Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2021

Gartner says that security operations is “not simply a department, team or set of technologies” but rather “a group of well-executed processes performed by personnel aiming to protect the organization from harm.” Gartner also calls out that “security personnel require modern security technologies to quickly detect and mitigate threats and reduce exposure.”*


Cortex® by Palo Alto Networks is a single, adaptable platform for security operations to protect the entire organization. Cortex ingests any data for processing by multiple analytics methods, enriches with threat and risk context from threat intelligence and built-in attack surface management, and automates detection and key aspects of investigation and response.
