Computer Technology Review Honors Cortex XSOAR’s Enterprise Security ChatOps Platform with a 2016 Most Valuable Product Award


Cortex XSOAR Recognized as Industry’s First Intelligent Bot-powered Security ChatOps Platform for Automating Playbooks, Response Tasks and Collaboration


CUPERTINO, Calif. — Sept. 7, 2016 — Cortex XSOAR, Inc., an innovator in Security Operations technology, today announced it has received a coveted 2016 Most Valuable Product (MVP) award in the security awards category from Computer Technology Review for its ChatOps-based Enterprise Security Operations Platform.


As one of a select number of notable IT companies receiving CTR’s MVP award, Cortex XSOAR’s Enterprise Security ChatOps Platform was honored by CTR’s editorial panel based on rigorous judging criteria that included product innovation, functionality and affordability.


“It is rewarding to be recognized by Computer Technology Review for our efforts to revolutionize the way security operations are done,” said Rishi Bhargava, Cortex XSOAR co-founder and VP of Marketing. “Since Cortex XSOAR’s launch a few months ago, we have seen significant interest and traction from organizations looking to find greater efficiency in their SOC activities and ability to respond to incidents and attacks. Organizations are finding that Cortex XSOAR’s unique combination of automation, ChatOps, playbooks and case management greatly improves their collaboration and security operations.”


Cortex XSOAR’s intelligent automation is provided by DBot, a first-of-its-kind security chatbot. DBot automates actions across security products and correlates artifacts across incidents by using sophisticated patterns and powerful search capabilities. DBot searches in past and ongoing forensic investigations, and proactively alerts the users when duplicate or related incidents are identified. The playbooks were developed by security and incident response experts, while following NIST and other regulatory documents. To help create best practices, new playbooks can be created to satisfy compliance and audit requirements, or for interactive modeling and training of analysts.
