Cortex XDRTM 3.0: An extended detection and response platform for security operations centers.
The security business is undergoing a transformation with the arrival of cloud, containerization, IoT and other emerging technologies. With so many data-intensive applications running on such different platforms, security organizations have to adapt to meet this threat landscape. For security operations centers (SOCCs) to be successful they must provide an agile and flexible data protection and operations platform that will deliver optimal performance and meet the changing needs of organizations.
Cortex® XDRTM is an integrated data protection and operations platform that optimizes application security by combining virtual and physical computing, unified communications, secure storage, security policies and monitoring within a single platform. Cortex XDRTM can be deployed as virtualized, hosted, cloud, or on-premises.
This white paper from Symantec provides information about how to deploy Cortex XDRTM on an Enterprise Linux (EL) platform that can be easily managed, how to deploy the platform within a security operations center (SOCC), and how to migrate existing assets to the platform. The paper describes how to customize Cortex XDRTM in order to meet the requirements associated with each role and the best practices for managing a platform deployed on each role.
“Security Operations Center” is a broad category encompassing a wide range of functions and responsibilities, so this white paper provides a broad overview of Cortex XDRTM. Cortex XDRTM can help a security operations center meet the increasing demand for greater automation of security activities while reducing complexity and capital expense and maintaining a highly secure IT infrastructure. For example, the paper outlines how to combine Cortex XDRTM with a multi-tenant, multi-function data center, a cloud provider, a virtualized IaaS environment, a hosted IaaS environment, and a virtual machine manager, all within a single security operations center. The paper also outlines how to manage an organization’s security operations in a secure and flexible way.
The security of the platform depends on the security practices and policies that are applied to the various assets that it manages.
Cortex XDR forensics and third-party data engine.
The paper examines a new data engine, developed by the Cortex XDR team, for the evaluation of the full suite of Cortex XDR features. The paper focuses on an innovative data engine: MQIQe, which is developed to capture and validate the presence of an MQIF record. Cortex XDR forensics and third-party data engine. Network Security. 1 [Web], 10. 1 [E-Mail], 10. 1 [PMC], 10.
Abstract: The paper presents an evaluation of the Cortex XDR forensics and third-party data engine. The study has been conducted with an application to demonstrate the use and functionality of MQIQe, the third-party data engine, as well as a use case to demonstrate MQIQe’s capabilities. The paper describes these capabilities by reference to relevant Cortex XDR examples.
Palo Alto Networks Inc.
Palo Alto Networks, the provider of software, services and solutions for the secure and efficient creation, execution and management of enterprise networks, announced the release of Palo Alto Networks Security Essentials, a new series of security tools that allow organizations to focus on business needs, rather than spending time and resources on managing their network security.
The Palo Alto Network Security Essentials series of software, services and solutions addresses the security challenge that is central to all enterprise network professionals, providing a single point of access to security-related information. The Palo Alto Network Essentials software suite includes a comprehensive set of security technologies that address the complexity, risk, and sensitivity of the data and applications that comprise enterprise networks, including access control, firewalls and intrusion detection, as well as the tools necessary to effectively manage networks, in particular, the creation and execution of security policies and policies for effective security management.
Palo Alto Networks says that its Security Essentials suite of tools provides: “a single point of access to security information; the capability to detect, defend, and manage enterprise networks; network visibility; real-time access control; and a flexible and cost-effective way to centrally manage security policies, both within an organization and within its network using standard management tools.
“Security Essentials offers a powerful and easy to use set of tools to reduce the complexity and impact of critical network security,” said Jim Heald, general manager of Palo Alto Networks Corporate Security. “By using all of its technology, Palo Alto Networks can focus more time and effort on business needs, rather than managing enterprise security.
“We are pleased to have such a well-respected product as Palo Alto Networks Security Essentials,” said Dave Kennedy, president of Palo Alto Networks. “This series of tools can help companies manage their networks with the confidence they need to make critical decisions, while continuing to deliver a high level of customer service. We are proud to have been able to bring such outstanding software to our clients.
Palo Alto Networks Security Essentials: Palo Alto Networks Security Essentials allows organizations to manage their networks in the most effective ways. When used by an IT group or in an enterprise, Palo Alto Network Essentials enables networks to have access to network security resources, information or processes, even in the event of security breaches.
