How have you confirmed that this file is NOT malicious in nature?  As you know, there is both static analysis on a brand new/unseen file, as well as the dynamic analysis from the WF cloud.  If it is claiming to be malicious, I would ask that you do your diligence to confirm if this is false positive.  If so, then you can either create an exception for that signature, or go to the WF portal and ask that PANW re-check their verdict.
