Objects > Security Profiles > WildFire Analysis
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 (
) further allows you apply the profile settings to any traffic matched to that policy (for example, a URL category defined in the policy).
WildFire Analysis Profile Settings

Define one or more rules to specify traffic to forward to either the WildFire public cloud or the WildFire appliance (private cloud) for analysis.
A WildFire private cloud (hosted by a WildFire appliance) does not support analysis of APK, Mac OS X, archive, and linux files.
