ExtraHop Leads the Charge for Network Traffic Analytics at Black Hat USA

Following a Spate of Industry Recognition from Leading Analysts, Enterprise-Scale Network Traffic Analytics Solution Poised to Challenge the SOC Status Quo
August 8, 2018

LAS VEGAS, August 8, 2018 – ExtraHop®, a leading provider of analytics for security, is upending the SOC status quo at the Black Hat USA 2018 Conference. The company will be showcasing its Reveal(x)™ network traffic analytics (NTA) solution at Booth 1004, demonstrating how real-time analytics and machine learning eliminate the darkspace within the enterprise. ExtraHop has received industry recognition from Gartner, EMA, and Ovum as these and other leading industry organizations recognize the need for NTA at enterprise scale.

The ExtraHop booth at Black Hat USA will feature a series of industry thought leadership presentations from Phantom, Ixia, and others speaking on the rapidly emerging role of NTA in the enterprise SOC, the importance of TLS 1.3 decryption for security visibility, and the power of orchestration automation. Special sessions will occur throughout the day at Booth 1004 on August 8 and 9, 2018.

"Security teams are drowning in alerts and many are left without the resources they need to stay ahead of attackers," said Bryce Hein, SVP of Marketing at ExtraHop. "Threat hunting in the modern attack landscape is not possible without enterprise-class network traffic analytics, making NTA a must-have for the modern enterprise SOC."

ExtraHop Reveal(x) significantly reduces dwell time by highlighting late-stage attack activities and shining light on the darkspace in the enterprise—the hard-to-see areas of the network along the east-west corridor. Through comprehensive analysis of network traffic, Reveal(x) automatically identifies attack behavior, delivering high-fidelity insights into threats to critical assets. By merging insights into investigative workflows, Reveal(x) helps security operations teams shrink detection and response times, disrupt threat activity, and identify ways to reduce the attack surface.

Analyst Recognition

ExtraHop was listed as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 2018" report. ExtraHop was named in the Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) category. According to the Gartner report, "NTA solutions are valuable tools that assist network security professionals in the detection of compromised endpoints and targeted attacks that have not been seen in the past. These tools have limited blocking ability, or none at all (because they are implemented outside of the line of traffic), but they are effective in shortening the incident response window and reducing the dwell time of malware."1

The recent analyst report from EMA titled: Radar Report for Network-Based Security Analytics: Q3 2018 identified ExtraHop Reveal(x) as a "Value Leader" and "Vendor to Watch," noting that, "Reveal(x) exhibited strong functionality due to its impressive feature differentiation, out-of-box reporting, and high-performance sustained data capture and processing."2

Leading European analyst group Ovum touted Reveal(x) in a recent report, "It analyzes all network interactions, applying machine learning to detect abnormal behavior, and then automates basic functions to streamline threat investigations. The launch of Reveal(x) takes ExtraHop into the network detection and response (NDR) market."3

Customers Choose Reveal(x)

Global 2000 customers are already using ExtraHop Network Traffic Analytics to modernize their programs and protect their enterprises. A top provider of life insurance in the United States is using Reveal(x) as the cornerstone of their next-generation SOC, while other ExtraHop customers report improving their security visibility by as much as 75 percent and reducing time to detect threats by as much as 95 percent.4
