Whitelabel and Brand Your Custom Block Page

What is a Block Page?

A common feature in a DNS security or web security solution is a block page. If a user attempts to access a blocked resource through a web browser, the security solution redirects the user to a hosted block page. Instead of allowing the web browser to display a "connection failed" message, a block page provides the user information that the resource is blocked.

Create a Branded Block Page

To create a branded block page, you will have to:

  • Set a logo for the tenant in the tenant's settings
  • Create the custom HTML with the branded HTML
  • Attach the Custom HTML Block page to applicable security policies.

Changing a Tenant's Company Logo

Securd is built with a multi-tenant model. Each tenant in Securd is called a Company. In the company's setting, administrators can upload a logo that will be used in the header of the block page. If you select Yes on the Show Company Logo drop down, the custom logo will be shown instead of the Securd logo.

Editing Custom Block Page HTML

Securd supports a simple HTML editor for administrators to create a custom HTML message. With custom HTML as an option, you can create a block page that aligns more with your branding needs and security awareness training requirements.

Apply Your White Label Block Page to a Policy

Once you create a branded block page, you need to apply the block page to a specific policy. Simply browse to policy you want triggering a custom block page response, and select the custom block page option.

Once you apply the block page to the policy, the network, end-points or browsers subject to that policy will immediately receive the custom response.

Block Pages over Secure Connections

If you are only using the Securd client, this step is not required.

Advanced security features including HTTPS traffic inspection and redirection require users to Install the Securd Root Certificate Authorityand trust the Securd root certificate on their machine or device. If you are protecting devices behind an IP address without the Securd client, installing the Securd root certificate will prevent a broken HTTPS message at the browser and enable the custom block page to be served over HTTPS.
