Issue/Introduction

After adding a site to Internet Explorer's exceptions, SWG5.0 in Proxy mode lists that site in its Reports as either BLOCKED or MONITORED.

Resolution

Internet Explorer requires that users add https:// in front of a URL to bypass the proxy. Otherwise, the SSL proxy receives the traffic, and it is intercepted based on your policies.
