Increased WildFire File Forwarding Capacity
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 Network’s data analytics, the new default capacities protect against the majority of threats, and is a best practice to use the new default values.
The forwarding capacities for Traps, Aperture, and Magnifier have not changed. For additional information about the file forwarding capacity of these products and other public/API integrations, refer to the product documentation.
