Axians Chooses Network Intelligence from ExtraHop for Circle of Visibility Offering

Security offering underscores the value of leveraging NDR, EDR, and SIEM for complete visibility into an enterprise environment to identify, analyse, and defend against threats

LONDON – 11 October 2022 ExtraHop, the leader in cloud-native network intelligence, announced today that security and solutions provider Axians is using ExtraHop for its core security offering, the Circle of Visibility. This cybersecurity offering marries three solutions—NDR, EDR, and SIEM—to help organisations detect, investigate, and ultimately stop advanced attacks before they can do significant damage.

Many organisations have a strong preventative posture, yet have fallen victim to a cyberattack.

Approximately 75% of security budgets go to preventing intrusion, and yet more than 80% of organisations have experienced a ransomware incident in the past five years. With its Circle of Visibility offering, Axians is bringing together best-in-class detection and response technologies to provide streamlined, contextual visibility from the network to the endpoint to help organisations detect and stop cyberattacks before they result in significant data loss, business downtime, and reputational harm.  

"Like every organisation today, we have to deal with large and evolving attack surfaces, constant threats from cybercriminals, and regulation requirements. Organisations need to assume that attackers are actively operating inside their hybrid environments, moving laterally, and evading traditional security controls," said David Maes, IT manager, Boels Rental. "We leverage ExtraHop and Axians' Circle of Visibility to improve our overall security posture and reliably detect, investigate, and respond to malicious behaviour.''

The ExtraHop Reveal(x) platform adds critical network intelligence to the Axians Circle of Visibility offering. By applying advanced AI, behavioural analytics, and strategic decryption to live network telemetry, ExtraHop Reveal(x) identifies the stealthy attack techniques and lateral movement associated with the most advanced threats. When attack activity is detected, ExtraHop Reveal(x) customers can quickly pivot to investigate down to the packet level and then respond with speed, before the attack can spread. 

"ExtraHop's network intelligence is the ground source of truth for an organisation. The network does not lie," said Roel van de Pol, solution architect at Axians. "It can tell us exactly how attackers are moving within an organisation, staging data, or communicating back to their home base. It also provides visibility into endpoints where an agent can't be installed. As enterprises shift to a detect and respond mindset, this triad of technology with ExtraHop Reveal(x) at its core will help reduce the chance that an attacker can reach its end goal."

"Network detection and response is rapidly emerging as a must-have capability in modern security operations. Axians' Circle of Visibility offering with ExtraHop's cyber defence platform provides comprehensive attack surface visibility for defenders," said Sandra Hilt, AVP, Channel Sales, EMEA, at ExtraHop. "We believe Axians has the reach, relationships, and drive to help accelerate ExtraHop's business growth in Europe and we're thrilled to be part of this offering."

Axians Circle of Visibility also complies with NIS2, a European Union-wide legislation on cybersecurity that aims to strengthen the security requirements for organisations across the region.
