Hello everyone,

Cortex XDR and Cortex XDR Agent have just been updated with a very long list of new features.  We even have a list of videos for you to watch and see these new features in action.

I will list out all of the new features, but will not list all of the details, as the blog would be way too long if I did, so I will spare you all of the details, but will give you links to all of the release notes with all of the details. 

 

Below I will briefly cover what the new features are, but you will have to click on the release notes to get all of the details.
