SonicOS 7 Rules and Policies

About Content Filtering Rules (CFS)

The SonicWall Content Filtering Service (CFS) delivers content filtering enforcement for educational institutions, businesses, libraries, and government agencies. With Content Filter policies and objects, you can control the websites students and employees can access using their IT-issued computers while behind the organization’s firewall.

For more information about CFS, as well as how to license and install it, see the SonicWall Content Filtering Service Upgrade Guide. For how to create Content Filter Objects for CFS policies, see Configuring Content Filter Objects.

CFS compares requested websites against a massive cloud database that contains millions of rated URIs, IP addresses, and websites. It also provides you with the tools to create and apply policies that allow or deny access to sites based on individual or group identity and/or by time of day.
