Using file blocking and wildfire profiles together

L3 Networker

Hi Guys,


Please can someone explain me why we would use the file blocking profile as well as the wildfire profile on the same security rule.

What i understand is that once the file is blocked then no need to send it for the wildfire analysis..Please correct me.


Now what will happen if the file is allowed,will it be sent for analysis and meanwhile what will happen,will the user recieve the file or it wait for the verdict and the required action is taken.




Hi Raido,

Thanks for the response and now it makes more sense.

one more question with regards to the action,how the action is derived for the AV and WF database,please clarify.
