URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
