April 30, 2013

Joint Speaking Session at Interop with Leading Online Brokerage Firm Will Highlight ExtraHop in Action and the Power of Real-Time IT Operational Intelligence


SEATTLE, WA – April 30, 2013 – ExtraHop Networks, the leading provider of real-time IT operational intelligence, has been named a finalist in two Best of Interop categories. ExtraHop's flagship EH8000 appliance, the industry's first 20Gbps real-time analysis platform, has been named a finalist in the Management and Monitoring category while ExtraHop for Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been named a finalist in the Cloud Computing and Virtualization category. ExtraHop is the only finalist in two award categories. ExtraHop CEO Jesse Rothstein will also deliver a joint presentation at Interop with a leading online brokerage firm to demonstrate how the ExtraHop platform is transforming their IT operations through cross-tier visibility of all applications and infrastructure.

The EH8000 is the first all-in-one performance management solution capable of real-time, L2–L7 transaction analysis at a sustained 20Gbps of throughput for both encrypted and unencrypted traffic. ExtraHop's software architecture makes the EH8000 the undisputed price-performance leader in the IT operations management industry, enabling companies to extract application, infrastructure, and transaction details from massive volumes of wire data with a single appliance.

According to CDW's 2013 State of the Cloud Report, performance concerns and lack of visibility rank as a top barrier to cloud adoption, second only to security. ExtraHop for AWS takes the guesswork out of monitoring cross-tier public cloud deployments. Uniquely suited to dynamic cloud environments, ExtraHop for AWS auto-discovers and auto-classifies all applications and infrastructure that are communicating over the network without requiring agents, upfront configuration, or manual device tagging. By continuously analyzing all AWS traffic, ExtraHop equips IT teams with the real-time operational intelligence needed to answer the question, "What is happening in my environment right now?"

"The Best of Interop Awards acknowledge innovative products and services in business technology," wrote Andrew Conry-Murray, editor of Network Computing. "At Interop, attendees can see these products on the show floor and have the opportunity to interact first hand with the latest advancements. The selected finalists for 2013 have put forth the most compelling offerings, and we congratulate each of the Best of Interop finalists."

Jesse Rothstein, CEO of ExtraHop, and Sean Jacobsen, Director of IT Production Support for a leading online brokerage firm, will be discussing ExtraHop's operational-intelligence solution during a joint presentation at Interop. The pair will deliver a presentation about how the online brokerage firm has used ExtraHop's cross-tier visibility to improve application response times over 70 percent while transforming IT operations through a combination of people, process, and technology. Jacobsen is a 20-year IT operations veteran, and together with ExtraHop's Rothstein he will share how his team uses the ExtraHop platform to improve collaboration with application development, database, and network teams to proactively address performance and capacity issues.

"For online brokerages, application performance is directly tied to revenue and customer attrition," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO of ExtraHop Networks. "ExtraHop's operational intelligence helps IT organizations not only solve problems more quickly, but transform from a reactive to proactive mode of operations and continually get better at what they do. I'm excited to be able to share the success of one of our most forward-thinking customers at Interop."
