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