Hardened Endpoint Security

By hardening your endpoints with Cortex XDR you can make these endpoints more secure and safer from attackers.
Cortex
XDR
enables you to extend the security on your endpoints beyond the
Cortex
XDR
agent built-in prevention capabilities to provide an increased coverage of network security within your organization. By leveraging existing mechanisms and added capabilities, the
Cortex
XDR
agent can enforce additional protections on your endpoints to provide a comprehensive security posture.
From
