The Palo Alto Networks Cortex Data Lake stores the context-rich enhanced network logs generated by our security products, including our next-generation firewalls, Prisma Access, and Cortex XDR. With Cortex Data Lake, you can collect ever-expanding volumes of data without needing to plan for local compute and storage, and it's ready to scale from the start. And most Cortex apps use the Cortex Data Lake to access, analyze, and report on your network data.

This cloud-based logging infrastructure is available in two regions—Americas and European Union. Review the Cortex Data Lake privacy datasheet for details on how network data is captured, processed, and stored.
