WebBlocker is an integrated URL filtering subscription for WatchGuard security appliances. It allows IT administrators to control HTTP and HTTPS access to objectionable material. It works with the appliance's reporting function to give visibility into users' web activities. WebBlocker helps to increase employee productivity, prevent legal liabilities, and protect against malicious attacks. It blocks up to 54 content-specific categories and can be applied to web access policies based on users, groups, and domains, making it very easy to configure and manage. WebBlocker is licensed per appliance instead of per user and requires no additional hardware purchase, making it a cost-effective solution.
