Web Gateway


When trying to access a website with a subdomain, you get the Web Gateway block page. Upon further investigation, you find that SafeWeb has blocked the base domain, not the subdomain.

The custom report shows an event like this:

08/04/20xx 08:33 PC1   Critical Spyware   Web Site  Blocked  Test Policy   Malware URL


The Web Gateway will block any subdomains of a domain listed as Unsafe on Norton SafeWeb
