Good dashboard, and is easy to use, but is not very informative, or complete
Pros and Cons
  • "The information the dashboard provides is very clear."
  • "When it comes to core analysis, and security analysis, Cortex needs to provide more information."

What is our primary use case?

I am an integrator. I deploy and implement solutions for our customers.

What is most valuable?

It is a simple platform to use.

The dashboard is good, it's very clean and very simple to read. The information the dashboard provides is very clear.

What needs improvement?

This solution is not complete enough to help us. We use a different platform that provides us with more information.

In my opinion, it is not a very complete program. I prefer to work with Carbon Black. It's a better solution as well as Cynet. For example, I use Cynet when I check installations, which provides me with more information. It is not easy to use for beginners, but it provides me with more information, which is lacking in Cortex. When it comes to core analysis, and security analysis, Cortex needs to provide more information. Cynet is a complete platform in my opinion.

We are ready to use a new solution called Deep Instinct. It's a new concept of the security platform. It's a very new company from the USA.

I would like to see a feature that allows you to check the endpoints included. I am currently having trouble checking the endpoints when using Cortex. Including this feature would benefit the platform's endpoints.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks is absolutely stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks is a scalable platform.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am currently using QRadar in more than one enterprise, as well as Cynet, and Darktrace. We also use all of the Microsoft platforms with QRadar.

I have a team working on this solution. So I assisted a customer in deploying and implementing this solution. My colleague and I have formed a team. I am a SOC manager, my new role is that of a SOC manager. I don't use it directly, but I try to assist my colleague in working with more enterprises or customers. We have, I believe, five or six different IBM QRadar platforms.

We use several solutions and they are all good, but each one is different.

Cynet is a good platform, but helpful for my team because it is not simple to understand.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks a seven out of ten.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Integrator
