1. Go to Firewall policy > Rules. 

2. Click on Add Rule button. Select Host > Next > From Address Type drop down menu select DNS domain

3. Select DNS Domain as *.* then Click Next > Click Finish

4. Once the rule is created, highlight the New Rule. Go to Service column, right click and edit, then select Add. The rule will be TCP, Source/destination with remote port 80,443 click ok and ok again. Then go to Action column and make it set to "Block". 

The above rule is to block all the websites.

Hello Mohan,

Any specific reason, you would like to block internet from SEPM?

When you block internet, this would block SEPM from receiving Virus definitions as well.

Make sure you take a proper decision before you take this step.

Secondly, check this Thread: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/block-sites

Hope that helps!!
