Unblocking websites that are from a region that we block

So after a ransomware attack back in september, we started blocking traffic from certain regions.  However I have users that are trying to access legitamate sites from those regions.  Is it possible to block the regions, but allow sites from said regions?

Hello,

Yes, you can do it one of several ways:

  1. put in a security policy above your policy that is used to block the region with sites/ip's you allow
  2. remove the security policy that blocks the religion and only block the sites that have the badness (make sure to have wildfire, dnssink hole, and a secure DNS provider)

There could be others I am not thinking of at the moment.

 

Regards,
