I am trying to block Facebook and any other social site from our internal network. Also we blocking all Anonymizer and Tunnels Application group. 

But users are using Opera Web Browser's default VPN proxy extension. They surfing over internet.

Application Control has already Opera applications signature. Unfortunately Check Point can't catch the Opera VPN connections.

Rule on Firewall:


On Opera Browser:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Enable VPN



Next Step:

I did HTTPS Inspection on my PC. Finally Firewall detecting Opera VPN and rule working.

But we don't want to use HTTPS Inspection.
