Each of these categories contains sub-categories that further define the respective content. For example, the Operating Systems category includes the following sub-categories: Linux & UnixMac OS, and Window. When you configure your category filter, you can add as many categories and sub-categories as you need. For example, if you want BloxOne Threat Defense Cloud to detect and block internet content related to tobacco and alcohol, you select and add these sub-categories while configuring your category filter. You then add the category filter to your security policy and assign the Block action for the filter.

Although you cannot view or configure the predefined domains that are associated with the sub-categories, you can set the BlockAllowLog, or Redirect action when you add the category filter to the security policy. For information about security policies, see Configuring Security Policies.

To use category filters, complete the following:

  1. Create a category filter, as described in Creating Filters.
  2. Add the category filter to the security policy, as described in Configuring Security Policies.
  3. To update a category filter, see Editing Filters.

Configuring Application Filters

Application filters are a set of rules that BloxOne Threat Defense Cloud uses to detect and filter specific Internet content. The Application Classification Service (ACS) provides accessibility to applications based on their category or subcategory. Using application filters, you can set security policies based on whether you want to allow an app to access the Internet at all times, or if you want the app to use local resolution when used with BloxOne DDI appliances. 

To use application filters, complete the following:

  1. Create an application filter, as described in Creating Filters.
  2. Add the application filter to the security policy, as described in Configuring Security Policies.
  3. To update an application filter, see Editing Filters.

To use application filters with local on-prem resolution, see local on-prem resolution.
