Network Traffic analysis

L3 Networker

Can Cortex XDR identify or be used to identify unsually high network traffic and if yes can it/we eventually throttle the requests using XDR ?

Hi @Shashanksinha ,


Thank you for writing to live community!

Cortex XDR analytics is a continuously learning, breathing engine which profiles and sets threshold on basis of majorly 4 dimensions of current behaviour vs time profile vs peer profile vs entity profile. As a result large upload actions are always monitored not only on the basis of data sent but also on the basis of amount of data transmitted over a period of time. This could range from eg data of 50mb in 60 seconds or 500mb in 60 minutes or more.  There is no manual action or configuration to scale the threshold or throttle the flow. However if you want, you can write your own correlation rules for the same.


Hope this helps.
