About the Web Filtering Profiles Page

Type

Description

License Requirement

Integrated Web Filtering

Blocks or permits Web access after the device identifies the category for a URL, either from user-defined categories or from a category server (SurfControl Content Portal Authority provided by Websense).

A separately licensed subscription service

Redirect Web Filtering

Intercepts HTTP requests and forwards the server URL to an external URL filtering server to determine whether to block or permit the requested Web access. Websense provides the URL filtering server.

Does not require a license.

Juniper Local Web Filtering

Intercepts every HTTP request in a TCP connection. In this case, the decision making is done on the device after it looks up a URL to determine whether it is in the allowlist or blocklist based on its user-defined category.

Does not require a license or a remote category server
