Upcoming Changes to predefined WildFire Actions in the Antivirus (AV) Security Profile

Community Manager

Palo Alto Networks is updating the default WildFire actions included in the predefined Antivirus profile to match the actions from the daily updates. For customers using the default AV profile, this change will automatically enable protections from WildFire updates.


Currently, the predefined profiles do not take WildFire into account. That will change with the Applications and Threats content update that will be released the week of March 11, 2019, and it will apply to customers running PAN-OS 8.0 and later.
