Require authentication to access websites in an AUP category
Before you begin
With the Optional mode, users can skip authentication. However, access is not guaranteed when the user skips authentication. For example, if the Social Media category is blocked to every user except for users in Group A, the users in Group A can access social media websites that are part of this category. To access a social media website, users in Group A can authenticate or skip authentication. If the user skips authentication, they are assigned the most strict policy action. In this case, the user who skipped authentication is blocked from accessing the social media website because ETP is unable to confirm that the user is part of Group A.
