Web Access Protection does not block HTTPS urls

Go to solution Solved by Arakasi,

Recommended Posts

We are running ESET Endpoint security in our offices to block employees from accessing urls that are not work related such as Facebook, etc and we have thought so far that the Web Access Protection feature was working for us when I realized today that if I add https on any url that is not on my Allowed Addresses list it will go through.


www.facebook.com -> BLOCKED: OK

https:www.facebook.com -> NOT BLOCKED!


I use the allowed addresses list so whatever is not there should not work.


How can this be fixed?

Please make sure that you have SSL scanning enabled. Otherwise secured communication cannot be filtered.


Web and email -> Protocol filtering -> SSL -> SSL protocol checking -> Always scan SSL protocol?
