ExtraHop Leads the Charge for Network Traffic Analytics at Black Hat USA

Share:

Following a Spate of Industry Recognition from Leading Analysts,
Enterprise-Scale Network Traffic Analytics Solution Poised to Challenge
the SOC Status Quo

ExtraHop®, a leading provider of analytics for security, is upending the
SOC status quo at the Black Hat USA 2018 Conference. The company will be
showcasing its Reveal(x)
network traffic analytics (NTA) solution at Booth 1004, demonstrating
how real-time analytics and machine learning eliminate the darkspace
within the enterprise. ExtraHop has received industry recognition from
Gartner, EMA, and Ovum as these and other leading industry organizations
recognize the need for NTA at enterprise scale.

The ExtraHop booth at Black Hat USA will feature a series of industry
thought leadership presentations from Phantom, Ixia, and others speaking
on the rapidly emerging role of NTA in the enterprise SOC, the
importance of TLS
1.3
decryption for security visibility, and the power of
orchestration automation. Special sessions will occur throughout the day
at Booth 1004 on August 8 and 9, 2018.

"Security teams are drowning in alerts and many are left without the
resources they need to stay ahead of attackers," said Bryce Hein, SVP of
Marketing at ExtraHop. "Threat hunting in the modern attack landscape is
not possible without enterprise-class network traffic analytics, making
NTA a must-have for the modern enterprise SOC."

ExtraHop Reveal(x) significantly reduces dwell time by highlighting
late-stage attack activities and shining light on the darkspace
in the enterprise—the hard-to-see areas of the network along the
east-west corridor. Through comprehensive analysis of network traffic,
Reveal(x) automatically identifies attack behavior, delivering
high-fidelity insights into threats to critical assets. By merging
insights into investigative workflows, Reveal(x) helps security
operations teams shrink detection and response times, disrupt threat
activity, and identify ways to reduce the attack surface.

Analyst Recognition

ExtraHop was listed as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner "Hype
Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2018
" report. ExtraHop was
named in the Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) category. According to the
Gartner report, "NTA solutions are valuable tools that assist network
security professionals in the detection of compromised endpoints and
targeted attacks that have not been seen in the past. These tools have
limited blocking ability, or none at all (because they are implemented
outside of the line of traffic), but they are effective in shortening
the incident response window and reducing the dwell time of malware."1

The recent analyst report from EMA titled: Radar
Report for Network-Based Security Analytics: Q3 2018
identified
ExtraHop Reveal(x) as a "Value Leader" and "Vendor to Watch," noting
that, "Reveal(x) exhibited strong functionality due to its impressive
feature differentiation, out-of-box reporting, and high-performance
sustained data capture and processing."2

Customers Choose Reveal(x)

Global 2000 customers are already using ExtraHop Network Traffic
Analytics to modernize their programs and protect their enterprises. A top
provider of life insurance in the United States
is using Reveal(x)
as the cornerstone of their next-generation SOC, while other ExtraHop
customers report improving their security visibility by as much as 75
percent and reducing time to detect threats by as much as 95 percent.3

Industry Accolades

last six months including the AI
Breakthrough Award for Best AI Solution for CyberSecurity
, 2018
Fortress Cyber Security
, Best
of Citrix Synergy 2018
