Palo Alto Networks Cortex Data Lake (previously called the Logging Service) provides cloud-based logging for our security products, including our next-generation firewalls, Prisma Access, and Cortex XDR. Cortex Data Lake lets you collect ever-expanding volumes of data without needing to plan for local compute and storage, and is ready to scale from the start.
