[ISA570] Application Control block https

Dear Community,

we've purchased an ISA570. Now we want to block some sites like Facebook Applications and Flickr.
I've tried out this feature but it block only http trafic, I've got no chance to block https traffic.
What can I do for solving this problem?

Thank you in advance.
Kind regards

Hi, i asked a similar



i asked a similar question a year ago ( and a Cisco representative answered that https content inspection is "on the road map".


However, I don't believe that anymore (there have been many more promises about "on the road-map features" and none of them have made it to realization so far).


Throw the ISA away. Although it is a nice piece of hardware, the software is still incomplete and buggy. Also the device is already legacy and likely the support will not get better in the future...


The hardware of the ISA can't

The hardware of the ISA can't handle SSL inspection, this wastes too many cpu which it doesn't have.

Since ISA is EoS anncounced there won't be a successor with more power.
