Palo Alto Networks has unveiled Cortex XDR 3.0, the next generation of the cybersecurity firm’s extended detection and response (XDR) solution.

The upgrade will provide updated analytic tools to deal with the increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity attacks initiating cloud and identity-based threats.

More specifically, the third generation offers security operations centres even broader protections across their attack surface. By extending detection, monitoring, and investigation into cloud environments, SOC teams will benefit from improved security analytics across endpoint and cloud systems.

In addition, Cortex XDR 3.0 offers security teams forensic investigation features based on advanced proprietary tools from Palo Alto Networks’ ‘Unit 42’ security consulting group. It also supports ingestion and custom correlations for virtually all third-party data sources.

Tim Junio, senior vice president of products, Cortex at Palo Alto Networks, said: “Palo Alto Networks created the extended detection and response (XDR) category in 2019 — understanding that only by integrating data from across all security sources can we detect complex threats accurately, prevent attacks automatically, and investigate them much faster. We’ve been innovating against that mission ever since.

“With our third-generation XDR solution expanding to cloud and identity analytics, Cortex XDR 3.0 has taken a large step towards being the most comprehensive platform for the SOC to protect endpoints, entities, assets, workloads, and critical data.”
