Exceptions to SSL Scanning for Reputable Websites

Jump to solution

Hi,

we try to reduce the load on our McAfee web gateway.

Other products offer the option to exclude e.g. Reputable Websites from the SSL Scanning process, based on the rating of the product vendor, with our testing they exclude e.g. google.com and major news websites.

How would we accomplish that on the web gateway?

Thanks,

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Hope you are doing well.

You can create a rule as per screenshot attached inside your SSL Scanner rule set in order to bypass SSL inspection for these Categories.


Look for rule Bypass SSL inspection in the screenshot attached.

 

This is just an example, you can add other Categories as well.  You can also use other properties for bypassing like for example:-  URL.Reputation etc.
