Example: preventing access to forbidden websites

An example of using Situations to block access to specific websites.

The Administrators at Company C have noticed that employees frequently visit websites that are not related to their work. They want to block access to these websites to prevent employees from accessing them at work. To prevent access, they:
  1. Create a Situation element.
  2. Add the Website Access Control Context to the Situation.
  3. Specify the addresses they want to prevent access to. Access to the specified addresses is blocked.
  4. Refresh the Inspection Policy on the IPS engine.
