Working with Category Group Objects

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

A category group object is a collection of categories, made up of URLs, domains, phrases, lists of file types, security rules, or any combination of these. Guardian uses these groups in web filter policies to determine if a user should be allowed access to the content they have requested using their web browser.
