With AI and machine-learning at the forefront of innovation for Palo Alto Networks and Cortex, we are continuously finding new ways to improve and advance the modern SOC to revolutionize security operations. Today, we are proud to announce that Palo Alto Networks is introducing new AI-based active attack surface management capabilities within Cortex Xpanse in Expander 2.2, as well as continuous refinement of the latest releases for our Cortex XSIAM 1.5, XDR 3.7 and XSOAR 8.3 solutions.
This launch further expands the advanced capabilities of the entire Cortex Portfolio when it comes to AI and machine-learning capabilities. The latest features found in Expander 2.2 will help organizations better prioritize and remediate attack surface risks by utilizing real-world intelligence and AI-assisted workflows. Organizations can now effectively manage and shrink their overall attack surface by proactively identifying and responding to internet emergencies and detecting vulnerabilities before they become a major threat to an organization. These new active attack surface management capabilities provide security teams with advanced visibility and intelligence that is needed to make informed and powerful remediation decisions quickly and effectively.
XSIAM 1.5, this new release boosts enhanced playbook incident context, as well as more advanced automation capabilities and use cases for playbook development via the Playbook Playground. You can now also leverage the new high-availability cluster for the Broker VM – a critical data collection component – or utilize the comprehensive health monitoring of all the data sources you collect, which is available in both XSIAM 1.5 and XDR 3.7.

Cortex XSIAM is designed to provide a powerful data-centric foundation for the largest and most advanced environments. As data is a primary element of the Cortex XSIAM strategy, it is critical to ensure that data ingestion is highly reliable and continuously monitored, which is exactly what you’re getting with this new Cortex XSIAM 1.5 release.
The latest Cortex XDR 3.7 release delivers new features and enhancements, including improved identity threat visibility, enhanced built-in automation tools, and bolstered endpoint protection. These new features will make it easier than ever to manage forensic investigations while reducing operational overhead. Additionally, you can now ensure streamlined Broker operations using high-availability architecture.
The new Cortex XSOAR 8 delivers all the rich automation capabilities of XSOAR, but with new and improved performance and user experience, plus cloud-native support for SaaS deployments. This latest 8.3 release is focused around enhancing the new platform, which is also relevant to other Cortex products.
In the new Expander 2.2 release, we’ve improved our active-risk prioritization features from our 2.1 release by adding in a new Cortex Xpanse Threat Response Center, which will allow teams to learn about the latest threats and identify the organization’s public-facing exposures. It will also help security teams manage and proactively resolve risks. Additionally, we’ve added several powerful augmentation features that automatically enrich an incident to aid analysts in the investigation and provide faster response using our newly advanced AI-powered incident investigation capabilities and playbooks.
