ExtraHop Listed as a Sample Vendor in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2018

SEATTLE, July 31, 2018 – ExtraHop, a leading provider of analytics for security and performance management, today announced that it has been listed as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2018" report. ExtraHop was named in the Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) category.1

According to the report, "NTA solutions are valuable tools that assist network security professionals in the detection of compromised endpoints and targeted attacks that have not been seen in the past. These tools have limited blocking ability, or none at all (because they are implemented outside of the line of traffic), but they are effective in shortening the incident response window and reducing the dwell time of malware."

ExtraHop® Reveal(x)™ provides network traffic analysis at enterprise scale and speed, significantly reducing dwell time by highlighting late stage attack activities and shining light on the "darkspace" in the enterprise – the hard-to-reach areas of the network along the East-West corridor. Through comprehensive analysis of network traffic, Reveal(x) delivers real-time visibility and high-fidelity insight into threats to your critical assets throughout the hybrid enterprise.

"With the launch of Reveal(x), ExtraHop has taken its deep roots analyzing network traffic in real time for performance management and optimized our analytics and machine learning to investigate threats lurking within your enterprise," said Bryce Hein, SVP of Marketing at ExtraHop. "We believe being named by Gartner as a Sample Vendor reinforces the value of Reveal(x) to our customers, and validates the importance of Network Traffic Analysis as a must-have tool for the modern SOC."
