I recently had an engagement with the Paloalto Cortex XDR Customer success team and previous to that TAC about Windows Firewall.
Cortex XDR pro agent DOES NOT disable the Windows Firewall it actually uses the Windows Framework and both rules In Cortex Host firewall and Windows Firewall are utilised.
I have raised a Feature Request to question this design to have either Windows Firewall disabled if using Cortex Host Firewall, or at least a central place to administer overall rules that are taking precedent.
As yet I have had no feedback.
