What consumer and business endpoint products upload all unknown (to them) files to their threat analysis cloud by default? Others use criteria for uploading, others do not upload them and others allow the user to customise the behavior.
I think it is an interesting topic, that fully market aware guys here may know about!

There are several consumer and business endpoint products that upload unknown files for analysis by default. Here are a few examples:

1. Symantec Endpoint Protection: Symantec's endpoint protection solution automatically uploads unknown files to their cloud-based threat analysis system called Symantec Insight.

2. McAfee Endpoint Security: McAfee's endpoint security product utilizes their Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) cloud to analyze unknown files by default.

3. Trend Micro OfficeScan: Trend Micro's OfficeScan endpoint protection solution uploads unknown files to their cloud-based Smart Protection Network for analysis.

4. Sophos Endpoint Protection: Sophos' endpoint protection product, Intercept X, uploads unknown files to their cloud-based SophosLabs for analysis.

It's important to note that while these products upload unknown files for analysis, they typically have strict privacy policies in place to protect user data. Additionally, some products allow users to customize the behavior and choose whether or not to upload unknown files.
