Block Google Ads using webfilter

Hi guys,


in our company we use a Sophos UTM SG 310 as our firewall.

We'd like to block all kind of Google Ads to reduce costs in the Marketing department.

Is there any possibility to block ads using the Webfilter firewall? For us, using a PiHole DNS server is out of the question.


Maybe someone of you already blocked Google Ads using Sophos webfilter?

  • Hallo Florian,

    The "Suspicious" category includes the sub-category "Web ads" and that should include Google ads, as nd said in your same question in the German forum.

    Cheers - Bob
