RevealX Enables Frictionless Security and Agile Development for Wizards of the Coast

Wizards of the Coast bring fantasy to life as the makers of Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering.


In the early 2000s Wizards of the Coast brought their legendary IP to an online gaming platform built on AWS.

Developers aren't anti-security; what they are is anti-friction. With Reveal(x), we're removing that friction traditionally associated with security and becoming part of their development cycle. That's a win-win across the board.

Dan McDaniel Chief Architect & Information Security Officer, Wizards of the Coast

The Technology Environment

  • Online gaming platform built on AWS that must meet worldwide demand
  • Traffic across multiple Amazon virtual private clouds (VPCs)


Why Wizards of the Coast Chose RevealX

  • Cloud-native solution with agentless, packet level visibility

  • Empowers security analysts and developers to understand risks and break through bottlenecks

  • Enables detection, investigation, and response to threats before they can compromise systems or data

The Outcome

Security Without Stifling Creativity

Improved efficiency and reduced tool sprawl for development, security, and IT operations

Chief Architect & Information Security Officer, Dan McDaniel calls RevealX a game changer.

  • "What ExtraHop allows me to do is to provide security without validating the architecture of their games before they go live," McDaniel said. "It gives (developers) the freedom to create and go, but I still have visibility and transparency into my risk."

Granular context—even in environments where Kubernetes clusters spin up hundreds of thousands of instances at a time—empowered security analysts to support studio developers without looking over their shoulders
