The quantity and maximum size of files that a PAN-OS
9.0 firewall can forward to WildFire is increased to provide greater
visibility and detection of uncommonly large malicious samples.
The maximum and default WildFire® file-forwarding
sizes and rates are increased in PAN-OS® 9.0 to provide optimal
visibility and detection. Based on Palo Alto Networks data analytics,
the new default capacities protect against the majority of threats; it is a best practice to use these new default values.
forwarding capacities for Traps, Aperture, and Magnifier did not
change. For additional information about the file-forwarding capacity of
these products and other public and API integrations, refer to the product documentation.
As a WildFire best practice,
Palo Alto Networks recommends using the default file-forwarding
sizes. These values are designed to include the vast majority of
malware that you are likely to encounter in real-world scenarios.
Very large files that are beyond these size limits are excluded.
