Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global  cybersecurity leader, announced today that it has been positioned as a Leader in the 2023  Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP). Palo Alto Networks  provides an EPP as part of Cortex XDR®, which is designed to prevent the latest  endpoint threats. As the original visionary behind extended detection and response, Cortex XDR  extends prevention capabilities by ingesting security data from the network, cloud and other  sources to accurately detect and respond to never-before-seen attacks, delivering superior  security outcomes to its customers. 

Gonen Fink, SVP, Cortex Products, Palo Alto Networks, said, “We’re proud of this Gartner recognition for our endpoint protection solution and believe it’s a  testament to our commitment to building our endpoint vision with Cortex XDR. In an era where  threat actors operate with unprecedented speed, organizations require a solution leveraging AI  and automation's power to elevate their security posture. Our endpoint protection capabilities  have helped organizations significantly reduce detection, response, and remediation times,  delivering unparalleled security outcomes for organizations worldwide."  

This announcement comes on the heels of another endpoint protection recognition for Palo Alto  Networks. In September, Cortex XDR delivered 100% protection and detection in the 2023  MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluation.  

Many organizations struggle to keep up with the rapidly evolving pace, scale, and complexity of  the current threat landscape, particularly when they rely on traditional technologies. Palo Alto  Network’s Cortex XDR offers a holistic approach to safeguarding against threats, unauthorized  access, and misuse, ensuring comprehensive protection for organizations. 

XDR has emerged as a game-changer for security teams looking to streamline and efficiently  address cybersecurity challenges. Beyond delivering endpoint protection, Cortex XDR excels in  precisely detecting threats across various data sources. This is achieved by seamlessly  integrating endpoint activity with events occurring throughout the environment, leveraging  machine learning to analyze behavior patterns and identify anomalies that signify potential  attacks. Cortex XDR also helps to speed investigations by providing a complete end-to-end  story of each attack. Users can view the root cause of any alert with a single click and swiftly  stop attacks across environments. 

Cortex XDR provides customers with comprehensive security protection within a single product.  This includes threat detection and response through the ITDR module and new features and  capabilities in XDR 3.8 for enhanced cross-OS protection.

Last year, Palo Alto Networks introduced Unit 42 MDR, which is built on Cortex XDR technology and combines the power of  Cortex with Unit 42®threat intelligence and analyst expertise to detect and respond to  cyberattacks around the clock. 

Gartner recognized Palo Alto Networks for its ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.  Cortex XDR's product strategy strength is based on an innovative workplace security suite and  tight capability integrations. With this recent acknowledgment, Palo Alto Networks is now a  recognized Leader in a number of Magic Quadrant reports. The full list includes EPP, Security  Service Edge (SSE), Single-Vendor SASE, SD-WAN, and Network Firewalls.
