Changing the geographic location where you submit files for cloud-based sandboxing
Last Updated September 25, 2018
Your organization may have data privacy requirements and residency requirements that restrict you from sending files outside of your region. ATP provides an option that ensures that your files are submitted to a Cynic data center within the United Kingdom (U.K.) for sandbox analysis.
When you enable this feature, all files that are submitted to Cynic for analysis are sent to the U.K. Cynic data center. Files are sent to this location regardless of the sender's geographic location. When the network controller submits files, they are sent to the U.K. Cynic data center regardless of where the file submitter is located or where the ATP appliance resides.
If you submitted files for sandboxing and those files are still being analyzed when you enable this option, you must resubmit those files. See the Logging > Actions page to determine which files need to be resubmitted. Any files that the network controller submits which are being analyzed when you enable this option are not analyzed.
If you are setting up a new installation of ATP or setting up a new scanner, enable this option before you enable network scanning. This sequence ensures that no files are inadvertently routed to a U.S. Cynic data center.
