San Antonio, TX, June 3, 2019 – Digital Defense, Inc. today announced the availability of its Frontline.Cloud app on Cortex™ by Palo Alto Networks – the industry’s only open and integrated AI-based continuous security platform. Building on Cortex allows partners to use normalized and stitched together data from customers’ entire enterprises to build cloud-based apps that constantly deliver innovative cybersecurity capabilities to joint customers.  

Frontline.Cloud is the industry's only true on-demand vulnerability and threat asset risk posture assessment app built for hybrid cloud environments. The app lets security teams focus on identifying and prioritizing the most important assets to proactively harden them against an attack without requiring agents. Utilizing data from Cortex Data Lake, the Frontline.Cloud app enables security teams to be more effective in identifying compromised assets in order to quickly prioritize and remediate systems under attack with active threat and business context. Palo Alto Networks customers can see the app in action at the Ignite’19 Conference in Austin, Texas on June 3-6.

“Working with Cortex’s breakthrough AI-based continuous security platform accelerates our ability to bring proactive protection with active threat defense to our client’s security operations,” said Rosanna Pellegrino, SVP of Sales and Business Development for Digital Defense. “We are proud to be one of the first vulnerability management and threat assessment apps to be built on Cortex.”  

“Cortex partners can leverage the vast amount of rich data available from across the enterprise to create AI-based innovations that provide more automated and accurate security outcomes to our joint customers,” said Karan Gupta, SVP of Engineering for Cortex at Palo Alto Networks. “We’re proud to welcome Digital Defense to our expanding ecosystem of developers building innovative apps.”

Cortex is designed to radically simplify and significantly improve security outcomes. Deployed on a global, scalable public cloud platform, Cortex allows security teams to speed the analysis of massive data sets. Cortex is enabled by the Cortex Data Lake, where customers can securely and privately store and analyze large amounts of data normalized for advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to find threats and orchestrate responses quickly.
