ExtraHop Adds AWS Data to Provide Performance and Security Insights for Hybrid Enterprises

Latest Enhancements to the Award-Winning ExtraHop for AWS Bundle to Deliver Comprehensive Visibility into AWS and Hybrid Environments for Real-Time Performance and Security Monitoring
November 27, 2017

LAS VEGAS – November 27, 2017 – ExtraHop, a leader in real-time analytics and an Advanced tier Technology Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), today announced support for integration with AWS CloudWatch, CloudTrail, and VPC Flow Log data, providing enhanced visibility and contextual analysis for customers with AWS and hybrid environments. ExtraHop will be exhibiting at booth #1405 at AWS re:Invent 2017 conference taking place November 27-December 1, 2017 in Las Vegas.

Organizations have embraced cloud and hybrid infrastructure to deliver their critical applications and services due to the scale and agility advantages that cloud computing offers. As organizations expand their IT footprints, they are often challenged to adopt common monitoring strategies and tools that work across all of their environments.

ExtraHop's award-winning solution for AWS provides customers the ability to troubleshoot applications and services in real-time, tune performance, and detect potential security threats in their cloud and hybrid environments using wire data, advanced analytics, and machine learning capabilities from a single platform.

With the latest enhancements, cloud teams have instant access to valuable insights from the combination of AWS-native data and real-time service monitoring and anomaly detection capabilities from ExtraHop. Customer benefits of this integration include:

  • Optimize performance and utilization of AWS and hybrid resources. Teams responsible for deploying applications and services are often challenged to understand how the behavior of systems impacts utilization and performance of the underlying resources. With AWS data in ExtraHop, teams can easily correlate service performance with AWS metrics such as CPU, disk utilization, and network.

  • Correlate changes made in the environment with service disruption. Unintended changes to settings and configurations in an IT environment is a common cause of service disruption. When AWS data is combined with ExtraHop, teams can easily correlate application and service performance with user identity and actions, and gather additional details such as login attempts.

  • Accelerate root cause analysis. Some performance and security issues require a deeper level of analysis and investigation. ExtraHop augments AWS data on top talkers and conversations by providing the who (users), what (applications and protocols), when (in seconds instead of minutes), and how (commands and files) behind every transaction. By seeing everything in context, organizations can quickly pinpoint the source of issues and avoid lost time in the war room.

"IT teams across various industries require visibility into both on-premises and cloud environments in order to troubleshoot applications and services, tune performance and detect potential threats," said Jesse Rothstein, CTO and co-founder, ExtraHop. "With ExtraHop for AWS Bundle, wire data and AWS data come together to identify the source of failures and latency with visibility into every transaction in digital applications and services delivered from cloud and hybrid environments. Teams are now armed with real-time, empirical, granular event data to help bring urgent attention and focused action to the source of performance problems and outages."

"Accolade runs its services exclusively on AWS platform, and as a rapidly growing business we need the ability to scale on demand, and deliver a seamless user experience for our clients. We also need to keep our data safe," said Mike Sheward, Principal Security Architect at Accolade. "Together, ExtraHop wire data and AWS data allow us to leverage the flexibility of the cloud, without losing the ability to inspect the contents of a single packet."
