SSL Sites bypass URL Category block

Not applicable

Good Day Guys and Gals

I need ideas on the following issue please! I have a block on all Social networking sites for the company. The Policy works great when the user tries to access, but when they use SSL ( the user gains full access to the site. Same goes for all other Social networking sites! How do we stop them on SSL?

Thanx in advance!

Hi, you need SSL Proxy to unencrypt SSL and analize the traffic. It is very easy to implement.

You could also block these using the URL filtering feature. URL filtering will work on encrypted or unencrypted traffic because it is making the allow/block decision using the unencrypted URL information.


Good Morning Bpappas

Thank you for your reply!

I am actualy using the URL filtering feature, Policy with application filtering and url in custom deny list, but still it bypasses the PA......

Any other ideas?


if that is happening I would advise you to open a case with your support provider.
