Restricting social network access to one user account

Hi guys, do you have any idea if it is possible to restrict the use of social networks like facebook into one user account only?

Say only mcafee account could be used to login successfully and the rest are blocked.

Can MWG do this? Seems an advanced app control,

Re: Restricting social network access to one user account

Hello,

an easy way to this is a rule that diferentiates by user:

if authenticated.username = bob, allow URL.Category (Social Media)

For the rest of you users, just block the category.

This approach is more holistic than going by app control. If you want to have more granular control for this user in what he can use in a particular app, then use appcontrol.

Re: Restricting social network access to one user account

Hi Michael,

Actually that is the current setup. But say a company only allows users to access social networks for business works using the company's own social media account.

This is to assure at least the management that users are not using their permissions to access social networks for personal stuffs.
