How to configure:
Security > North South Security > URL Analysis
You need to enable the service which is disabled by default

Yes but only if you really mean it
Confirm the status is up – this can take a while
Next we will be creating Custom Context Profiles for URL Analysis
While remaining on the URL Analysis > Settings tab
Click Set under Profiles
Add Context Profile
Provide a name then click Set under Attributes
I tend to select all options but you could just select what you are analyzing for
Next we need to create a Gateway Firewall Rule for the T1 Router in our environment
Then Provide the Policy a name
Next we need to add a rule
Give the Rule a name like URL Rule
Leave Sources as Any
Leave Destination as Any
Add DNS and DNS-UDP
Click the edit under Context Profiles
Select DNS then apply
Finally, leave the T1 default and allow as default.
Generate web traffic
Log into one of your internet facing virtual machines and go to different web pages.
