URL Categories

URL categories are key to URL filtering. Explore the URL categories that sites can be assigned, and learn how to use them in targeted web security policy.
PAN-DB classifies websites based on site content, features, and safety. A URL can have up to four categories, including risk categories (high, medium, and low), which indicate how likely it is that the site will expose you to threats. For a complete list of predefined URL categories, see PAN-DB URL Filtering Categories.
Visit Test A Site to see how PAN-DB categorizes a URL, and to learn about all available URL categories. You can also use Test A Site to submit a URL category change request, or you can submit the request directly in the firewall: select
and open the details for a log entry. Under the URL category, you’ll see the option to submit a change request.
