We couldn’t end the month of March without celebrating all the amazing women out there. In honor of Women’s History month, we spent some time with Montre D Bhiwandiwala, leading the Global GTM and Enablement team under Strata Customer Success Strategy and Enablement at Palo Alto Networks. As a leader, she shared what the month of March meant to her and how she believed women have shaped and changed the workplace. In case you missed it, here is her story.

There’s a brand-new look, feel and Customer Journey Guide on the Cortex XDR and Cortex XSOAR technology areas on LIVEcommunity. As a refresher, Cortex XDR allows you to rapidly detect and respond to threats across your networks, endpoints and clouds. Cortex XSOAR enables SOC analysts to manage alerts across all sources, standardize processes with playbooks, and automate response for any security use case.
If you’re a customer, be sure to Check out both the Cortex XDR page and Cortex XSOAR page its Customer Journey Guide to engage in discussions and review helpful resources dedicated to both of these technologies.

A few weeks ago, headlines around the world were focused on news that four critical zero-day vulnerabilities inside Microsoft Exchange Server had allowed attackers to gain access to Microsoft Exchange Servers, enabling them to execute arbitrary code and potentially gain long-term access to the systems that were infected.

Recently, a new URL Filtering category, “real-time-detection”, was added to the category list. In short, this feature is currently in beta testing.

We are super excited that we have introduced digital events! Having digital events provides interaction while learning and — most importantly — they increase your connection to one another and give you opportunities to meet experts and thought leaders across the Palo Alto Networks ecosystem. Our first digital event was an Ask Me Anything (AMA) with Professional Services on April 8. AMA events are Q&A sessions focused on specific topics where you can connect with experts and community members to help you on your journey of finding answers. More are on the way!
In the near future, we’re also introducing Interactive Events, which will involve streaming of live events around a variety of different topics, with all the benefits of an in-person event and also easy to navigate. More information is coming soon on the Events area!
