Important Facts around Web filtering
Black and White listing is not enough
Many web gateways and firewalls allow administrators to create blacklists where all URLs or web destinations are allowed (default allow) other than those in the blacklist.
Alternatively all URLs are blocked (default block) other than those in a whitelist. This was potentially manageable and useful in the early days of the Internet, but today with literally billions of URLs the task of maintaining lists is near-on impossible.
