Driven Technologies Achieves Palo Alto Networks Cortex eXtended Managed Detection and Response (XMDR) Specialization

Combines Palo Alto Networks’ leading Cortex XDR solution with Driven Technologies managed services — empowering customers’ security operations

NORCROSS, GA – Driven Technologies, a recognized leader in IT security solutions, today announced it has become a Palo Alto Networks Cortex XMDR Specialization partner. Driven Technologies joins a select group of channel partners who have earned this distinction through operational capabilities and fulfillment of business requirements and completion of technical, sales enablement and specialization examinations. The Cortex XMDR Specialization will enable Driven Technologies to combine the power of best-in-class Cortex XDR detection and response solution with their managed services offerings — helping customers worldwide streamline security operations center (SOC) operations and quickly mitigate cyberthreats.

”Our relationship with Palo Alto Networks continues to grow as we provide our customers with the value that best-in-class services offer for constant improvement of their security posture,” said Michael Morrison, President at Driven Technologies. “As a Cortex XMDR Specialization partner, we are able to bring even more solutions to market, combining Cortex XDR and Driven’s ARMOR framework to greatly improve 24/7 security operations and enable rapid enhancements as new threats emerge.”

”Organizations need effective detection and response across the network, endpoint, and cloud but managing today’s threats effectively is a massive undertaking,” said Tom Barsi, vice president Cortex Ecosystems at Palo Alto Networks. “Driven Technologies’ commitment to attain the Cortex XMDR Specialization will give their managed security services customers peace of mind that the services they are choosing will mitigate security gaps and relieve the day-to-day burden of security operations for customers with 24/7 coverage.”

Driven Technologies’ ARMOR Lifecycle Solutions include 24/7 MDR services, which leverage a powerful automation tool (Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR) as the nucleus of its SOC. With a platform built to leverage the MITRE ATT&CK framework, Driven’s threat intelligence feeds – including AutoFocus – allow SOC analysts to improve threat hunting and create high-fidelity alerts to customers. This drastically reduces noise and alert fatigue while providing enhanced business intelligence with a unique Cyber Risk Scorecard to create unprecedented visibility and improve an organization’s security posture.

To achieve Specialization status, Palo Alto Networks partner organizations must have Cortex XDR-certified SOC analysts/threat hunters on staff and available 24/7. Partners seeking this XMDR Specialization distinction must also complete both technical and sales enablement and specialization examinations. Cortex XMDR Specialization partners combine experienced analysts, mature operational processes and proven customer support with Palo Alto Networks market-leading security products, enabling them to provide customers comprehensive visibility, detection and response across network, endpoint and cloud assets, combined with best-in-class threat prevention and in-depth security expertise.
