Telemetry is the process of collecting and transmitting data for threat and support
analysis, and to enable application logic. To collect and transmit telemetry to
Palo Alto Networks, you must first select a destination region. If your organization
currently has a Cortex Data Lake license, then your destination region is limited to
the region where your Cortex Data Lake instance resides.
Telemetry data is used to power applications that increase your ability to manage and
configure your Palo Alto Networks products and services. These apps offer you improved
visibility into device health, performance, capacity planning, and configuration. Palo Alto
Networks also continually uses this data to improve threat prevention, and to help you
maximize your product usage benefits.
