I am trying to block any access to youtube on our machines so our employees can’t watch videos on the job. I set up a black list in web control. I tried using *youtube* but it doesn’t block it. the only way I can get it to block youtube is by entering youtube.com as the address.
I thought it was all set but after doing some testing I found that youtube is not completely blocked. If I go to google and search youtube it will load youtube’s page. After that I can get to youtube by going directly to youtbe.com. If I clear the history in Chrome it will block youtube again until I go through google or another search engine. Meanwhile if you look at the reports in the kaspersky client it says youtube was blocked.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Or have an idea how to fix it? Also does anyone know how long it takes for the changes made in the cloud app to apply to the endpoints? it seems like it take a a long time for a change to go in to effect on the client and it is making testing these settings take several hours.
