Cortex XSOAR (formerly Demisto) Integration

Create ilert alerts directly from Cortex XSOAR (formerly Demisto).

Cortex XSOAR is the industryโ€™s only extended security orchestration, automation and response platform that unifies case management, automation, real-time collaboration and threat intelligence management to transform every stage of the alert lifecycle. Teams can manage alerts across all sources, standardize processes with playbooks, take action on threat intelligence and automate response for any security use case, resulting in significantly faster responses that require less manual review.
