MITRE ATT&CK Evaluation: Cortex XDR Delivers Unparalleled Visibility

The independent MITRE ATT&CK framework evaluation validates that no other EDR offering on the market rivals the capabilities of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR. MITRE provides an objective, third-party view into how leading vendors measure up against advanced attacks.

These results prove that Cortex XDR delivers:

  • The best attack technique coverage
  • Superior investigation speed
  • Accurate detection with high-fidelity alerts

Get insight into how the top 10 EDR vendors performed against real-world techniques in the MITRE ATT&CK evaluation by watching this webinar (click here).

Key takeaways from the evaluation include:

  • The best coverage. Cortex XDR accurately detected 88.9% of attack techniques, far outpacing all other vendors tested. Building on its leading coverage, Cortex XDR further achieved the lowest miss rate, providing the best attack visibility, with the nearest vendor missing almost twice as many techniques.
  • Superior speed. Cortex XDR had zero delayed detections, meaning all results were automated and came in real time. Other vendors’ approaches rely on human security analysts, producing delayed results and wasting valuable time that could be spent stopping attackers from infecting systems.
  • High fidelity. Security teams are overwhelmed with alerts that don’t represent actual threats. Cortex XDR has the highest-scoring combination of high-fidelity alerts and enriched telemetry data to provide your security analysts with deeper context and far fewer false positives.

In addition, Cortex XDR generated detections in every single attack phase across all of MITRE’s attack testing scenarios. An EDR tool should be able to detect every step of an attack. The MITRE ATT&ck Evaluation found that Cortex XDR provided unrivaled coverage in two attack emulations, with detections across every stage of the attack lifecycle.
