With exceptions, you can override protection settings for all web traffic that matches the specified criteria, regardless of any policies in effect. For example, you can create an exception to skip HTTPS decryption for sites that contain confidential data. The default set of exceptions allows software updates and other important functions for well-known websites without being affected by web filtering.

The behaviors that you can override include checking by Sandstorm. Exceptions (including those created in previous releases) that skip malware scanning also skip Sandstorm analysis.

Note For an exception to be effective, it must be on.
  • To turn on an exception, click the on/off switch.
  • To clone an exception, click .
  • To edit an exception, click .
