Why vCloud Tech?Protect Your Enterprise with the First Extended Detection and Response Platform

Prevent, Detect, and Handle Every Threat with Cortex XDR

Too many tools, too many missed attacks, and too many alarms are faced by security teams; today’s isolated security solutions are unable to keep up with the constantly changing threats. Security teams still need to gain the enterprise-wide insight and deep analytics necessary to thwart attacks, even with the deployment of dozens of solutions. Teams need to take a radical new strategy for detection and response because of the need for more security talent. The world’s first extended detection and response platform, Cortex XDR, collects and combines all security data to thwart complex assaults. It integrates prevention, detection, investigation, and reaction into a single platform for the highest level of security and operational effectiveness.

Cortex XDR agent provides industry-leading AI-driven local analysis and behavior-based security to protect endpoints against malware, exploits, and fileless assaults. Organizations can neutralize threats never seen before with a single cloud-delivered agent for endpoint protection, detection, and response. Cortex XDR speeds up investigations by giving a comprehensive picture of each threat and instantly identifying the main cause. Triage is made simpler, and less experience is needed at every step of security operations with the help of intelligent, alert grouping and deduplication. Analysts can react swiftly to threats because of tight connections with enforcement points. Cloud, network, and endpoint events and data are monitored and managed by Palo Alto’s Cortex XDR, an extended detection and response platform. Cortex XDR is a centralized platform that integrates incident prevention, detection, analysis, and reaction elements.

Protect Your Assets with Endpoint Security 

Detect and respond to threats and gather data with a single cloud-native agent. With state-of-the-art defense against ransomware, malware, exploits, and fileless assaults, the Cortex XDR services provides a comprehensive preventive stack. It has the most extensive collection of exploit prevention modules on the market to stop the exploits that cause malware infestations. An AI-driven local analysis engine that is adaptive and constantly learns to thwart new attack methods scrutinize each file. To identify assaults as they happen, a Behavioral Threat Protection engine looks at the actions of several connected processes. Integration with Palo Alto Networks WildFire malware prevention service achieves increased security coverage and accuracy.


Securely Manage USB Devices

Use Device Control to safeguard your endpoints against malware and data loss. You can secure and monitor USB access with the Cortex XDR agent without installing an additional agent on your hosts. Usage can be restricted by Active Directory group or user, vendor, type, and endpoint. You can grant write or read-only rights to individual USB devices with granular restrictions.


Protect Endpoints with Host Firewall and Disk Encryption

minimize the endpoints’ surface area for attacks. You may reduce security risks and comply with regulations using disk encryption and host firewall features. With the Cortex XDR host firewall, you may manage outgoing and incoming connections on your Windows and macOS endpoints. You can also implement FileVault or BitLocker encryption on your endpoints by establishing disk encryption rules and policies. Cortex XDR lists every encrypted drive and offers complete visibility into encrypted endpoints. Thanks to the host firewall and disk encryption capabilities, you may centrally control your endpoint security rules from the Cortex XDR management dashboard.


Get Full Visibility with Comprehensive Data

Integrate all data to dismantle security silos. Cortex XDR collects information from any source so that you may extend the reach of your threat hunting throughout your environment. It automatically integrates identity, cloud, endpoint, and network data to identify hazards and streamline investigations. Alerts from third parties are dynamically combined with endpoint data to identify the underlying cause and spare analysts hours of work. Cortex XDR helps you identify serious risks and close any visibility gaps by using behavioral analytics to analyze logs.


Discover Threats with Analytics and Machine Learning

Utilize analytics and custom rules to identify elusive threats, providing unparalleled MITRE ATT&CK coverage. By automatically identifying active attacks, Cortex XDR enables your team to contain and prioritize threats before they cause significant harm. Cortex XDR continually tracks endpoint and user behavior using machine learning to identify unusual activity suggestive of attacks. A 360-degree perspective of people is offered via an Identity Analytics tool and user risk scores. Cortex XDR meets and surpasses the ability to identify abilities of siloed network detection and response (NDR), endpoint detection and response (EDR), and user conduct analytics (UBA) technologies by applying analytics to an integrated set of data.


Investigate Eight Times Faster

Identify the underlying reason for each alarm automatically. Cortex XDR simplifies investigations by enabling your analysts to quickly review warnings from any source, including external tools, with just one click. The skill level required to verify an assault is reduced by Cortex XDR, which immediately discloses the root cause, image, and sequence of occurrences associated with each alarm. Cortex XDR minimizes the number of individual alerts to evaluate and lessens alert fatigue by grouping alerts into events. Every incident expedites investigations by offering a comprehensive picture of an attack, complete with significant evidence and integrated threat intelligence details.
