Creating Web Filter Policies

Note: This topic applies to the Leeds Release.

Guardian processes web filter policies in order of priority, from top to bottom, until it finds content that matches. When it finds a match, Guardian applies an action of block, allow, whitelist, soft block or limit to quota as configured in the policy.

You can review the default web filter policies on the Guardian > Web filter > Manage policies page and you can change the order by dragging and dropping policies in the list.

You can create custom web filter policies to allow or block specific content, allow access to specific web sites at certain times or apply an acceptable usage policy (AUP) to meet your organization’s requirements.
