In late March 2021, we will be introducing a new category, “real-time-detection” to the URL Filtering category list. The “real-time-detection” category will be used by customers who are beta testing the new “Advanced URL Filtering” feature. It will not be functional without a proper beta license. Please contact your account team if you wish to participate in this beta testing program.

 

There is no impact to customers not participating in the beta and no action required of them.
