Policy Settings

Within a policy, Umbrella evaluates the following policy settings, starting with your policy's Allow destination lists.

  • Destination lists, allowed destinations
  • Allowed applications
  • With the intelligent proxy enabled, match an application URL in the Allow lists.
  • Security categories and Integration Block lists
  • Destination lists, blocked destinations
  • With the intelligent proxy enabled, match a Blocked URL in the "unknown domains" list.
  • Botnet
  • With the intelligent proxy enabled, match any URL in the "unknown domains" list.
  • Blocked applications
  • Blocked content categories
  • With the intelligent proxy enabled, check newly seen domains with the antivirus (AV) engine and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP).
