WildFire Global Cloud

A Palo Alto Networks firewall with can forward unknown files and email links to the WildFire global cloud or to one of three WildFire regional clouds that Palo Alto Networks owns and maintains. Choose the WildFire public cloud to which you want to submit samples for analysis (PAN-OS 8.0, 8.1, 9.0)based on your location and your organization’s needs:
  • WildFire Global Cloud
    The WildFire global cloud is a public cloud environment hosted in the United States.
    Use the following URL to submit files to the WildFire global cloud for analysis and to access the WildFire global portal: wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com.
  • WildFire Europe Cloud
    The WildFire Europe cloud is a regional public cloud environment hosted in The Netherlands. It is designed to adhere to European Union (EU) data privacy regulations and samples submitted to the WildFire Europe cloud remain within EU borders.
    Use the following URL to submit files to the WildFire Europe cloud for analysis and to access the WildFire Europe cloud portal: eu.wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com.
  • WildFire Japan Cloud
    The WildFire Japan cloud is a regional public cloud environment hosted in Japan.
    Use the following URL to submit files to the WildFire Japan cloud for analysis and to access the WildFire Japan cloud portal: jp.wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com.

Each WildFire cloud—global and regional—analyzes samples and generates malware signatures and verdicts independently of the other WildFire clouds. WildFire signatures and verdicts are then shared globally, enabling WildFire users worldwide to benefit from malware coverage regardless of the location in which the malware was first detected. Review WildFire File Type Support to learn more about the file types that each cloud analyzes.
If you have a WildFire appliance, you can enable a WildFire Hybrid Cloud deployment, where the firewall can forward certain files to a WildFire public cloud, and other files to a WildFire private cloud for local analysis. The WildFire appliance can also be configured to quickly gather verdicts for known samples by querying the global cloud before performing analysis. This allows the WildFire appliance to dedicate analysis resources to samples that are unknown to both your private network and the global WildFire community.
