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. Cortex XDR provides the following hardened endpoint security capabilities:
The following table describes for each capability the supported platforms and minimal agent version. A dash (—) indicates the setting is not supported.
Hardened endpoint security capabilities are not supported for Android endpoints.
