New Delhi, February 28, 2019 — Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today introduced three significant advancements – Cortex, Cortex XDRTMand TrapsTM 6.0, aimed at harnessing the power of advanced AI and machine learning to transform how security will be managed in the future.While the Cortex Data Lake and Traps 6.0 will be immediately made availableto customers worldwide, Cortex XDR will be available to customers on March 4, 2019.
Cortex, the industry’s only open and integrated, AI-based continuous security platform allows security operations teams to speed the analysis of massive data sets.Traps 6.0 acts as the ultimate data collection sensor for Cortex Data Lake, gathering the most comprehensive endpoint security data in the industry.
Cortex XDR, the first-of-its-kind detection, investigation and response product that natively integrates network, endpoint and cloud data, uncovers threats using behavioral analytics, accelerates investigations with automation, and stops attacks before damage is done through tight integration with existing enforcement points.
“While detection and response are integral components of cybersecurity defense, the current model of disjointed standalone products leaves organizations with blind spots and conflicting data,” said Lee Klarich, chief product officer at Palo Alto Networks. “We believe the only way to solve this is with best-in-class prevention, combined with the ability to normalize and analyze data at scale from as many sources as possible, applying AI and machine learning to automatically detect and quickly respond to threats.”
