Set Your Block Policies For Newly Released Categories

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

The new categories released and updated in your product on April 3 are set to “Allow” by default (for all CyBlock products).  This means that you will need to review these new categories and set your policy to “Block” those categories for which you want to restrict access.  Set your block policies at the Advanced Settings – Filter Settings – Block Web Categories screen.

For reporting and monitoring purposes, you may also want to change the new category’s classification statuses at the Advanced Settings – Category Setup – Classification screen to match your organization’s Acceptable Use Policy.

See the Category Update Data Sheet for a full list of categories and their descriptions.
