Detect and Stop Unknown Attacks
Read the report
Attackers keep finding new ways to bypass legacy malware analysis and sandboxing tools. To get ahead of the constant back-and-forth, organizations require a different approach. WildFire leverages cloud-based malware detection and multiple analysis techniques to identify and protect against unknown file-based threats, while resisting attacker evasion techniques.

In an industry first, WildFire deploys inline machine learning modules on the next-generation firewall (NGFW) to prevent new unknown file-based threats, protecting the first victim without any productivity delay. For threats that cannot be stopped inline, WildFire’s unique zero-delay signatures rapidly deliver protection and share threat intelligence across our community to ensure your organization is protected against previously unknown threats in seconds after they are first discovered.
Going beyond traditional sandboxing.
With WildFire, organizations can gain a prevention-first posture and:
Block Malware Instantly Stop getting unneeded alerts, prevent common threats inline on the NGFW with machine-learning powered by cloud scale analysis,
Eliminate dwell time Cut response time to seconds with shared intelligence to automatically deliver protections, stopping malware, malicious URLs, DNS, and C2.
Reduce TCO Eliminate costs to deploy, manage, patch, and maintain appliance-based sandboxes with a scalable cloud-based architecture
Consistent protection regardless of location
across hardware, software and NGFW form factors
