When will WildFire support file types other than PE?

Hi all,

Like other vendors in the market, I think WildFire should support fire types like images, pdf, documents (e.g. malicious excel file in RSA incident). Will PANW have road-map on this feature?

Regards,

Please contact your local SE or your Account team with regards to this.

As I understand PANOS 6.0 is scheduled to be released this autumn (at least if PA continue to follow their previous release cycles) and by that hopefully there will be an update to both wildfire aswell as available hardware (PA-3000 was released last autumn).

Recently WF-500 was released so you can create your own private wildfire-cloud (that is the data never leaves your datacenter during the analyze): A Private Option for WildFire - Palo Alto Networks Blog

However as sraghunandan said, best is to contact your local SE or Account team to get a more detailed roadmap but also so PA will take an internal note that there are customers out there who are interrested in not only analyzing exe, dll and scr (as it is today) but also pdf, various office docs, java, flash, javascript and whatelse that might be used to sneak in malware in your organisation.
