Is QUIC protocol still a security concern?

I've ridden that QUIC protocol developed by google, can be a security risk because is not recognized as web traffic by the firewall (usg 210) and then not filtered correctly.

The issue is still current?

In order to prevent I currently use a security policy, which block/deny outgoing traffic from LAN to WAN, on port UDP 443

Thank you for your support

    As I study for year still now.

    I cannot find firewall on the market that claim it can identify the web request via QUIC protocol.

    Look like the current work-around is using firewall rule to block UDP destination port 443 to force Chorme to go for standard HTTP protocol.
