Block Proxy Avoidance Sites

For tunnelling applications or web traffic? If applications, then they are most probably using the HTTP CONNECT Method, there is a signature built into the Cisco IPS for that. You can set the action to Deny for that signature. But test it out before :). Also exclude your genuine proxy servers from this signature using Event Action Filters.

Is there a legitimate way of doing this for those who are tunneling HTTP traffic to avoid Websense? Obviously you can block the proxy sites in Websense, but there are so many new ones every day...

Well you can use an ACL to block all outgoing traffic on port 80/443 EXCEPT when its sourced from your proxy servers?

We arn't using proxy servers. We need a way for the IPS sensor to report that someone is using an outside proxy... maybe some sort of long URL warning?

Do you really think this will block 'proxy avoidance sites'? Or just the proxies users put in their browser's?
