The Shields uses the site’s "reputation" based on several majors reputation database to block access to suspicious sites:
The Shields database lookups are optimized to use little bandwidth by using DNS lookup and have a negligible impact on network performance.
When Artica requests cloud engine, all reputation databases are queried constantly and share data to provide significantly better protection than would be possible using any of these databases by itself.
If any one attack element is listed, it is automatically blocked across all threat delivery methods—providing immediate protection at every point of attack.
This approach safeguards against all components of a content security embedded links, dangerous attachments, and malicious websites.
Whenever a user tries to open an Internet site, the requested domain is checked at the Proxy or DNS Firewall, in real-time.
Domains listed are prevented from opening.
You can override incorrect blocking by adding the domain to the whitelist database.
Likewise, you can force blocking of a site by adding it to the Blocked List.
