SEATTLE, WA - June 1, 2016 – ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, today announced that the ExtraHop Discover Appliance with Ransomware Bundle won both the "Best of Show" and "Application, Data, and Network Security" categories in the Best of Citrix Synergy 2016 Awards, which took place at the Citrix Synergy 2016 event on May 24-26 in Las Vegas.

"We picked [the ExtraHop platform] as 'Best of Show' because, of the four winning products today, theirs was the one that could provide value immediately," said desktop virtualization expert and blogger Brian Madden. "It's not something you download, and then install or buy, and then ship and then build it, and then your environment is awesome…eventually. You can literally put the product in, push go, and get the benefits instantaneously. There were a lot of great products, but this was what earned ExtraHop 'Best of Show.'"


"Ransomware is dangerous because it's very hard to detect until it's too late," said ExtraHop CEO Jesse Rothstein. "With our ransomware bundle, ExtraHop gives businesses the real-time analytics to not only proactively monitor for attacks, but also detect, track, and mitigate ransomware from the minute it infiltrates the environment. This recognition from the Best of Citrix Synergy judges validates our turnkey, differentiated approach, and ability to provide customers with immediate value."

ExtraHop offers unmatched analysis of all data in-flight – client, network, application, and infrastructure activity. With ransomware attacks growing exponentially each year, this level of IT monitoring is imperative for businesses to proactively detect and track malicious behavior in real time, or identify and protect vulnerable resources before they can be compromised.
