Web filtering in Cortex?



We have just recently implemented Cortex XDR for endpoint protection and have a question about web filtering.  Are there profiles/polices in Cortex XDR that can enable any web filtering features or is web filtering strictly a firewall feature?

Hi There,

Cortex is not meant to do web filtering. You can enable host firewall which will do only layer4-layer3 level filtering but not layer 7 filtering.
