The web filtering feature evaluates the risk of each hyperlink selected within the SaaS application. Accessing these sites and monitoring changes in user behavior increases the user’s overall risk score because it signals the endpoint device is compromised and started to infect or encrypt data or the user and device are stealing intellectual property.
How web filtering works
- URL analysis check is done to determine if the URL is a Citrix service URL.
- The URL is then checked to determine if it is an Enterprise web or SaaS app URL.
- URL is then checked to determine if it is identified as a blocked URL, or if it must be redirected to a secure browser session or if the URL can be allowed to be accessed.
Note: The block, redirect, and allow URL analysis is also performed at the category level.
