Question to wildfire renewal

Hey guys,

we need to renewal our licenses and I'm thinking if I should renew the wildfire subscription.

The problem is that we are not allowed to upload data to the public cloud (because of data privacy reasons)

So we actually don't really use wildfire fully.

What do you think? Is it worth to do the renewal under that circumstances?

Re: Question to wildfire renewal

You do still get the benefits of Wildfire even without uploading data, since the hash of files is still sent. If someone else has already scanned that file, the result is provided to you without actually uploading the file itself.

 

You may want to talk with your account team about getting a Wildfire Appliance instead. That will allow you to have the sandbox features of Wildfire without uploading files to the cloud at all. It will definitely be more expensive than the cloud license since it's a physical appliance, but it was created precisely for use cases like yours.
