How are samples submitted through WildFire?

When thinking about setting file sizes for WildFire submissions, the method may be important. I've searched through the whitepapers, but I don't see exactly how the samples that are detected are automatically uploaded using the public cloud. I see it states 443 as ports used. Does it just establish an HTTPS session to the public cloud URLs?

Hi @Mr_Kaplan 

 

Yes, the firewall will upload the files that are transfered through it to one of the different wildfire clouds. Default is the global cloud (wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com). But depending on your organisational requirements you can configure ond of the regional wildifre clouds: https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/wildfire/8-1/wildfire-admin/wildfire-overview/wildfire-deployments...

 

About the filesize: In most environments you shoudn't have any issues with setting the maximum filesize. What are your concerns about the filesize depending on the upload method?
