We have a very strict policy for some computers that only get access to specific sites. However under this model sites such as Wellsfargo use a third party to host their content and data, which then gets blocked as well until we add it to the allow list. Any way to allow these linked sites to get through without being blocked?
There is an URL-category named "CDNs" which you could use for this.
Otherwise you can create your own custom URL-category where you include the CDN's you wish to allow.
Its not uncommon that a site such as "www.example.com" will use "cdn.example.com" as their cdn url (which then points to akami or whatever CDN is being used).
Ahh yes, I didnt have a PA device close by when I wrote that msg but looked at what Brightcloud (which delivers the current url-db to PAN) called it on their site 🙂
