Scansafe to PANDB URL Category Mapping

Hi All,

I'm searching for the mapping between Scansafe and PANDB URL categories.

Scansafe categories to be found here:

Web Filtering Categories - Cisco

Thanks for any input you can provide.

Hi Stijn,

I am unaware of any documentation for mapping Scansafe categories to PAN-DB.  You can find a list of categories that are included in PAN-DB and their descriptions at Palo Alto Networks URL Filtering - Category List.  You might find BrightCloud to PAN-DB Category Mapping useful if you can find a Scansafe to Brightcloud mappings you could then use this document to better map to PAN-DB.

Hello SDW,

There is no document for scanesafe to PANDB/Brightcloud mapping.

PANW does not support scansafe, so thats the reason there is no document.

However, try to contact your SE, they are good with deployments. They might have something.

Indeed, I also did not find any documentation linking the two together.

not entirely related, but the other option for URL filtering on our appliance is to use BrightCloud.

The above mentioned KB document will give you most of the category mapping between ScanSafe vs PAN-DB (ScanSafe to PAN-DB URL Category Mapping) . You may also verify any unknown URL categorization here Palo Alto Networks URL Filtering - Test A Site

Hope this helps.
