BrightCloud URL Category Filtering

Through cooperation with BrightCloud Inc, GateWall DNS Filter includes integrated BrightCloud Service and BrightCloud Master Database tools. An administrator may deny clients access to web sites with certain types of content without having to name the sites. DNS Filter statistics module can generate a report of the categories of all visited web sites, such as advertising, education, news, etc. Filtering by URL categories allows a more flexible Internet access policy.

To deny access to a specific category of web sites, open Rules window in Traffic Control section, create a new rule and select one or more URL categories on the last page of the dialog box.
