Oh! Can’t browse my favourite websites

I was trying  to open one of my favourite websites and suddenly got a message “You are restricted” . What was that? I went to my security engineer and asked him if site has been blocked by my hosts anti-virus.But he told me that you have tried to open a restricted website. Now there was a question in my mind, who is blocking the website on my laptop. He told me it was some security device that was situated between our LAN network and internet. Whenever any user on the LAN network tries to access any page from any website server, our gateway level device was acting as a guard and was confirming from some content filtering server on internet , if the page i want to see is appropriate or not. After this guard at gateway level gets NO from content filtering server on internet the page was blocked and if the answer from server is YES , then the page was allowed and was send to guard for further approval.This next approval was made by the policies which were setup on the firewall by my Engineer.  Oh … so he has blocked my favourite websites. Now my mind was shifted from my favourite website to content filtering done by the gateway level guard known as ZyWALL , the Unified Security Gateway. Thanks to ZyXEL , i am now more dedicated towards technologies, rather than browsing my favourite websites.
