The "HTTPS Sites Filtering Using Websense" feature is an enhancement of the SonicWall Content Filtering Service. It allows organizations that have deployed a joint SonicWall and Websense Enterprise solution to enforce web access policies on HTTPS connections. Versions of SonicOS which predate 188.8.131.52 support enforcement of web access policies via Websense on HTTP connections only; all HTTPS connection are passed without checking the policy.
HTTPS sites filtering may be enforced without the need for an additional content filtering license.
Steps to active this feature:
Login to the SonicWall appliance and navigate to Security Services (menu) > Content Filter (page).
Set the Content Filtering Type to "Websense Enterprise" and click the "Configure" button.
Enable the "Enable HTTPS Content Filtering" checkbox and click the OK button
