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.
This July 2015 Forrester Report explores:
- Why consistent, automated DevOps processes are essential to closing vulnerabilities and limiting exposure.
- Practices, such as infrastructure as code and automated provisioning, for closing holes as soon as patches are available.

For the security and compliance professional, it’s critical to have access to a reliable and accurate asset inventory, especially when investigating security incidents and verifying and demonstrating compliance.
In spite of the billions of dollars invested in security, web-borne threats are still on the rise. Enterprises need a security system that can enforce granular web access policies on all devices used to access the web from inside and outside the network perimeter.
