WildFire Canada Cloud

A new Wildfire regional cloud is now available in Canada. The WildFire Canada cloud provides the best of both worlds for our Canadian 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 Canadian borders, Canadian 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 Canada when using the WildFire cloud threat analysis service. Samples submitted to the WildFire Canada cloud and the resulting malware analysis, signature generation and delivery occur and remain within Canadian borders.
Any firewall with basic WildFire service enabled can forward PE (portable executables) samples to the WildFire Canada cloud, while users with an active WildFire subscription can forward all supported file types. Additionally, you can access the WildFire Canada portal using your support account credentials to manually upload files for analysis and view WildFire analysis reports.
You can submit samples to the WildFire Canada cloud from the firewall, WildFire appliance, WildFire Canada portal, and using the WildFire API.
