Fortigate Tutorial – Web Filtering

 

Fortigate processes Web Filtering options in the following order:

1. URL Filtering

2. Fortiguard Web Filtering

3. Content Exempt

4. Content Block

5. Script Filter

6. Antivirus

 

Let’s talk a little about all of them:

1. URL Filtering – you define what URLs the Fortigate can block

2. Fortiguard Web Filtering – based on the categories you choose, the Fortigate will block the pages

3. Web Content block

This option blocks specific words or patterns. You can use Perl regular expressions and the based on scores you can block those

4. Web Content Exemption – allows the administrator to override the web content block feature.
