Tech Docs: New AutoFocus Features Make Threat Research a Breeze


PANW-New-Logo-2

A new version of the Palo Alto Networks threat intelligence portal AutoFocus is out! And it’s packed with several nifty features that make threat research a breeze.

The AutoFocus New Features Guide has everything you need to get started but here are some release highlights: 

STIX for AutoFocus API: STIX (Structured Threat Indicator eXpression) is an XML-based standard that provides a consistent format for storing and sharing cyberthreat data. The AutoFocus API now lets you send API requests to AutoFocus and receive STIX-compliant responses. Sharing AutoFocus threat intelligence is easier than ever!

New Threat Analysis Features: Assess your level of coverage against malware by viewing which signatures were matched to a sample during WildFire analysis. Additionally, for behaviors observed in a sample during WildFire analysis, you can now view a list of activities exhibited by the samples that were used as evidence of the observed behavior.

AutoFocus Feedback Tool: A new feedback tool built into the AutoFocus navigation pane lets you get in touch with the AutoFocus team in just a couple of clicks. Send your rave reviews of AutoFocus or request features you’d like to see in future releases. 

Workflow Improvements: Be an AutoFocus power user in no time with various time-saving enhancements to the portal. Changes include the ability to:

  • Start searching for an artifact from any page on AutoFocus
  • View the API request for a search directly in the AutoFocus interface
  • Conduct multiple searches simultaneously in different browser windows

and many more.
