Webcast: Understanding XDR

by Palo Alto Networks, Inc.Apr 08, 2021

Over the past few years, many enterprises have discovered the benefits of endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools, which help to identify potential threats and warn security teams to take action. But today, many enterprises are also realizing that other threat surfaces, such as networks and clouds, also provide critical telemetry that can help security teams to quickly identify and respond to threats. In this webinar, experts discuss the benefits and limitations of EDR, and offer recommendations on how to extend these capabilities to other parts of the IT infrastructure in order to improve overall security. 

Webcast: Regulatory Compliance in a Cloud Environment

by Palo Alto Networks, Inc.Apr 07, 2021

One thing for certain is that you can’t rely on your cloud provider to assure that your assets are safe in the cloud with respect to compliance.  Further, compliance laws are changing, as are retention rules for even simple information.  Throw in some multi-cloud applications, a bit of remote work, and some shadow IT and the tasks for compliance become daunting.  In this webinar, we discuss compliance, how the requirements vary from your own environment to the cloud, and ways the cloud can impact your industry.  We will discuss HIPAA, PCI, and other compliance requirements, as well as data sovereignty and movement of data within the cloud.
