Chennai, NFAPost: Global cybersecurity leader Palo Alto Networks has introduced a marketplace for Cortex XSOAR, its extended security orchestration, automation and response platform, that empowers security teams by simplifying and harmonising security operations across their entire enterprise.
The addition of the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace enhances customers’ ability to discover, share and make greater use of automation across their organisations. The marketplace allows them to tap into an extensive community of industry experts to help solve their toughest security automation challenges with confidence by choosing content packs that have been through rigorous quality and security checks by Palo Alto Networks and rated by its customers.
“Collaboration across the cybersecurity community is critical to defending against advanced attacks. When organisations share best practices, tools, and procedures, everyone benefits,” said Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) fellow and senior principal analyst Jon Oltsik.
“SOAR systems already integrate and automate key processes and technologies, and now the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace can further amplify the value of the SOAR platform community by making it more effective for all,” he added.
“Cortex XSOAR allows our customers to help solve complex security issues and take full advantage of their existing investments in security technology,” said Palo Alto Networks senior vice president of product management, Cortex XSOAR, Slavik Markovich.
“Now, with the new Cortex XSOAR Marketplace, our customers can leverage industry experts and the power of the community to help solve their toughest security use cases,” he added.
Cortex XSOAR Marketplace launches with content packs from leading cybersecurity providers, bolstering more than 450 existing integrations currently available to customers.
Palo Alto Networks is inviting experts to develop new orchestration playbooks in the world’s largest SOAR hackathon: Automation Rising 2020. One can sign up for the virtual competition and develop innovative new orchestration playbooks for the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace. The competition runs from August 4 to October 30, and has $60,000 in prizes.
