Web Filtering

The tabs of the Web Protection > Web Filtering menu allow you to configure Sophos UTM as an HTTP/SClosed Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure caching proxy. This includes Antivirus scanning on incoming and outgoing web traffic, protecting against spyware and detecting malicious websites. It can also control access to websites of different categories, allowing you to enforce policies regarding access to things such as gambling, pornography, or shopping, including blocking these sites or providing a click-though warning page.

Note – Web Filtering does not support HTTP pipelining.

You can still manage your filter actions on the Web Filter Profiles > Filter Actions tab. There you can add, modify, clone or delete filter actions. But now you can create, modify, and assign filter actions by launching the Add/Edit Filter Action wizard on the Web Filtering > Policies tab.
