What's New in 7.2

ExtraHop 7.2 expands your power and flexibility with the existing features you know and love.

Our 7.2 release notes provide a comprehensive list of new features, enhancements, and fixes for each appliance with links to the most relevant documentation, but here are some quick links to information about our most exciting new features.

Prioritize Critical Assets

By default, the ExtraHop system is designed to provide the highest level of analysis possible for your devices and endpoints based on your available licensed capacity. You can then target specific device groups, activity groups, or individual devices for higher analysis as needed, based on their importance to your environment.

Dynamic Dashboard Sources

Dashboards have always been a powerful way to visualize your data and quickly identify potential network problems. With 7.2, we've added the ability to dynamically alter your source on the fly.

By creating a dashboard with a dynamic source, you can switch your view of all of the metrics to a different device, application, or network source.

When editing your chart in the Metric Explorer, add a variable source, such as $device, $application, or $wirenetwork.

Add Variable Source

Then, change the source on the fly from your dashboard.

Visualize Your Data - Your Way

With global themes, you can now set a theme that will persist for your user account across the ExtraHop Web UI, no matter which browser or machine you log in from. But don't worry, you can still vary themes for specific dashboards by setting a URL parameter. Then, send or bookmark the modified dashboard URL as needed.

Click on your user icon to access the drop-down menu, and select a theme.

BPF for Trace

Berkeley Packet Filters (BPF) are a raw interface to data link layers and are a powerful tool for forensics. The BPF syntax enables you to write filters that quickly drill down on specific packets to see the essential information.

In 7.2, we've expanded BPF syntax to our packet search for the Trace appliance.

PFS Installer for Windows

We've added a Windows GUI installer which enables short-term, completely private key exchanges between clients and servers.

Add Markdown Flair to Your Alert Notification Emails

Previously, you could add a customized description to your alert notification emails. In 7.2, we've added support for Markdown syntax so that you can apply HTML styling to your emails, such as lists, bold, and italics.
