How To: Set-Up Incident Automation Rules and Logs in XDR


Repetitive workflows and manual handling of similar events take up a considerable amount of time and leave you unable to focus on alerts and tasks that really matter. 


Cortex XDR 3.6 now includes simple automation that nullifies redundant workflows, eliminates human error and reduces the amount of headcount required for low tier analysts. Developed from understanding the need for automating day to day activities natively within the product, XDR can now automate responses where we already know the entire workflow, thereby eliminating tier 1 and tier 2 level decisions. This allows SOC analysts to focus on alerts that really matter.


Tips & Tricks: Commit & Config Locks


Palo Alto Networks' Commit and Config Locks are important features that help ensure the integrity of network configurations and prevent unauthorized changes.


The Commit operation, in Palo Alto Networks devices, is the process of applying configuration changes made to the device to the running configuration. It is an essential step in the configuration process, as it allows the changes to take effect and be enforced. Before committing configuration changes, administrators can preview the changes and validate them to ensure that they are accurate and won't cause any disruption to the network.
