Xfinity xFi Advanced Security blocking a website

My xfinity network was recently upgraded with the "Advanced Security " feature.  Since then, I have been unable to access a website that I trust and have been using for over 10 years.  I am blocked on Safari for my Mac, Iphone and Ipad.

 

How do I override xFi's Advanced Secutiry feature for this website to allow it?

 

The website is www.baseballprospectus.com

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

Hi Steve -- Could you please try broswing the site again today and let me know if you are successful?  We've made a change on our end that should allow you to browse that site while stilll having Advanced Security enabled.

Re: Xfinity xFi Advanced Security blocking a website

Xfinity advanced Security is blocking all of my companies websites as suspiscous...seems to be domain based because these are ll hosted differently. 

Please unblock... or tell us if there is a risk that we are not aware of to get it unblocked. 

Ascentsg.com, metrics.ascentsg.com, APP-UGX.ascentsg.com

Please help- I have called support 9 times and escalated with no success... they keep wanted to send someone to my house... but this issue is happning for many people in different locations. 

Thanks!

I disabled the Xfinity security service altogehter.  I could not find another solution and cannot suddenly abandon OneDrive - I have too much stored and backed up there.

I don't think so, thank you.
