SEATTLE – OCTOBER 15, 2020 – ExtraHop, the leader in cloud-native network detection and response, (Headquarters: Washington, USA) has started full-scale operations in Japan. With a base of customers and a growing local team led by country manager, Takaya Fukuyama, ExtraHop is making a long-term, strategic investment in the dynamic Japanese enterprise technology market.
Founded in 2007, ExtraHop is on a mission to arm security teams to confront active threats and stop breaches. The company continues to dominate the global 2,000 and major verticals including financial services, retail, and healthcare, protecting more than fifteen million IT assets across global enterprise customers. In less than three years ExtraHop had the third highest global market share by revenue in 2019 in the Network Detection and Response (NDR) segment, according to Gartner. Even more notable is the revenue change from 2018 to 2019 of 382% listed for ExtraHop, the highest in the Network Detection and Response segment. ExtraHop's growth numbers are a result of arming security leaders and practitioners with the intelligence they need to make informed decisions quickly to stop a threat before an adversary can breach the network.
Network detection and response monitors all network and cloud traffic (east-west and north-south) traversing the network. Observed network behavior can't be turned off, altered, or evaded by savvy hackers, unlike log and agent-based tools. When used in conjunction with EDR and SIEM solutions, NDR fills in the gaps that other tools miss to detect, investigate, and respond to threats across the entire attack surface - in the datacenter, remote locations and in the cloud.
At the core of ExtraHop Reveal(x) is a unique approach that applies cloud-based machine learning to all network traffic to provide complete visibility, real-time threat detection, and intelligent response that helps security practitioners investigate threats, ensure the delivery of critical applications, and protect their investment in the cloud. With the recently introduced Reveal(x) 360, ExtraHop now offers the power of network detection and response in a fully hosted SaaS solution for ease of use and rapid time to value.
Raja Mukerji, Co-Founder and Chief Customer Officer of ExtraHop, made the following comment: "As the third largest economy, and one of the most technology-savvy countries in the world, we recognize how vital Japan is to ExtraHop's long term success. As network environments such as IoT devices and remote access diversify, ExtraHop is the only solution that can covertly decrypt and analyze all cloud and network traffic in real time to eliminate blind spots and detect threats. We're delivering a sophisticated approach to confront active threats, enabling Japanese organizations to stop breaches through every vector without slowing down their businesses."
