Adversary strategies have evolved from simple malware distribution to a broad set of automated, targeted, and sophisticated attacks that can bypass traditional endpoint protection. This has forced organizations to deploy multiple products from different vendors to protect against, detect, and respond to these threats. Cortex XDR brings powerful endpoint protection technology together with critical endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities in a single agent. 

Cortex XDR uniquely:

  • Stops malware, exploits and ransomware before they can compromise endpoints.
  • Provides protection while endpoints are online and offline, on network and off.
  • Coordinates enforcement with network and cloud security to prevent successful attacks.

This paper provides a deeper look at the Cortex XDR agent features, functionality, and technical architecture.
