URL Filter vs. Type in firewall?

L0 Member

Does the URL filter at have anything to do with how a Palo Alto firewall classifies the 'type' of site?

I noticed that there are some sites that our firewall classifies as 'spyware' that the URL filtering site classifies as other (not malicious) categories.


I'm trying to understand what is the most expedient way to identify and block malicious traffic. It is unclear to me if I should be reviewing sites based on the URL filter and if it is worthwhile to submit change requests for the category? And if the URL filter identifies something as malicious, do I still need to block it at the firewall?
