LONDON – JULY 6, 2021 – ExtraHop, the leader in cloud-native network detection and response, today announced that NFU Mutual, a leading insurance provider in the United Kingdom, has selected ExtraHop Reveal(x) in help them defend against advanced threats with real-time detection and investigation across their hybrid infrastructure, from their DC and cloud workloads to remote offices.
Founded over a century ago, NFU Mutual is a member-owned insurance provider serving more than 900,000 members in the UK. The company offers a wide range of products, including general insurance, life, pensions, and investments through a network of more than 300 branch offices, direct sales, and service centres. NFU Mutual prides itself on putting its members first, and increasingly, that means doing everything possible to protect their data.
"NFU Mutual was founded by a small group of farmers looking to help more of their own, and that philosophy is still at the heart of our business—doing right by the people in the communities we serve. Cybersecurity is a big part of that these days. They trust us with their information, and we must do everything we can to protect it," said Richard Holland, Head of Technical Operations at NFU Mutual. "We had used ExtraHop for years to monitor the performance of our applications and systems, we are receiving tremendous value from the ExtraHop platform. It helped us when we've onboarded our managed DC partners and when we've seen how that same visibility could be applied to detect and investigate advanced threats quickly across our distributed operations. It was an easy choice as we can now reap the benefits by using one tool for our security team and our operations team."
The ExtraHop Reveal(x) platform uses the power of cloud intelligence to help security teams eliminate blind spots and detect threats other tools miss. Built on cloud-scale AI, Reveal(x) decrypts and analyzes all network and cloud traffic in real time to expose advanced threats like supply chain attacks, zero days, and APTs. Indexed records and a streamlined investigation workflow enable users to investigate and quickly remediate threat activity.
"As the world has learned over the last year, securing highly distributed operations in the ever evolving cyber environment of advanced threats—with the VPN requirements and expanded use of cloud—is a real challenge," said Ronnen Brunner, VP of EMEA Sales at ExtraHop. "NFU, with it's community-oriented approach to providing insurance services, knows all about the challenges of securing lots of small, distributed offices. We're proud to partner with NFU to help them protect their business and their customers as they continue their mission to serve the people and communities of the UK."
