May 22, 2017

SEATTLE – May 22, 2017 – ExtraHop, the leader in real-time IT analytics, today announced that its Addy machine learning solution was awarded Best of Interop ITX 2017 in the Data and Analytics category. To experience Addy, check out the interactive online demo.

"Machine learning is the next stage of IT operations, augmenting human intelligence and experience with the ability to scale to the reality of enterprise IT," said Bryce Hein, SVP of Marketing at ExtraHop. "This recognition from Interop ITX acknowledges the accelerating need for machine learning technologies, and validates ExtraHop's forward-thinking approach and market-leading solution."

ExtraHop Addy is the industry's first SaaS offering that observes and analyzes all digital interactions and applies machine learning to detect anomalies in real time. Addy builds on the ExtraHop platform's real-time analytics, applying advanced algorithms and heuristics – as well as crowd-sourced feedback – to build continuous baselines for every device, network, and application. The service then proactively detects and surfaces potential performance and security issues in the environment, enabling IT teams to easily and rapidly investigate problems from high-level performance metrics to individual transactions to packets in a matter of clicks rather than hours.

Organizations across all verticals are improving the performance and security of business-critical systems and delivering better digital experiences. Just last week, Addy alerted numerous ExtraHop customers to the presence of ransomware-like behavior patterns, helping them to thwart the spread of WannaCry before it could harm their businesses.

"A big congratulations to ExtraHop and all of this year's Best of Interop ITX winners. The role each of these companies play in furthering the IT industry is unparalleled, and we're thrilled to honor each of their accomplishments," said Meghan Reilly, General Manager, Interop ITX. "As the industry grows, it is now more important than ever to honor those pushing innovation to the forefront and dedicating their time and skills to today's most important concepts. Each of these companies has truly encompassed all that these awards represent and we want to thank them for their efforts in bettering the industry as a whole."

The Best of Interop ITX Awards were judged by an expert panel of influential IT practitioners, analysts and professionals. Each category was assigned dedicated judges who selected the winner after holding a series of briefings to evaluate demos and business cases.
