WildFire UK Cloud

A new WildFire regional cloud is now available in the United Kingdom. The WildFire UK 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 UK by ensuring that 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 remain within UK borders; while 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 UK cloud. Additionally, you can access the WildFire UK 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 UK cloud in subsequent updates. This includes URL Analysis, as well as other future enhancements for all regional clouds.
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.
