"The most valuable features of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR are its overall track record and features that fit our use case.""The solution is very reliable.""Cortex XSOAR's most valuable features are the playbooks, custom integration, the machine-learning model, and the layout, classifier, and mapper.""The most valuable features are the orchestration because of the way in which it coordinates the loss from all the devices and it provides us with a high-level overview of the critical log information.""Its agility and scalability are valuable.""Many different playbooks are available and can be customized.""They have a portal where you can find any kind of integration that you need.""The automation is excellent."

Cons
"One thing that I don't like is that McAfee products change very often and upgrade very often.""Features such as full drive encryption are lacking in the cloud version."

More McAfee MVISION ePO Cons →

"When Palo Alto bought the solution, the pricing increased by 1.5 times. There's been a 50% increase, which is a lot.""I would love to see more flexibility on what we can display and design on the dashboards.""In terms of improvement, it needs to be more modular. It's not. When you're working in layouts and you create specific apps within layouts, there's no portability right now in order to reuse that code across multiple layouts. I can't take a tab and say I want to use this tab on these other layouts. I have to physically go in there and recreate it from scratch, which is maddening.""I would like to see Cortex become less dependent on Active Directory and group policies to manage the deployment. Maybe I need to update my understanding of how to deploy it, but that's the way I know how to use it.""It is been decommissioned by Palo Alto.""Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR could improve the Panorama feature. We had to turn it off because it was not working properly.""The integration could be better. Cortex, for example, does not work with iPhone.""Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR could improve the look, feel, and management of the cloud console. Additionally, the user could be more easily integrated."

    Overview

    Cloud-based Security Management
    Remove the setup and maintenance of on-premises security management infrastructure, so you can focus on monitoring your endpoints and mobile devices.

    Enforce Security from a Single View
    Easy-to-follow panels and dashboards assess your security posture. Stay current with summaries of the latest threat information and advisories.

    Streamline Operations, Minimize Risk
    Automated and straightforward workflows drive security operational efficiencies. Optional workflow approval requires policy or tasks to be reviewed, assuring higher-quality results.

    Palo Alto Networks delivers a complete solution that helps Tier-1 through Tier-3 analysts and SOC managers to optimize the entire incident life cycle while auto documenting and journaling all the evidence. More than 100+ integrations enable security orchestration workflows for incident management and other critical security operation tasks.

    Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR is a piece of Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response software that redefines what it means for a program to orchestrate security in an automated manner. It is a next-generation solution that offers all of the features of dozens of siloed security operations center tools in one place. Cortex XSOAR combines case management, automation, real-time collaboration, and threat intelligence management to create a platform that can handle all aspects of system security. Teams that make use of Cortex XSOAR can expect to cut the number of issues that they will have to deal with by 75%. At the same time, the speed at which they resolve those issues that slip through will rise by 90%.

    Cortex XSOAR ensures that all of the IT and security tools that you employ function as a unified system. It does this by employing hundreds of integrations that allow you to run a wide variety of programs at once without ever worrying about them interfering with each other. These integrations are limited only by your imagination. They can be used immediately as they are, if that is what you need. However, they can also be customized according to the requirements of your system. This approach provides you with the maximum levels of both flexibility and utility.

    The model that this platform uses is based on a machine learning algorithm. The level of automation allows you to provide more than an unchanging and inflexible blanket of coverage. Cortex XSOAR takes all of the data that it gathers and uses it to expand its protective capabilities. This creates recommendations that you can use to create a threat playbook that can be deployed uniformly throughout your organization.


    Benefits of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR

    Some of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR’s benefits include:

    • The ability to have all of your data collected in a single location. Valuable time can be saved now that everything that security analysts need to know in order to diagnose and react to threats has been centralized.
    • Security operations center tasks can be automated. This allows you to assign management and analyst staff to the most essential tasks. The effectiveness of your organization will be increased, which will result in a rise in your company’s overall security and productivity.
    • Many kinds of data can be stitched together by this platform. Network, endpoint, cloud, and identity data can be combined to offer a more complete picture of the threats that are discovered.
    • Integrated threat intelligence management can notify you about threats in real time. Now you can diagnose and address issues as they arise. You can also assign values to the threats so that your resources are being used in the most effective manner possible.


    Reviews from Real Users

    Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR’s centralized monitoring interface and automation are two features that help it stand out. This might help explain why one quarter of the Fortune 500 companies choose Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR over the competition.

    Peerspot users note the effectiveness of these features. One user wrote, “We were looking for a single pane of glass type of solution that would allow us to physically be in one appliance - be able to work in concert with other servers that we have within our environment. We wanted orchestration and automation. The single pane of glass was the most important part.” Another noted, "The automation part and the playbook creation part are awesome. The way it is responding to the customers and incidents is also very good. In the SOC environment, I guess it will carry out around 50% of the work."
