Problem Description

I want to know if a website is in the Forcepoint Master Database. How do I find out if Forcepoint has already categorized a website?

Resolution

There are three easy ways to find out how a site is categorized: If you have re-categorized a website already and wish to check the current category of that website in your deployment , then use the URL Category tool. If you want to know the actual category assigned for a website in the latest Master Database then use the Site Lookup and Category Suggestion Tool.

URL Category Tool

  1. Open the Web Security manager and click URL Category (under Toolbox in the right shortcut pane).
  2. Enter a URL or destination IP address.
  3. Click Go.
The site's current category is displayed in a popup window. If your organization has recategorized the URL, the new category is shown. The site's categorization also depends on which version of the Master Database (including real-time updates) you are using.

CSI: Ace Insight Tool

  1. Navigate to the Support Site home page and log in.
  2. Click the CSI: Ace Insight Tool on the left navigation pane.
  3. Enter a URL, and then click Analyze.


Site Lookup Tool

  1. Navigate to the Support Site home page and log in.
  2. Click Site Lookup under Tools in the left navigation pane.
  3. Enter a URL, and then click Look Up.

    Note: For Cloud Web Security, select the v7 database.

The site's current categorization in the latest version of the Master Database is displayed. Version 8.x uses the same database as 7.x.
