The first part of this instructor-led training enables you to investigate attacks from Cortex XDR management console pages, including the Incidents page and specialized artifact analysis views such as the IP View. In the first part, you will also learn how to run remote Python scripts on your endpoints.

The second part of the training enables you to work with Cortex XDR data processing capabilities to protect your environment against advanced threats such as fileless attacks. For example, in this part you will analyze alerts in the Causality View. Also, you will learn about Cortex XDR data collection capabilities, including Cortex XDR API for ingesting external alerts, and leverage the data to investigate threats. The training ends up with introductory modules to XDR Query Language XQL and two Pro features based-on Cortex XDR XQL engine.

Skills Gained

Successful completion of this instructor-led course with hands-on lab activities should enable the students to:
