Create a custom list of URLs that
you control access to in a URL Filtering profile that you apply
to Security policy rules or incmatch criteria in a Security policy
rule. For example, you might block the
but want to allow access to LinkedIn.
Define a custom URL
category based on multiple PAN-DB categories
This allows you
to target enforcement for websites that match two or more categories.
The website or page must match all the categories defined
as part of the custom category. For example, PAN-DB might classify
a developer blog that your engineers use for research as
. To allow the engineers
to access the blog and similar websites
into these websites, you can create a custom URL category based
on the three categories and set site access for the category to
alert in a URL Filtering profile.
PAN-DB evaluates URLs
against custom URL categories before external dynamic lists and
predefined URL categories. Accordingly, the firewall enforces the
Security policy rules for a URL in a custom URL list over the policy
rules associated with the individual URL categories it exists in.
multiple Security policy rules include a custom URL category, then
the firewall enforces the Security policy rule with the strictest
URL Filtering profile action for the matching traffic.
