A new WildFire regional cloud is now available
in Taiwan. The WildFire Taiwan cloud provides the best of both worlds
for Palo Alto Networks customers located in Taiwan — 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 Taiwan’s borders, 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 Taiwan when using the WildFire
cloud threat analysis service. Samples submitted to the WildFire
Taiwan cloud and the resulting malware analysis, signature generation
and delivery occur and remain within Taiwanese borders.
