Is there a way to test filtering for categories within a policy without visiting a potentially harmful website?
Please note that the Direct Connect Endpoint (DCEP) cannot be used with testdatabasewebsense.com links - it will not return the category of the link.
Forcepoint hosts a website for testing web categories. This website is always listed in the Uncategorized category, and therefore has no Risk Class assigned for the site. The URLs are: If this warning is present, click Details and click visit this site to access the webpage.
There are three sections for category testing available on the page:
This page has been categorized in the Websense Master Database as "<category_name>."
If you can access this page, Web pages in this category are not blocked for this user or machine.
This website can be used to evaluate a user's policy dynamically from the browser or to test product functionality. Forcepoint Technical Support may use this website to force a block page in many situations to avoid visiting unacceptable content sites during troubleshooting.
