1:20pm- Achieving Automation by using your data and simplifying the SOC - Jeff Lear

Transforming how security teams operate requires a new approach fueled by comprehensive data and deep analytics. The Cortex platform delivers a unified experience for prevention, detection, investigation and response to reimagine how you find and stop attacks with end-to-end context and dramatically simplify operations.
