What to do
If the categories that you cannot edit are the same as the categories shown in bold in the table below, you are licensed for 'Web Security' only.
A 'Web Security' license allows you to configure only 16 categories of the 54 site categories that are available with the full 'Web Security and Control' license.
To take advantage of the full list of site categories below, please contact your Account Manager to upgrade to the 'Web Security and Control' license. The additional 'Control' site categories are shown in bold below:
|Adult/Sexually Explicit||Kid's Sites|
|Advertisements & Pop-Ups||Motor Vehicles|
|Alcohol & Tobacco||News|
|Blogs & Forums||Personals and Dating|
|Business||Philanthropic & Professional Orgs.|
|Chat||Phishing & Fraud|
|Computing & Internet||Photo Searches|
|Downloads||Proxies & Translators|
|Fashion & Beauty||Religion|
|Finance & Investment||Ringtones/Mobile Phone Downloads|
|Food & Dining||Search Engines|

|Intimate Apparel & Swimwear||Violence|
|Intolerance & Hate||Weapons|
|Job Search & Career Development||Web-based E-mail|
Note: even with the 'Web Security and Control' license, the site categories shown in red are always grayed out because they contain URLs that are known to be malicious. For more information, please see Sophos Web Appliance: Why are the Phishing & Fraud, Spam URLs and Spyware categories grayed out?
