Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks Scalability

Luke Teeters
Lead IT Security Analyst at a mining and metals company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Scalability is great with servers and workstations. At a moment's notice, you can add hundreds of endpoints. With Traps 5 being on the cloud, there is no scalability risk. You're not going to overload it, as it is a cloud portal. It is their problem, not yours. If you have any issues, call support. I'm confident I can push the client out to 1000 machines, and it will still check in. We have over 2500 people in our organization using Traps (the entire organization). View full review »

It is scalable. We had 150 end users. The end users ranged from the manager level to the supervisor level. These users include salespeople who carry their laptops when travel out of the country on business trips. View full review »

Network Manager of Cyber Defence at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
We had no issue with scalability. We deployed to 220 machines in one go with no problem. We had 130 users. Some people were using many machines. The users were mostly analysts. Ten to 20 of the users were IT people and the rest were doing analysis work on satellites. It was being used extensively, 100 percent in our case. Even the serves had it running. Everybody had Traps installed. View full review »

Security Engineer at US Acute Care Solutions
It is definitely scalable. Primarily, it is just being used by myself. The help desk also uses it. There are probably a total of around ten users. We've deployed it to about 1500 endpoints so far. There is a possibility that we may expand our usage, but not in the foreseeable future. We are at pretty much at 100 percent deployment at this point. View full review »

Security Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
It's very easy to scale if you have file availability. If it's more clear, we can do high availability, but it's a bit tricky. We deployed this for 4,000 endpoints, and it was very easy. Two ASM core servers were enough to deploy it for 4,000 plus endpoints. These are enterprises, not SMBs. They're government institutions. View full review »

Manager of InfoSec at Joann Fabrics
This software exists on every workstation and server in our company with ~10,000 people using the solution. For on-prem, we run 3 nodes and it handles the load just fine. We could always add more nodes if necessary. For the SaaS solution, that is all on Palo Alto's side. View full review »

Consultant at a mining and metals company with 51-200 employees
Scalability is not an easy question. For us, Palo Alto traps is running on a good environment, so if we have a plan to expand we just adjust the environment and from the Palo Alto side, it is not a problem at all. The only thing I have to do is update the license file and it should work. But in the case of a bigger expansion, you have to separate the servers. For us, it is not a problem at all if we decide to scale Palo Alto traps. View full review »
