Infocyte integrates with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR

Integration to automate endpoint detection and response to SOC workflows

Infocyte has integrated with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR, the industry’s first extended security, orchestration, automation and response platform featuring native threat intel management. 

Infocyte is the first partner to integrate through Cortex XSOAR’s new PowerShell, an interface that’s quick for security analysts to deploy and start remediating threats. The combined power of Infocyte and Cortex XSOAR provides security teams with automated threat detection, alert validation and incident response capabilities.

“With recent moves to remote workers and expanded cyber risk, automated endpoint detection and response is critical. Our integration enables Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR customers to quickly add Infocyte’s industry leading detection and response capabilities within their existing SOC workflows with minimal costs,” said Infocyte CEO Curtis Hutcheson.

Cortex XSOAR streamlines entire security processes, resulting in faster and more scalable incident responses. Palo Alto Networks claims security teams have used Cortex XSOAR to automate up to 95% of all response actions, enabling them to focus on critical incidents that need attention. The joint solution aims to significantly lower SOC costs and reduce threat impacts as well.

Infocyte and Palo Alto Networks say the integration will protect customers from threats that cyberprevention tools alone may not catch. 

“A broad and open ecosystem is vital to the successful adoption of any Cortex XSOAR platform,” said Rishi Bhargava, vice president of product strategy, Cortex XSOAR at Palo Alto Networks. 

“We are proud to welcome Infocyte to the Cortex XSOAR ecosystem, which has partner-owned integrations that enable customers to streamline security processes, connect disparate security tools and technologies, and maintain the right balance of machine-powered security automation and human intervention,” Bhargava continued.

Infocyte was founded in 2014 by Chris Gerritz and Ryan Morris, members of the Air Force Computer Emergency Response Team, and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
