Umbrella's content categories organize destinations—in this case, websites—into categories based on the type of information served by the website: for example, gambling, social networking, or alcohol. To block identity access to destinations that serve up content of a type (for example, pornography), you select content categories when adding policies—either by selecting individual content categories or pre-configured sets of content categories. The advantage to adding a Content Category setting is that you can reuse this setting across multiple policies. For more information about selecting content categories through the policy wizard, see Add a Policy.
