Two new categories added!

We have added 2 new categories to our Categorization Name Service (CNS)

Netsweeper is proud to announce the release of two new categories that further segment the Pornography category for customers who require additional control of Adult content. If you are interested in allowing or denying Adult Mixed Content or Open Mixed Content related sites and are running Netsweeper 4.0 or above, you can simply import a new category revision into the WebAdmin. These categories will also allow you to do more granular reporting on a per category basis.

The following two categories have been added:

Adult Mixed Content

  • These websites typically contain a high percentage of adult-related material. These sites often host images, videos, and other adult related resources. Sites include,,, etc., which are classified as Pornography.

Open Mixed Content

Remember, if you change your categories in the Category Manager, make sure you update your policies. We recommend that these categories are only added during a maintenance window when the Netsweeper services can be properly restarted and confirmed to load the new categories properly.
