What’s the procedure for categorizing a website into custom categories? Any specific steps or tools recommended for this task?
Websites in SafeSquid are categorized by SSqore.
SSqore analyzes the nature of content served by websites and categorizes the websites.
Benefits of such categorization is policies can be configured based on the web category.
For, e.g.: To allow all websites which are categorized as government.
But at times you want multiple web category to have a custom category for easy policy configuration.
Best example for this would be Company Blacklisted Websites or Company Whitelisted Websites where websites from different web categories needs to be categorized as single category, based on company requirements.
Custom Web-Categories in SafeSquid can be used to create such private categories efficiently.
