Policy Routing based on Web Categories and/or Applications

it could be very nice to have the ability to make the routing decision based on the Web Category (Applications too) within the web policy (or apps filter) for exemple, so we can use the main Wan or Gw for business related and productive categories and Apps and all the rest goes through the secondary Wan connexion usually used for backup for exemple. and it can be blocked if primary wan or gw is down so the backup wan or gw gets used for the business traffic.

    Also if they can add the web category C&C, phishing and spam we could just keep a rule on top to be blocked.
    This would be great to keep always on top rule.

    Also we could allow specific Trusted Applications without UTM so to keep firewall cpu and memory usage in control and it will increase the speed also.

    Dynamically detecting applications requires that the session be established before you can detect it. Otherwise, you're only looking at the SYN packet details, already available in policy routing. To do more, requires visibility of the process initiating the traffic stream.

    Merging all similar ideas, and moving to Synchronized Security category.

    It will be a great help to route Applications and Web filter though a specific WAN connection if need be.
    Eg. Have all traffic go through connection A and only Youtube Applications, URL and torrents go through connection B
