In today’s threat landscape, detecting and stopping complex cyber attacks requires advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applied across all your enterprise’s data. Since its introduction in 2019, Cortex Data Lake has empowered network security administrators to effortlessly leverage AI-based innovations to ingest, store, and forward logs from Palo Alto Networks solutions. 


As Palo Alto Networks continues to innovate, Cortex Data Lake (CDL) is rebranding to Strata Logging Service (SLS). 


This rebranding represents more than just a name change; it signifies a strategic shift towards platformization within the Strata Network Security solutions and emphasizes our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions that harness the power of data to enhance network security. Adopting the Strata branding ensures a more cohesive brand identity across our product portfolio.
