NUREMBERG, GERMANY - October 2, 2015 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations and macmon secure, an innovative network security specialist, have announced a technology alliance. Together, macmon and ExtraHop will deliver the strongest threat detection and response solutions on the market to its joint customers and partners.
Following a technical evaluation programme, the technology alliance will allow channel partners and end-customers to seamlessly deploy integrated ExtraHop and macmon solutions to deliver enhanced features such as automatically quarantining endpoints through macmon NAC solutions based on anomaly behaviour detection by ExtraHop.
The alliance follows a successful implementation with a mutual German customer within the manufacturing industry sector, and working with solution integrators including P&W Netzwerke GmbH, a joint channel partner based near Dortmund.
"Our technology alliance is a recognition that real-time security can be made more effective when vendors work together to deliver solutions that are better than the sum of their respective parts," explains Gerhard Beeker, Regional Sales Manager, DACH for ExtraHop, "In our first joint customer engagement, we were able to quickly detect compromised endpoints using the power of the ExtraHop wire data analytics platform and then automatically secure the network against further intrusion with the efficiency of the macmon NAC platform without requiring extensive user intervention – for customers that plan to invest in both technologies, it's a great cost and performance advantage."
ExtraHop works with customers across the globe, from bet365, ACS, and Portsmouth NHS Hospitals Trust, to Lockheed Martin, Alaska Airlines, and Concur. With ExtraHop, these organizations can detect weak ciphers, continuously monitor for SSL encryption, detect threats like Heartbleed, as well as check the performance of virtualised applications, cloud workloads, and web applications. ExtraHop's innovative approach delivers this insight by transforming unstructured packets into structured wire data, and presents that information in real-time for user and third party systems including application management, big data analysis and security analytics.
Both ExtraHop and macmon are distributed in Europe by Wick Hill allowing the potential for future joint marketing and sales programmes. Adds Christian Bücker, CEO for Macmon, "Our channel partners across Europe appreciate these types of initiatives that make it easier for them to deliver high value solutions without the burden of worrying about interoperability or support issues. Innovative technologies such as wire data analytics and advanced Network Access Control are increasingly delivering the level of real-time security that organisations need. Our technology alliance serves as a great example for other vendors to work more closely together to help build better security systems."
