As the volume and variety of endpoints grow, traditional signature-based and pre-programmed methods for security and anti-malware struggle to keep up. Not only are devices proliferating, but threat types and false positives are too — not to mention the diverse ways attacks can manifest. As organizations scramble to keep pace with both the value and risks of IoT, they are looking for new tools to mitigate threats. Attackers always look for quick ways to steal data. Using readily available automated tools and advanced techniques, they can do so with ease, leaving your traditional network defenses ineffective.
XDR is a new approach to threat detection and response, a key element of defending an organization’s infrastructure and data from damage, unauthorized access, and misuse. Palo Alto’s Cortex XDR is the industry’s first extended detection and response platform that runs on an integrated endpoint, network, and cloud data to reduce the noise and focus on real threats.
The Cortex XDR™ platform delivers a unified experience for prevention, detection, investigation and response to reimagine how you find and stop attacks and dramatically simplify operations. Cortex Data Lake allows in identifying and then stopping sophisticated attacks that requires advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning across all the enterprise’s data. It delivers visibility into data across networks, clouds and endpoints while applying analytics and automation to address today’s increasingly sophisticated threats. With XDR, security teams can:
- Identify hidden, stealthy and sophisticated threats proactively and quickly
- Track threats across any source or location within the organization
- Increase the productivity of the people operating the technology
- Get more out of their security investments
- Conclude investigations more efficiently
From a business perspective, XDR enables organizations to prevent successful cyberattacks as well as simplify and strengthen security processes. This, in turn, enables them to better serve users and accelerate digital transformation initiatives – because when users, data and applications are protected, companies can focus on strategic priorities.
