Stopping Security Silos With Palo Alto Networks Cortex

Security silos can make us miss the important things. Tom Hollingsworth heard from Palo Alto Network at Security Field Day and looks at Cortex and how it can help us get better results from our data without the silos getting in the way.


My Time at Palo Alto Networks

Evan Mintzer attended Security Field Day earlier this year as a delegate. At the event, he got to hear from Palo Alto Networks. He wasn’t too familiar with the company prior to their presentation, only knowing they made application aware. Over the course of their presentation, he got to hear from a lot of people at the company, and discovered how they are working to change the IT security landscape.


Security for You, but Organized.

In this piece, Shaun Bender wrote about what Palo Alto Networks presented at Security Field Day earlier this year. This was on Shaun’s first Field Day experience. We love having new voices around the table, and we can’t wait to hear more from Shaun going forward.


Next Gen Firewalls With a Side of Cloud Services

Prior to seeing Palo Alto Networks present at Security Field Day, Michael Davis saw them at their Ignite Conference. He was curious what the company would add to their presentation to make it stand out with that event so recently in the rear view. They showed off their Panorama next-generation firewall management solution. But the real meat of the presentation was on Prisma Public Cloud, the result of their recent Redlock acquisition. There were also demos of Cortex XDR and Demisto, designed to help combat alert fatigue. It was a lot of information to take in, but had a lot of interesting security implications.


Security Field Day 2

Michael Davis has long been a fan of Field Day events, and now he gets to join the delegate community. He’ll be at Security Field Day this week and he’s excited to hear from the presenters, and to meet the other delegates. Be sure to check out our live stream of the event to watch along with Michael, or catch the full edited video posted soon after.


The Good, the Bad, and the Questionable: Acquisition Activities

There have been a number of notable acquisitions in IT recently, and Tom Hollingsworth breaks them down into the good, the bad, and the…questionable in this post. One of our upcoming presenters for Security Field Day, Palo Alto Networks, made what Tom thinks is a good move in acquiring Twistlock. This should provide them the talent and IP to offer container visibility solutions, which is needed to stay relevant in infrastructure security.
