Customer Story

Viasat Confidently Manages Risk with RevealX

Viasat provides high speed satellite broadband services and secure networking systems to military and commercial markets.


As an ISP, Viasat needs to protect their customers against malicious behavior.

The network is the ground truth. It's what attackers can't avoid. You give yourself the ability to see everything on the network. You deploy ExtraHop, now you have the ability to see everything. Without that data, you're operating partially or completely blind. There is no other technology outside of NDR that can give you that, and in my professional opinion, ExtraHop is the best NDR.

Lee Chieffalo Technical Director, Viasat

The Technology Environment

  • A constellation of satellites providing internet access to a diverse customer network
  • Higher cost per bit than terrestrial ISPs means malicious traffic is costlier to the business


Why Viasat Chose RevealX

  • Simple integration with preexisting network taps required under Community Assistance to Law Enforcement Act (CALEA)
