April 25, 2013

ExtraHop's IT Operational Intelligence Platform Provides Correlated Visibility Across Tiers, Driving a 250 Percent Year-over-Year Increase in New Customer Sales in 2012


SEATTLE, WA — April 25, 2013 ExtraHop Networks, the leading provider of real-time IT operational intelligence solutions, today announced that Gartner has included it as a Cool Vendor in the Cool Vendors in Application Performance Monitoring, 2013[1] report, authored by Gartner Research Vice President Will Cappelli and Gartner Research Director Jonah Kowall. According to Gartner, the report analyzes "emerging APM offerings bought by multiple buyers, including IT operations, application support, development and line-of-business application owners. These offerings encompass an understanding of network performance, the Internet's health and critical mobile application performance."

ExtraHop's IT operational intelligence is a superset of application performance management (APM), network performance management (NPM), infrastructure performance management (IPM), business transaction management (BTM), and real-user management (RUM). It provides correlated visibility across tiers without the use of agents or other invasive instrumentation, all from a single appliance.

With a real-time view of the performance of all applications and infrastructure, IT Operations teams have the ability to answer the question, "What is happening in my environment right now?" Previously, when a technology problem occurred, IT organizations didn't know where to start to look for its source. ExtraHop solves this problem by providing a holistic view of performance across all tiers, including the network, web, database, VDI, and storage tiers. Users can start with a high-level view of performance and then quickly drill down to granular device- and transaction-level details to pinpoint the root cause of a problem.

"IT teams can't manage what they can't measure. We are committed to providing IT organizations with visibility for all applications, all the time, in real time—even in highly dynamic environments," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO at ExtraHop Networks. "Our solution mines real-time wire data to auto-discover and auto-classify applications and servers. With this up-to-date view of application performance, IT Operations teams can move from a reactive state to one that is very proactive, helping to minimize downtime and free up resources to focus on innovation."
