Protection

For a Web Gateway policy, you can configure protection settings such as advanced antivirus scanning options, network logging levels, and URL parameter stripping.

To change the protection settings, in the Web Gateway policy, click Settings and then Protection.

Logging & Privacy

Use this to configure how network events should be logged.

You can choose which types of events are logged and whether the user associated with an event is identified.

Enable Parameter Stripping

Use this to configure whether sensitive URL parameters (parameters showing sensitive data) should be stripped from URLs when they are stored for logging.

This setting is important when combined with SSL scanning, as often URL parameters contain information like usernames, passwords, accounts IDs and more.
