Securd targeted URL proxy analyzes web traffic for high risk URLs. It examines the domain and full URL of request to determine if it is a threat.
The targeted proxy performs HTTPS security analysis of good sites that are exploited to deliver cyber attacks. For example, a phishing URL is hosted on https://docs.google.com/evil_file.
The targeted proxy filters and blocks against the file hosting malware while allowing access to other URLS found at https://docs.google.com.
Warning: Applies to Static Site and DoH URL Use Cases
If you enable the targeted URL proxy feature in your security policy without installing Securd Root Certificate, we will not be able to inspect HTTPS URLS. This will result in a broken HTTPS transaction and may impact direct connections to a site or features on the site where URL analysis on HTTPS pages is performed.
If you use the Securd Protection Client, you do not need to install a certificate.
