    • Ability to bypass HTTPS scanning for certain internal IP/IP range.

      As it would be impossible to push out a SSL certificate to a guest network, or to custom non-pc system, this would allow customer to still use HTTPS scanning for the rest of the network

      • Web Appliance acts as an ICAP client to a third-party DLP solution

        ICAP (Internet Content Adaptation Protocol) support to give the capability of working with DLP products to block PAN data at the network edge.

        This will give customers the capability of blocking PAN (Primary Account Number) data at the network edge in the event PAN data is passed thru a unsupported internet browser.

        • Link activity search items to policy test

          When currently viewing user activity, there is no way to see easily see why an access is permitted or denied. Currently, one needs to take the URL and user information and manually go over to Policy Test and then test to URL to see why a particular action was taken. It would be much better if the reason was available directly from the search activity. For example, clicking on the status entry could pull up a page similar to the results page of Policy Test, and say what the risk level is, category, tags, policy result, policy, and reason.

          • Dashboard: Recent Usage widget

            Client is requesting an additional feature in Dashboard showing the top sites visited for the past hour including the number of visitors and hit counts.

            One of the items that I struggle with is keeping informed of the demand that is placed on our Internet appliance. I would dearly love to have a dashboard component that would show me the top 5 or 10 web sites that are being visited for the last 30 or 60 minutes, including how many employees have visited the site or the number of hits on that site.

            This would help my team be more…

            • Search term reporting for youtube

              Under Reports > Options > Search Terms would it possible to include this functionality into the You Tube search engine?

              We are an special needs independent school and this would help us to monitor teenage students who like typing inappropriate searches into You Tube. Love the way you implemented this functionality for search engines such as Google. Our teenage students got the shock of their life when we were able to challenge them and ask them why they were searching on inappropriate subjects which had nothing to do with the lesson that they were being taught.

              • End-user pages: Custom error pages based on policy

                Having the possibility to create and/or customize all error pages / block pages / warning pages based on a specific policy.
                In fact, having the configuration of the error page on the policy.

                For example, if user toto is part of an additional policy "policy1", then user see the block page of the policy1, if he is part of the additional policy "policy2", then user toto see the block page of the policy2.

                  • Reports that show time-of-day browsing patterns by category

                    "Once I have run a Category report from the Policy and Content section, I would like to take the top categories and chart them (say in a line graph) by time to see when our employees are visiting these categoies.
                    I would also like to run a report by category when I wish to know if I should block a site for example: games. If game sites are being visited after hours or during lunch, then that is quite acceptable, but if it were during work hours I need to restrict access."
