Secure Web Gateway (SWG) supports application filtering for use with or without an SWG subscription for specific configurations only.
SWG supports application filtering in these configurations:
SWG does not support application filtering in these configurations:
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) supports a predefined set of application families and applications. An application family name characterizes the type of applications associated with it. Users cannot add applications or application families to SWG.
An application filter specifies the applications (and application families) that Secure Web Gateway (SWG) supports and a filtering action (allow or block) for each application. An application filter can be used in a per-request policy in a supported SWG configuration to control access to supported applications.
SWG provides predefined application filters: block-all, allow-all, and default. The default application filter allows access to some application families and blocks access to others. Users can define their own application filters and use those that SWG provides.
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) provides a few default application filters and you can configure additional filters. Application filtering is effected in a per-request policy in supported SWG configurations.
