Customer Story

City of Dallas Leverages RevealX for Unmatched Network Visibility

The City of Dallas oversees community infrastructure for its nearly 1.3 million residents.


Understanding the city’s attack surface in order to protect it more effectively.

A real differentiator between ExtraHop and the other players we looked at was the ability to unencrypt traffic. ExtraHop provides the east-west traffic visibility that allows you to see bad actors go between systems, and that’s the real value.

Dr. Brian Gardner, PhD CISO, City of Dallas

The Technology Environment

  • A mix of on-premises and cloud environments across an extensive network
  • IoT devices, smart parks, and public Wi-Fi
  • Sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII), about the city’s more than 1 million residents


Why the City of Dallas Chose RevealX

Powerful decryption capabilities offer unparalleled insight into encrypted traffic.

  • “I can bring people in who have not quite as much expertise and day one they can get something out of it,” says City of Dallas CISO, Brian Gardner. “And that is one of the biggest benefits I saw—it was easy; it was simple.”

The Outcome

Decryption Delivers Unmatched Insight

Secure decryption

  • Line-rate decryption offers unmatched visibility into encrypted traffic, enabling security teams to detect and investigate evidence of malicious activity like ransomware and supply chain compromises.

Comprehensive network visibility

  • The City of Dallas needs to protect highly diverse assets on its network, from PII like driver’s license numbers to IoT devices. RevealX helps the city understand what’s normal so they can quickly respond to what isn’t.
