Check Point URL Filtering sometimes blocking sometimes not a URL

Hello;

Am facing an issue with checkpoint behaving weirdly with a URL where the URL is sometimes blocked and sometimes allowed for the user.

Anyone who is already faced that?

Most probably it is a HTTPS site and HTTPS scanning is not turned on?

There are many of these type of issues and the most heard response fro TAC at the moment is to turn on the HTTPS scanning.

I agree with Maarten here, I guess it is the same site with HTTP and HTTPS, All proxies has this issue of not being able to block redirect to a block page of HTTPS traffic without HTTPS inspection is enabled, HTTPS traffic can be blocked without HTTPS inspection but you cant redirect them to a block page, customer will only see a page cannot be displayed error.

Yeah Correct. Please specify that you are facing issue with only https sites?

If it is true then you need to enable https scan. Also you can do "categorized https sites"

URL Filtering Blade --> HTTPS Inspection --> Engine Settings --> Categorize https sites
