Introducing Cortex XDR managed by CBTSLeveraging AI-powered threat detection and response

CBTS adds Cortex XDR to suite of managed Palo Alto Networks security solutions

CBTS is excited to announce the launch of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR managed by CBTS solution, which marks a significant expansion of our managed security offerings. With the addition of Cortex XDR, we stand ready to further empower our clients to enhance their security posture and effectively manage risks in today’s evolving threat landscape.

Since 2012, CBTS and Palo Alto Networks have cultivated a strong and enduring relationship built on providing customers with cutting-edge solutions to achieve their strategic business objectives. Through this partnership CBTS provides managed and professional services for Palo Alto Networks platforms including Prisma SASE, Prisma Access, Prisma SD-WAN, and Prisma Cloud. Cortex XDR joins the suite of Palo Alto Networks professional security services—including Cortex XSOAR—that CBTS manages.

As business leaders increasingly seek consolidated security solutions to manage risks and improve operational productivity, the need for advanced threat detection and response capabilities has never been more critical. Cyber threats continue to grow in volume and complexity, with traditional anti-virus measures often falling short detecting sophisticated malware strains and fileless attacks.

Moreover, attacks are becoming increasingly multi-layered, targeting devices ranging from mobile phones to IoT infrastructure. Organizations with lean security teams may not have developed future-proof security strategies to adequately protect endpoints, individuals, and cloud applications. Many may also lack investments in SEIM and SOAR products or feel bogged down by the complexity of siloed tools and manual processes, leaving them vulnerable to emerging threats.

Cortex XDR managed by CBTS addresses these challenges by providing comprehensive protection, detection, and response capabilities. By analyzing data across networks, endpoints, cloud environments, and third-party sources, Cortex XDR offers unparalleled visibility into threats. Its advanced analytics—powered by machine learning algorithms—reduce noise and improve efficacy in detecting hard-to-spot threats.

Key features of Cortex XDR managed by CBTS include:

  • Well-integrated functionality surpassing traditional point products, enhancing visibility and operational efficiency.
  • Playbooks and workflows supporting prevention, detection, and response use cases, reducing containment time for threats.
  • Advanced analytics leveraging multiple telemetry sources for relevant threat detection.
  • Threat intelligence from various sources, including OEM, third-party sources, research groups, analysts, and cross-customer information.
  • Configuration recommendations and guided policy actions that enhance a customer’s security program and maximize the value of existing investments.
  • Integrations with ITSM tooling for seamless ticketing workflows.
  • Measurable reductions in effort, time to detect, and time to remediate incidents.
  • Customizable detection capabilities, integrated threat intelligence, and machine learning-based detection.
  • Rapid response and investigation speeds, facilitated by manual and automated threat-hunting capabilities.
  • Comprehensive reporting functionalities to track and analyze security incidents effectively.

In essence, Cortex XDR managed by CBTS will equip our clients with the tools and insights needed to stay ahead of emerging threats, strengthen their security posture, and drive operational efficiency.
