Bing Safe Search is not supported on InterScan Web Security (IWSx) products

Summary

IWSx products include support for a Safe Search Mode which can be used to filter out adult sites and content from the search results for different browsers and websites (Google, Yahoo!, Bing and YouTube).

In IWSVA, this option can be found in the web UI under HTTP > URL Filtering > Policies > Safe Search Engine.

In IWSaaS / Hybrid, this option can be found in the web UI under Policies > Global Settings > Safe Search Mode Settings.

However, Bing recently changed the Safe Search behaviour, so this option is not supported anymore on IWSx products.

Details
Public

Currently, the Safe Search behavior in Bing is fully controlled by the server side.

The options for enabling Safe Search in Bing are:

  • Change the configuration in your Bing account.
  • Modify the DNS records in order to access different web servers for the queries.

In either case, the Safe Search option can not be checked on the IWSx side.

For more information, check the Bing article about Blocking Adult Content with SafeSearch.
