WildFire U.S. Government Cloud

The Palo Alto Networks WildFire U.S. Government cloud is a high-security malware analysis platform that is FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) authorized. This WildFire cloud environment is intended for use only by U.S. federal agencies which require a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. This allows you to prevent evasive zero-day threats and malware affecting critical government agencies with the added advantage of a reliable cloud-based service that meets stringent federal requirements for data privacy and regulatory integrity.
