You can integrate Carbon Black App Control with a locally installed WildFire private cloud device instead of a public cloud service . This option eliminates limits on the number of queries you can submit in any given time period.

You can integrate multiple local WildFire appliances with an Carbon Black App Control Server. Analysis requests are distributed among them.
