(Old) Manage Content Categories (Feb 2022)

To align with Cisco Talos's content categories, Umbrella is updating the naming and organization of destinations into new content categories. While some categories have simply been added or had a name upgrade, others have had classification changes as well. Some destinations that are currently categories will no longer be classified and must be manually updated. For example, destinations previously classified as Blogs in Umbrella's content category, may not all be classified as Online Communities in Talos's category. The Content Category Migration Tool alerts you to any differences in these classifications for destinations in your policies.
