Category: Social Networking
Despite the growing number of Social Networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, the Sophos Web Filter does not have a ‘Social Networking’ category, and instead places such sites in ‘Personals and Dating’ by default.
In our opinion, Personals/Dating sites are very different to Social Networking sites, the latter having a legitimate business need to be accessed by certain teams within the organisation, whereas the former does not.
Therefore, we request that you add ‘Social Networking’ to the list of website categories on the Sophos Web Filter, so that we can streamline appropriate access to such sites.
We are adding the ability to manage access to major Social Web sites in version 4.0 of the Sophos Web Appliance
