Use a WildFire Analysis profile to specify for WildFire file analysis to be performed locally on the WildFire appliance or in the WildFire cloud. You can specify traffic to be forwarded to the public cloud or private cloud based on file type, application, or the transmission direction of the file (upload or download). After creating a
WildFire analysis profile
, adding the profile to a policy (
Policies > Security) further allows you apply the profile settings to any traffic matched to that policy (for example, a URL category defined in the policy).
