WildFire Australia Cloud

A new Wildfire regional cloud is now available in Australia. The WildFire Australia cloud provides the best of both worlds for our Australian customers. Customers can now utilize the WildFire cloud-based threat analysis and prevention engine, while ensuring that files submitted for analysis stay in the country to address data location concerns. Note that certain metadata connected to submitted samples, as described in the WildFire Privacy Datasheet, are shared with our other regional clouds. While submissions stay within Australian borders, Australian customers still benefit from the global security intelligence and updates based on the network effect of Palo Alto Networks 42,000+ WildFire customers. Sensitive data and submissions are restricted from leaving Australia when using the WildFire cloud threat analysis service. Samples submitted to the WildFire Australia cloud and the resulting malware analysis, signature generation and delivery occur and remain within Australian borders.
Any firewall with basic WildFire service enabled can forward PE (portable executables) samples to the WildFire Australia cloud for analysis, while users with an active WildFire subscription can forward all supported file types. You can access the WildFire Australia portal using your support account credentials to manually upload files for analysis and view WildFire analysis reports.
You can submit samples to the WildFire Australia cloud from the firewall, WildFire appliance, WildFire Australia portal, and using the WildFire API.
