Palo Alto Cortex XDR gives Castra tools to accomplish four iterative steps:

  • Prevent
  • Automatically Detect
  • Rapidly Investigate
  • Respond and Adapt

Castra + Cortex XDR

Palo Alto Cortex XDR is a category of endpoint threat detection and response technology that applies advanced machine learning and analytics. This new breed of security technology identifies threats and benign events with superior accuracy and gives Castra contextualized information, simplifying and accelerating our investigations, providing root cause analysis and timeline views of attack activity (just like Exabeam does with all of your other data). XDR allows Castra to take the next logical step and act on behalf of our clients, including isolating endpoints, terminating processes, and blocking additional executions. The ability to prevent data loss rests with the capability of detecting adversaries attempting malicious activity in your environment.

We bend platforms to work in your environment.

Automatic Detection & Response

Cortex XDR uses machine learning to absorb the unique characteristics of your organization, allowing it to differentiate between attacks and harmless activity beyond what is possible with manual analysis or static correlation rules. This machine learning fuels our advanced analytics, profiling, and behavioral threat detection. Through this comprehensive detection, an XDR solution improves the ability to detect nefarious activity, including targeted attacks, malicious insiders, and more.



Cortex XDR delivers best-in-class prevention to stop exploits, malware, ransomware, and fileless attacks. Designed for minimal endpoint impact, the lightweight Cortex XDR agent blocks attacks while simultaneously collecting data for Cortex XDR. The Cortex XDR agent offers a complete prevention stack, starting with the broadest set of exploit protection modules available to block the exploits that lead to malware infections. Every file is examined by an adaptive AI-driven local analysis engine that’s always learning to counter new attack techniques. A Behavioral Threat Protection Engine examines the behavior of multiple, related processes to uncover attacks as they occur.

Castra has written an additional parser and rule elements to help Exabeam take advantage of the data from Cortex XDR and stitch it into the Asset and User activity timelines. By taking this approach, we are adding appropriate levels of Risk, including immediate alarms, coupled with playbooks, and taking rapid action as deemed necessary by our analysts. Castra can add in additional Threat Intelligence with Anomali, pushing IOC detection to the most current level possible.


  1. Data Collection

    Exabeam takes data and information for analysis from Cortex XDR and numberous other feeds.

  2. Action Items

    Exabeam stiches account sessions together over time, relaying action items back to Cortex.

  3. Machine Learning

    Both platforms leverage Machine Learning and Cortex can execute autonomously and accept intergrations.
