Web Control interfering with local intranet after Win7 -> Win10 upgrade

I have just began rolling out Win10 upgrades from Win7 and when using any browser except I.E., Sophos Web Control is blocking my outbound traffic to my local intranet site. If I navigate to the sites from Chrome or Edge I just get a spinning wheel, if I navigate to the sites from I.E. they load without issue. I was able to solve this by either (A) turning off web control on the target machine or (B) adding an exception in Sophos Central.


My only question is why would this be caused by upgrading to Win10 as these issue do not exist on any Win7 machines.

    Could you please check if there are any events or logs created under C:\Programdata\Sophos\Web Control. Also, which are the sites which you are trying to access? Are they getting blocked under any specific category?
