign, and have been categorized to their respective categories for testing purposes.
