Set up Broker VM

Refer to the following subsections to learn how to set up broker virtual machines as needed.
The Palo Alto Networks Broker VM is a secured virtual machine (VM), integrated with
Cortex
XDR
, that bridges your network and the
Cortex
XDR
app. By setting up the broker VM, you establish a secure connection in which you can route your endpoints, collect logs, and forward logs and files for analysis.
Cortex
XDR
can leverage the broker VM to run different services separately using the same Palo Alto Networks authentication. After you complete the initial setup, the broker VM automatically receives updates and enhancements from
Cortex
XDR
, providing you with new capabilities without having to install a new VM or manually update the existing VM.
