As attackers evolve and progress, organizations require increased flexibility that goes beyond the traditional binary categorization and policies for URLs. With the recent release of PanOS 9.0 weve added powerful new capabilities to our URL Filtering service to help keep your users safe without complicating your security policies.

Join our experts as they provide best practice recommendations pertaining to risk, multi-category, and policy actions. Well show how you can prevent successful attacks when you:

  • turn on selective SSL decryption
  • enable credential theft protection
  • utilize automated actions

Take your web security policy beyond categorizing web sites and turn it into a critical component of your security strategy. Join us for insights and answers to your web security questions.
