The Advanced WildFire global cloud (U.S.) and
regional clouds can analyze URLs, and by extension, email links,
to provide standardized verdicts and reports through the WildFire API
. By aggregating
threat analysis details from all Palo Alto Networks services, including
PAN-DB, Advanced WildFire is able to generate a more accurate verdict
and provide consistent URL analysis data.
The URL analyzers operating in the Advanced WildFire
global cloud processes URL feeds, correlated URL sources (such as
email links), NRD (newly registered domain) lists, PAN-DB content,
and manually uploaded URLs, to provide all Advanced WildFire clouds
with the improved capabilities, without affecting GDPR compliance.
After a URL has been processed, you can retrieve the URL analysis
report, which includes the verdict, detection reasons with evidence,
screenshots, and analysis data generated for the web request. You
can also retrieve web page artifacts (downloaded files and screenshots)
seen during URL analysis to further investigate anomalous activity.
