In an organization they created the categories same as below.
Black list category - to block all websites which are not useful for them
White list category - to allow only limited websites, so that they can save the bandwidth and production
Bypass SSL category - to bypass HTTPS inspection for trusted and banking websites
Bypass Authentication category - to bypass Authentication to some of the websites
Now they can use these categories in Access Profiles section to allow or block. And in the future also, if the organization decided to add some more websites to black list, then they can easily add that list to Black list without modifying the configuration. You can also create or delete the categories from SafeSquid Self Service portal without any interaction to SafeSquid Web Interface.
