Introduction

Cytomic divides websites into several categories, enabling administrators to restrict access to them and to any manually entered URL. This protection helps organizations optimize network bandwidth usage and employee productivity, restricting access to non-business related Web content. Additionally, Cytomic allows administrators to set time restrictions to limit access to certain website categories and blacklisted sites during workhours, or authorize it during non-business hours or weekends.

Note that from Release III, Forcepoint provides the web access control categorization.

If you are on a previous product version, you will see the new category equivalent. See chart below for further details.
