WildFire Canada Cloud

A new WildFire regional cloud is now available in Canada. The WildFire Canada cloud is designed to adhere to data sovereignty and residency laws as well as established data protection and privacy regulations. This provides data residency for WildFire customers based in the Canada by ensuring that sensitive data and submissions are restricted from leaving the Canada when using the WildFire cloud threat analysis service. Samples submitted to the WildFire Canada cloud remain within Canadian borders; additionally, malware analysis and signature generation and delivery occur independently of the WildFire global cloud.
Any firewall with an active WildFire subscription can forward samples to the WildFire Canada cloud. Additionally, you can access the WildFire Canada portal using your support account credentials to manually upload files for analysis and view WildFire analysis reports. Additional analysis capabilities found in the global cloud will soon become available in the WildFire Canada cloud in subsequent updates. This includes Global URL Analysis, as well as other future enhancements for all regional clouds.
The WildFire Canada cloud does not currently support analysis of macOS files.
You can submit samples to the WildFire Canada cloud from the firewall, WildFire appliance, WildFire Canada portal, and using the WildFire API.
