WebSense to BrightCloud URL Category Mapping

Hello all,

I am trying to find out a document that maps WebSense URL Categories to BrightCloud Categories.

A lot of our customers are replacing their WebSense URL Filtering System with the BrightCloud Database that comes with Palo Alto Networks Appliances, and this would be a very usefull mapping!

Thanks in advance,

Re: WebSense to BrightCloud URL Category Mapping

We recently performed a similar operation.  Our SE stated that there is no tool to perform such an operation.  It wasn't too painful to do a "stare and compare" of the categories.  Once we had similar categories mapped, all that was left was to copy/paste the allow list/deny list.

I've actually written a tool that does this, and am working on polishing it up before I release it -- right now its just a bunch of python scripts ....
