What types of access control can I set up for my end users?
Hosted Web Security can be configured on a highly granular per-group or per-user basis. You can set up the following types of access control.
You can restrict all access for users of a specific policy by time. There are 2 formats for this:
You can apply both user and group exceptions to any time-based access control that you set up.
Hosted Web Security uses the Websense Master Database, which organizes similar Web sites (identified by URLs and IP addresses) into categories. Each category has a descriptive name, like Adult Material, Gambling, or Peer-to-Peer File Sharing. You can also create your own, custom categories to group sites of particular interest to your organization. Together, the Master Database categories and user-defined categories form the basis for Internet filtering.
You can set up both user and group exceptions for any of the Websense or user-defined categories. For example, you might want to allow the Facilities group to access travel-related sites, but block the rest of the company from access.
