Threat Prevention

The Threat Prevention subscription adds integrated protection against network-borne threats, including exploits, malware, command and control traffic, and a variety of hacking tools, through IPS functionality and stream-based blocking of millions of known malware samples.

The Threat Prevention subscription is a key component of our closed-loop prevention approach, receiving protection updates from WildFire, based on our global threat intelligence. When combined with WildFire, protections are updated in as little as 15 minutes, meaning your security is always up-to-date and able to prevent the latest threats.

URL Filtering

URL Filtering provides you with granular, user-based controls over Web activity through URL categories and customisable white- and black-lists, as well as protection from Web-borne threats through malicious categories like “malware” and “phishing.”

The URL Filtering subscription utilises PAN-DB, our URL database that automatically categorises unknown URLs, providing you with the latest URL groupings based on current Web page content. PAN-DB is updated by WildFire every 30 minutes, which means you’re always protected against malicious, high-risk, and unwanted websites.
