Cortex Data Lake

The Palo Alto Networks® Cortex Data Lake provides cloud-based, centralized log storage and aggregation for your on premise, virtual (private cloud and public cloud) firewalls, GlobalProtect cloud service, and for cloud-delivered services such as Traps management service.
The Cortex Data Lake is secure, resilient, and fault-tolerant, and it ensures your logging data is up-to-date and available when you when you need it. It provides a scalable logging infrastructure that alleviates the need for you to plan and deploy Log Collectors to meet your log retention needs. If you already have on premise Log Collectors, the new Cortex Data Lake can easily complement your existing setup. You can augment your existing log collection infrastructure with the cloud-based Cortex Data Lake to expand operational capacity as your business grows, or to meet the capacity needs for new locations. Regardless of where the data resides, Panorama can analyze all your firewall logs and provide insight into actionable events. With this service, Palo Alto Networks takes care of the ongoing maintenance and monitoring of the logging infrastructure so that you can focus on your business.
