Rishi Bhargava, VP Product Strategy, Demisto, a Palo Alto Networks company said “Demisto v5.0 is packed with new features suggested to us by our community of customers, partners, and independent users. We’ve also introduced changes that facilitate improved load management and scaling of resources, ensuring that organisations are secure irrespective of the pace at which they grow.

“Back in 2015 we recognised that security teams wilt under dual pressures every day: an ever-increasing volume of security alerts, and insufficient resources to address these alerts. Over the past four years, our customers have seen us as the only platform that has combined security orchestration, incident management, and real-time collaboration to make their lives easier. Automating as much as possible hands time back to security teams to investigate, learn and improve, and sometimes just take a deep breath. Since joining forces with Palo Alto Networks, we have accelerated our go-to-market and made inroads into use cases outside of traditional security operations.” said Bhargava.
