EDU-260: Cortex XDR 2: Prevention Analysis, and Response



This course is three days of instructor-led training that will help you to:

  • Differentiate the architecture and components of the Cortex XDR family
  • Describe Cortex, Cortex Data Lake, the Customer Support Portal, and the hub
  • Activate Cortex XDR, deploy the agents, and work with the management console
  • Work with the Cortex XDR management console, describe a typical management page, and work with the tables and filters
  • Create Cortex XDR agent installation packages, endpoint groups, policies, and profiles
  • Create and manage exploit and malware profiles, and perform response actions
  • Describe detection challenges with behavioral threats
  • Differentiate the Cortex XDR rules BIOC and IOC, and create and manage them
  • Describe the Cortex XDR causality analysis and analytics concepts
  • Triage and investigate alerts and incidents, and create alert starring and exclusion policies
  • Work with the Causality and Timeline Views and investigate threats in the Query Center
