The majority of attacks and exposure to malicious content occurs during the normal course of web browsing activities, which requires the ability to allow safe, secure web access for all users. URL Filtering with PAN-DB automatically prevents attacks that leverage the web as an attack vector, including phishing links in emails, phishing sites, HTTP-based command and control, malicious sites and pages that carry exploit kits.
URL Filtering with PAN-DB leverages a unique combination of proactive techniques to identify and prevent access to dangerous websites, including native integration with the Palo Alto Networks WildFire™ cloud-based threat analysis service for updated protections every five minutes against malicious sites.
PAN-DB extends your next-generation firewall policies to control web content. Safeguard your organization from the full spectrum of security, legal, regulatory, compliance and acceptable-use risks – with one set of policies to manage and maintain.
Scalable, Fast Architecture
Access to web resources is mission-critical for most organizations, and business operations will suffer without instant access at all times. URL Filtering provides high accuracy and low latency controls, combined with fast cloud URL look-ups and a local cache, versus relying on a single large database download. This approach maximizes speed, accuracy, and the ability to always have the latest URL categories available for policy enforcement.
