The ASA series firewalls support filtering by Websense

Websense: http://www.websense.com/ 

Source: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa72/configuration/guide/filter.html

URL Filtering Overview

You can apply filtering to connection requests originating from a more secure network to a less secure network. Although you can use ACLs to prevent outbound access to specific content servers, managing usage this way is difficult because of the size and dynamic nature of the Internet. You can simplify configuration and improve security appliance performance by using a separate server running one of the following Internet filtering products:

•Websense Enterprise for filtering HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP.

•Secure Computing SmartFilter (formerly N2H2) for filtering HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and long URL filtering.

For url filtering you need CSC module with url filtering licence or you can buy web sense url database  server license.
