Hunt Down and Stop Stealthy attacks with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR

Chapter Meeting

About this event

As digital threats continue to evolve, security teams are often left scrambling, hindered by insufficient visibility and automation. Traditional, isolated tools such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) amass vast amounts of data, yet these create a burdensome necessity for analysts to shuttle between multiple consoles to validate threats, complicating operations and decelerating investigations. To address these challenges, Palo Alto Networks presents Cortex XDR™, the world’s first detection and response app that inherently fuses network, endpoint, and cloud data. By unifying these traditionally disparate sources of threat intelligence, Cortex XDR™ enhances visibility and simplifies threat verification for analysts. This revolutionary tool is built to identify and thwart sophisticated attacks. In the face of increasingly prevalent and notoriously elusive stealthy attacks, Cortex XDR™ proves invaluable. Traditional security solutions often falter, unable to detect these threats that are designed to covertly infiltrate networks, frequently via DNS tunneling or similar tactics. However, leveraging DNS data in conjunction with Palo Alto Networks' sophisticated analytics, Cortex XDR™ is equipped to identify these stealthy threats. It can unveil suspicious DNS requests and pinpoint malicious network behaviors, facilitating faster, more effective responses. With this powerful tool, security teams are no longer constrained by the limitations of siloed security solutions, instead they're empowered to hunt down and stop stealthy attacks, significantly enhancing their organization's security posture. soon
