There's a New Leader in the Gartner NPMD MQ

ExtraHop Rises Above the Line

Bryce Hein

February 13, 2019

After two consecutive years of being recognized as a Visionary in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics, ExtraHop has been named a Leader in the 2019 Magic Quadrant.

ExtraHop has always seen the network as a vital source of insight that extends from applications to users and infrastructure, but only if organizations are able to connect the dots in real time and at enterprise scale. While I believe our MQ placement validates that disruptive vision, our leadership in the NPMD market is only one example of how we help our customers rise above the noise of increasing complexity, organizational silos, and sophisticated threats.

Whether it means rapidly identifying performance issues, detecting and resolving security threats, or protecting their investment in the cloud, ExtraHop's unique approach enables our customers to protect and accelerate their business. Our 2018 entrance into enterprise cybersecurity—and our recent inclusion as a Representative Vendor in Gartner's first Market Guide for Network Traffic Analysis—marks our commitment to helping organizations deliver security and performance from the inside out.

This may sound like another instance of the tech industry's well-documented habit of buzzwords over substance (I've written before about the need for authenticity in a world of hype), so let me briefly give the floor to our customers themselves. In their own words:

"ExtraHop gives you insights that are simply not available from any other vendor." - Senior Network and Security Architect, Services Industry, Gartner Peer Insights

"[With ExtraHop] we're able to act first and ask questions later.... I think ExtraHop is the gold standard." - Esther Go, President & CEO, MediLink Network

"ExtraHop is an absolute difference maker.... ExtraHop relies on advanced machine learning techniques to learn the dynamic needs of our organization and what we require in terms of security and threat detection." - Network Administrator, Healthcare Industry, Gartner Peer Insights

"ExtraHop provides wire data analytics at a scale and with an effectiveness that none of the competitors can touch.... I would never want to work in operations analytics without it." - Engineer, Finance Industry, Gartner Peer Insights

As ExtraHop continues our high rate of innovation while delivering on our promises, I invite you to challenge your own expectations. Once you rise above industry stagnation and the need to choose between security, performance, and customer experience, what can your business achieve?
