Cortex XDR Managed Threat Hunting Expected in Early June


Security teams rarely have the time and/or the luxury to view and respond to threats, let alone to proactively hunt them. Often these teams are too preoccupied managing alerts, policies and everything else. It's no secret that there's a cybersecurity skills shortage and even the most developed and skilled security teams are experiencing that traditional methods just aren't doing the trick, and they need help in handling the sheer volume of threats and attacks that keep on evolving.


We’re happy to tell you that the help you need has arrived.
