With a theme of ‘Scaling with the Enterprise’, version 7 delivers improvements in Intelligence, Integration, Analytics, Adoption, Scaling and Architecture.

Auto-intelligent generation of integration logic for external systems enables Cortex® to Integrate with tens of thousands of systems out of the box. This supports the latest interface definition published in formats including PowerShell cmdlets, OpenAPI/swagger, and WSDL, providing instant integration even for custom systems.

Cortex® LivePortal User Interface has been transformed, supporting dynamic generation of responsive content and production of client branded and personalised catalogues, workflows, and portals.

User customisable dashboards generated from the integrated Microsoft® SQL services over the Cortex® Data Warehouse produce unique insights to enable consistent autonomous operations.

Role-based continuous delivery capabilities enable agile automation of operations in a real dynamic business environment. Design time acceleration to increase productivity 2x is achieved through new controls and built-in intelligent automation.

World-class credential management in a machine to machine relationship, ensuring segregation of duties and access compliance is now fully integrated with ready-to-use integrations to CyberArk®, including interfaces for Credential Management and Application Identity Manager.

Advanced server performance optimisation provides the fastest enterprise-scale performance to date, with individual Cortex systems now processing over 8 million transactions per day. More resilient event and trap handling provides 100% consistency at availability exceeding 99.999%.

Self-managed installation and configuration enables more rapid installation with reduced admin requirements. Enhanced change management provides the fastest ever role based controlled publishing.
