Overview:

Security teams lack the people and scalable processes to keep pace with an overwhelming volume of alerts and endless security tasks. Analysts waste time pivoting across consoles for data collection, determining false positives, and performing manual, repetitive tasks throughout the lifecycle of an incident. As they face a growing skills shortage, security leaders deserve more time to make decisions that matter, rather than drown in reactive, piecemeal responses.

Orchestration & automation for security operations

Security orchestration involves interweaving people, processes, and technology in the most effective manner to strengthen the security posture of an organization. By streamlining security processes, connecting disparate security tools and technologies, and maintaining the right balance of machine-powered security automation and human intervention, security orchestration empowers security professionals to effectively and efficiently carry out incident response. Cortex XSOAR is the industry-leading Security Orchestration, Automation & Response (SOAR) technology by Palo Alto Networks that will automate up to 95% of all response actions requiring human review and allow overloaded security teams to focus on the actions that really require their attention.

Benefits:

An Industry First

Cortex™ XSOAR supercharges security operations center (SOC) efficiency with the world’s most comprehensive operating platform for enterprise security. Cortex XSOAR unifies case management, automation, real-time collaboration, and native Threat Intel Management in the industry’s first extended security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) offering. Teams can manage alerts across all sources, standardize processes with playbooks, take action on threat intelligence, and automate response for any security use case, resulting in up to 90% faster response times and as much as a 95% reduction in alerts requiring human intervention.

Business Benefits

  • Scale and standardize incident response processes
  • Speed up resolution times and boost SOC efficiency
  • Improve analyst productivity and enhance team learning
  • Gain immediate ROI from existing threat intelligence investments

Table 1: Standardize and Automate Processes for Any Security Use Case
Scalable, consistent incident response Hundreds of out-of-the-box playbooks covering a wide range of security use cases (e.g., phishing, IOC enrichment, vulnerability management, cloud security) speed up deployment. A powerful SDK allows you to build your own integrations.
Modular, customizable playbooks A visual drag-and-drop playbook editor with thousands of executable actions addresses simple use cases and complex, custom workflows. Playbook blocks/tasks can be nested and reused across playbooks. Real-time editing, a playground for testing playbooks, and YAML-based sharing make playbook creation quick and easy
Perfect balance of automation and human response Maintain control over automated processes with manual approval tasks available as part of any playbook.
Orchestration across the product stack Automate incident enrichment and response across more than 370 integrations with data enrichment tools, threat intelligence feeds, SIEMs, firewalls, EDRs, sandboxes, forensic tools, messaging systems, and more.

Security Orchestration

Cortex XSOAR empowers security professionals to efficiently carry out security operations and incident response by streamlining security processes, connecting disparate security tools, and maintaining the right balance of machinepowered security automation and human intervention.

Table 2: Adapt to Any Alert with Security-Focused Case Management
Custom views for security incident types Fully customize incident views, layouts, and flows with access control specific to security personas/roles.
Indicator and incident correlation A central indicator repository enables searches and automated indicator correlation across incidents from multiple sources to spot trends and patterns.
Flexible reports customizable to the needs of your organization Widget-driven dashboards and reports offer unparalleled visibility into metrics.
On-the-go incident monitoring The Cortex XSOAR mobile application provides dashboards, task lists, and incident actions on the go.
Automated ticketing process Out-of-the-box integrations with case management platforms such as ServiceNow, Jira, Zendesk, Remedy, Slack, and more enable full automation of the ticketing process.

Case Management

Automation of incident response needs to be complemented by real-time investigations for complex use cases when human intervention is required. Cortex XSOAR accelerates incident response by unifying alerts, incidents, and indicators from any source on a single platform for lightning-quick search, query, and investigation.

Table 3: Boost SecOps Efficiency with Real-Time Collaboration
Real-time investigation and collaboration Each incident has a virtual War Room with built-in ChatOps and command line interface (CLI) so analysts can collaborate and run security actions in real time.
Machine learning assistance An ML-driven virtual assistant learns from actions taken in the platform and offers guidance on analyst assignments and commands to execute actions.
Continuous learning Auto-documentation of all investigation actions aids analyst learning and development.
Streamlined, automated reporting Flexible, widget-driven dashboards and reports eliminate manual reporting and can be fully customized to your organization’s needs.

Threat Intel Management

Cortex XSOAR takes a new approach with native Threat Intel Management, unifying aggregation, scoring, and sharing of threat intelligence with playbook-driven automation.

Table 4: Act on Threat Intelligence with Confidence and Speed
Automated multi-source feed aggregation Eliminate manual tasks with automated playbooks to aggregate, parse, deduplicate, and manage millions of daily indicators across dozens of supported sources.
Granular indicator scoring and management Take charge of your threat intelligence with playbook-based indicator lifecycle management and transparent scoring that can be extended and customized with ease.
Best-in-class operational ­efficiency Boost collaboration and reveal critical threats by layering third-party threat intelligence with internal incidents to prioritize alerts and make smarter response decisions.
Powerful native threat intelligence Supercharge investigations with built-in, high-fidelity threat intelligence from Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus™ contextual threat intelligence service.
Hands-free, automated playbooks with extensible integrations Take automated action to shut down threats across more than 370 third-party products with purpose-built playbooks based on proven SOAR capabilities.

Designed for MSSPs

Cortex XSOAR supports full multitenancy with data segmentation and scalable architecture for managed security service providers (MSSPs). MSSPs can build their managed service operations on Cortex XSOAR to provide best-in-class offerings for their customers and optimize internal team productivity.

Table 5: The Connective Fabric for Your Security Infrastructure and Teams
Ironclad security and privacy Take advantage of data isolation with master-tenant separation and execution isolation with each tenant running as a separate process, as well as network isolation with engine (proxy) for segmented networks without firewall changes.
Role-based visibility and control Update playbooks, reports, automation, and more for all tenants from the master (MSSP) account. Customers can be granted access to their environments only. Third-party integrations can be done at the master or tenant level.
