Use a WildFire analysis profile to enable the firewall
to forward unknown files or email
links for WildFire analysis. Specify files to be forwarded
for analysis based on application, file type, and transmission direction
(upload or download). Files or email links matched to the profile rule
are forwarded either the WildFire public cloud or the WildFire private
cloud (hosted with a WF-500 appliance), depending on the analysis
location defined for the rule.
You can also use the WildFire analysis profiles to set up a Wildfire hybrid cloud deployment.
If you are using a WildFire appliance to analyze sensitive files
locally (such as PDFs), you can specify for less sensitive files
types (such as PE files) or file types that are not supported for
WildFire appliance analysis (such as APKs) to be analyzed by the
WildFire public cloud. Using both the WildFire appliance and the WildFire
cloud for analysis allows you to benefit from a prompt verdict for
files that have already been processed by the cloud, and for files
that are not supported for appliance analysis, and frees up the
appliance capacity to process sensitive content.
