NEW URL FILTERING CATEGORY: COMMAND-AND-CONTROL (C2)

Be ready, Freddy, and be sure the category is recognized by PAN-DB

A new category has been added to URL Filtering. This new category, 'command-and-control,' further refines the malware category. With C2, Palo Alto Networks breaks out specifics within malware. Here's a selected FAQ from our list about the new category:

 

  • Question: What happens if I don’t change the C2 category to BLOCK as the action?
  • Answer: If you do not change the default action of the C2 category to block, all attempted connections to C2-related URLs will be allowed to go through and connect (Oh, nooooo, Mr. Bill!).  

Don't get caught with your urls undone!

 

PROTECTING ICS AND SCADA NETWORKS WITH PAN-OS 8.0

The Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall in an Industrial Control System (ICS) environment

Our expert describes three use cases on Protecting ICS and SCADA Networks with PAN-OS 8. 0 The use cases examine 2FA, auto-quarantine endpoints and GlobalProtect cloud service. The use cases provide additional security measures to protect the ICS network. These measures should reduce operational costs and incident response fatigue.
