ExtraHop Named Best of Interop 2015 Finalist

The EH9100 Appliance Recognized for Industry-Leading Scale and Performance, Delivering 40 Gbps of Real-Time Wire Data Analysis for IT and Business Insight


SEATTLE, WA – April 9, 2015 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today announced that its flagship appliance, the EH9100, has been named a finalist for the Best of Interop 2015 awards in the Performance, Management, and Monitoring category. The ExtraHop wire data analytics platform has been honored numerous times by the Best of Interop judges. In 2013, the ExtraHop for AWS cloud monitoring solution was named Best of Interop in the Cloud and Virtualization category. In 2010, ExtraHop took home top honors in both the Performance Management and Best Start-up categories.

The EH9100 delivers industry-first throughput of 40 Gbps that enables analysis rates up to 1.3 million HTTP transactions per second. The appliance is also capable of SSL traffic analysis at a sustained bulk decryption rate of 40 Gbps with the capability to process 64,000 handshakes per second with 2048-bit RSA keys. At this scale, the EH9100 boasts the industry's most compelling price-to-performance ratio on the market, delivering more than four times the performance and functionality at one-fifth the cost of comparable offerings.

With the EH9100, enterprise IT teams are empowered with unprecedented insight into the performance of today's complex and dynamic environments, be it private, hybrid, or cloud. Examples of benefits delivered by 40 Gbps analysis include the following:

  • Real-time business analytics, including the ability to correlate merchant revenue with payment transaction performance, track purchasing patterns by merchant, geography, user, etc., and monitor emergency room wait times using the HL7 protocol.
  • Dramatically increased efficiency for Agile Development QA and operations teams, including an average 33 percent issue reduction in production; improved release cycles, greater agility and increased productivity; and the ability to accelerate future development timelines.
  • Ability to ensure PII (personally identifiable information) compliance with 24/7 real-time monitoring of all PII systems and data, including data exfiltration and unauthorized access, as well as the ability to prove PCI compliance by showing that all transactions in flight were encrypted using correct certifications.
"With the adoption of 40GbE, and the massive increase in data center traffic that has resulted, legacy monitoring solutions are increasingly unable to scale to the demands of today's complex and dynamic IT environments," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "The EH9100 is the only appliance capable of L2-L7 analysis at these speeds. Being selected as a finalist for Best of Interop validates the need for a next-generation approach for monitoring and management that can keep up with the demands of 40GbE and beyond."
