LAS VEGAS - November 28, 2016 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations today announced integration with GigaSECURE, the Gigamon security delivery platform. The new integration delivers a high-fidelity data stream from both on-premises and cloud environments for real-time stream analysis within ExtraHop. The result is a unified view of the entire enterprise architecture, giving IT teams the critical visibility they need for troubleshooting, capacity planning, and security monitoring. For a demonstration of the ExtraHop Streaming Analytics Platform or the new ExtraHop GigaSECURE Solution, visit the ExtraHop Booth #2523 on Nov. 29 - Dec. 2 at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas.
As IT networks grow more complex and network speeds accelerate, the ability to secure the network and keep customer and business data safe is as important as delivering the consistent availability and performance that ensures positive customer experiences. Meanwhile, IT operations teams must manage a burgeoning portfolio of applications that now run in public and hybrid cloud instances in addition to dedicated infrastructure.
"The rapidly growing significance of public clouds, bring your own device (BYOD), big data and changing work patterns is increasingly conflicting with regulatory requirements for data access control," wrote Brian Lowans, principal analyst at Gartner, in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2016 report published in July. "These issues are driving the need for products that can protect data wherever it resides -- in storage, or in use by applications or endpoint devices, or through collaboration and processing either inside or outside of the traditional organizational perimeter."
By integrating with Gigamon GigaSECURE, ExtraHop transforms network data into actionable insight with real-time streaming analytics. This approach gives IT operations, network, and security teams comprehensive visibility into the performance and security of all applications and systems across on-premises and cloud environments including AWS. By monitoring this East-West traffic, these teams can spot anomalies and malicious actors quickly and act to protect critical assets and infrastructure. ExtraHop delivers the contextual history for the digital interactions that are integral to customers' daily lives and the ultimate measurement for modern business. By surfacing these previously hidden layers of business, security, application and operations data in a single, simple user-interface, ExtraHop enables enterprises to take control of their entire IT environment with zero impact to performance - ultimately saving time, improving efficiencies, and delivering practical insights.
"In today's digital landscape, data security is deeply rooted in delivering a superior customer experience, but where data resides is irrelevant to the user themselves. Now more than ever, this is an opportunity for IT to rethink their approach to data—one that will empower IT organizations with real-time visibility to manage the performance, availability, and security of applications that ultimately impact customer experiences with their brand," said John Leon, Vice President of Business Development at ExtraHop. "Together with Gigamon, we're taking another step toward helping enterprise businesses keep their data, and customer data, safe - wherever it resides."
"Through this integration with ExtraHop, our joint customers now have the most comprehensive visibility into East-West traffic available on the market," Ananda Rajagopal, Vice President of Product Line Management at Gigamon. "Together, we can surface anything that's happening within the data center or the cloud, allowing users to react quickly to performance degradations and potential breaches, and ensure a better, safer experience for customers."
