howto submit files for analysis via WildFire

The Palo Alto  wildfire portal allows for you to submit files for analysis using the WildFire Analysis within the security policy. The process requires you to have a PA firewall  license and portal access & reachability.

The firewall can also submit suspect files also. In this post we will look at a manual process. You have upto 1K submittals that you can do per-day. The hard coded default size limits is 10MB or less. Not all files are supported.



After submittal , you can use both the dashboard or summary to get  status on file verdicts.

Ensure tcp-port 443 is allowed to  if you are behind a upstream filter or firewall.



The WildFire reports are detailed and can provide insight with it's findings.
