Monitoring web activity on your network is essential for protecting your organization and ensuring the efficacy of your URL filtering policy. Palo Alto Networks platforms generate detailed logs, which serve as a source for dashboards and reports. You can customize logs, dashboards, and reports to meet your specific monitoring and reporting needs. If necessary, you can request URL category changes from URL Filtering logs. Use the insights offered by our monitoring tools to fine-tune web access policy rules and analyze and take action on any suspicious activity.
