As threats and attacks evolve, many organisations find that traditional methods and products are limited in their scope and effectiveness. Compounding the problem, the growing cyber security skills shortage means many companies don’t have a dedicated team that can view and respond to threats 24/7.
For enterprises that are now choosing to outsource their security operations, Wizard Cyber can deliver round-the-clock monitoring, analysis and coordinated response to secure your most critical assets with Cortex™ AI-based continuous security platform. Today, with Cortex XDR cloud-based detection and response, we can provide managed threat hunting, investigation and response across network, endpoint and cloud environments.
Leverage various services around Cortex XDR, from advanced threat hunting to compliance, including:
- Managed prevention
- Automated detection
- Risk assessment
- Simplified incident response
Meet rigorous enterprise SLAs: Quickly adapt services to meet the world’s ever-changing cyber security challenges.
Lower operational costs: Maximise resources by automating manual processes across Tier 1, 2 and 3 service levels.
Reduce response times: Automate the investigation and analysis of security alerts as well as cut response times.
XDR Takes Detection and Response to a New Level
Palo Alto Networks is introducing a breakthrough approach to security operations by increasing visibility as well as the speed of threat detection, investigation, and resolution. It’s called XDR, an evolution of the detection and response category. The “X” stands for any data source, be it network, endpoint, or cloud, with a focus on force-multiplying SOC productivity though automation. Complete visibility provides a holistic picture of the organisation’s activity by linking data from multiple sources so there’s no more manual data correlation and nowhere for threats to hide.
Integration pulls data from external sources, such as security alerts and global threat intelligence, to add insights.
Automation merges critical data onto a single pane of glass while drawing conclusions for security analysts, doing in seconds what normally takes hours with years of experience. The result is simplified investigations across security operations, reducing the time it takes to discover, hunt, investigate, and respond to any form of threat.
XDR ushers in a new era of heuristics, analytics, and modeling, applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to
rapidly detect and stop the most sophisticated threats. As it tracks threats across any source or location in an organization’s infrastructure, XDR can automate containment, reconstruct each step of an attack to provide a clear sequence of events, apply threat intelligence, and close gaps for future prevention. This speeds time to resolution and frees analysts from intensive investigation. Importantly, XDR should be delivered as a complete cloud offering to ensure ease of deployment.
Automate detection with AI
Cortex XDR uncovers every step of an attack by applying machine learning to rich network, endpoint and cloud data. Working when you are not, Cortex XDR outsmarts attackers by detecting behavioral anomalies indicative of attacks. You can take advantage of over 100 predefined rules or build custom ones to identify threats to high-value assets.
Cut investigation time 88%
By consolidating alerts into incidents, Cortex XDR reduces the alerts to review by 50x, on average. Each incident provides a complete picture of an attack, with integrated threat intelligence and actionable details. Automated root cause analysis reveals the source and the sequence of events for any alert with a single click, simplifying triage and analysis.
Quickly eliminate threats
Your security team can instantly contain any threat from the Cortex XDR console. You can easily apply knowledge gained from each investigation to protect against future threats. By simplifying operations and continually reducing your attack surface, you can gain more value from your existing security investments.
Cortex XDR allows us to:
- Automatically detect sophisticated attacks by analysing network, endpoint and cloud data
- Simplify & speedup investigations with automated root cause analysis and timeline analysis
- Contain and coordinate response for any threat across all enforcement points
- Streamline threat hunting with powerful search capabilities for behavioural threats
Log all the data you need without compromise
Cortex XDR leverages Cortex Data Lake for efficient, scalable cloud-based log storage. It provides an operationally efficient and cost-effective way to store large volumes of data for months to support investigations.
Use existing infrastructure for detection and response
Cortex XDR avoids the need to deploy new, single-purpose hardware and software by using your Palo Alto Networks products for data collection and enforcement. All Cortex XDR subscriptions include Traps™ endpoint protection and response standard, providing you the best endpoint protection available.
Gain round-the-clock security with managed services
Achieve peace of mind by engaging experts to continuously hunt and investigate threats. Palo Alto Networks has partnered with leading managed service providers to deliver 24/7, year-round managed services.
Malware and fileless attacks
Cortex XDR uncovers known and unknown malware by detecting attack behaviors and anomalous activity associated with malware. Analysts can also search endpoints for indicators of compromise.
Cortex XDR detects the anomalous activities that attackers carry out as they move around the network looking for valuable data.
By profiling behavior, Cortex XDR identifies behavioral anomalies, such as internal reconnaissance and credential abuse, to spot attacks.
Cortex XDR enables your organization to follow security best practices by monitoring user activity and identifying risky behavior and policy violations.
