The Check Point Application Control and URL Filtering solutions have effectively enabled us to increase employee productivity and network security while significantly decreasing bandwidth consumption and our exposure to Web 2.0 threats. Additionally because it ties in with Active Directory, we have the granular ability to easily block access to applications, widgets, and URLs at the user level, the group level, and the node level.

Utilize a dynamically updated database of over 200 Million Websites to allow, block or limit web site access in real-time—all web site traffic, clear and SSL-encrypted. Choose from 64 pre-defined content categories.
Scan and secure SSL encrypted traffic passing through the gateway.
When traffic is passing through, the gateway decrypts the traffic with the sender’s public key, inspects and protects, then re-encrypts, sending the newly encrypted content to the receiver.
Granularly define exceptions for SSL inspection to protect user privacy and comply with corporate policy. Some encrypted content passing through the gateway should not be inspected, and therefore can be bypassed with a simple administrator policy definition.
You can opt for “Lite” HTTPS filtering and filter HTTPS traffic without SSL inspection.
Allow, block or limit web site access based on user, group and machine-id for a single URL or an entire URL Category.
The ability to allow, block and limit web site access based on user, group and even machine-id is missing from most URL filtering solutions today. Check Point URL Filtering is user-aware making user, group and machine-id information readily available for policies, reporting and management purposes.
The URL Filtering Software Blade is integrated into the Software Blade Architecture, and can be activated easily on Check Point security Gateways. By just enabling the URL Filtering software blade inside their existing gateways, companies can save up to 90% over traditional stand-alone URL Filtering solutions.
Combine the URL Filtering Software Blade and the Application Control Software Blade to unify web site access control with web application and widget control for improved security and lower cost.
The Check Point URL Filtering Software Blade provides the ability to allow, block or limit access (based on time and/or bandwidth) to millions of web sites and web pages. Check Point Application Control Software Blades provides similar capabilities for 4,800 internet applications and over 300,000 web-based widgets.

Use Check Point UserCheck to actively engage and educate users as they access the web to identity potential policy incidents as they occur and remediate them immediately.
Users are an integral part of the web security and control process. The best practice is to engage and educate users as they use the web to identity potential policy incidents as they occur and remediate them immediately. Check Point UserCheck, a feature of the URL Filtering software blade, enables an organization to implement this best practice saving valuable IT administration time while improving user productivity and overall security.
