Block users from downloading from internet

I'm curious as to what everyone is using to block users from downloading certain file types (.exe, msi, zip, bat, etc) from the internet? We had websense, now barracuda for a web filter but have major issues with filtering downloads from the internet. The main issues is filtering SSL sites.

Block users from downloading from internet

Hello,

The WSA has a feature called Object Filtering which allows admin's to configure access policy parameters to block certain file types from being downloaded through the WSA. To apply the same settings to HTTPS requests the WSA would need to decrypt the request.

I Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
