Older isn't always wiser, especially when it comes to your IT solutions, where innovation is a way of life.
NetScout is based on decades-old legacy architecture, which is closed with no flexibility and limited visibility. Like other legacy providers, they don't do full-stream reassembly or analyze payloads in flight the way ExtraHop does, so you have limited context and application visibility. NetScout has attempted to compensate for their lack of innovation by acquiring other companies, leading to a frankenstein-like solution composed of piecemeal technologies. The ExtraHop platform, on the other hand, has developed and evolved as a cohesive solution.
How do you troubleshoot a problem you can't see? Where do you start?
There's a new and better way of getting visibility into what's happening with your network, your applications, and your infrastructure. With ExtraHop you get real-time payload analysis for 50+ protocols that can generate over 3,600 different metrics. Because ExtraHop is a cohesive solution, you can stop wasting time managing your tools and start optimizing your environment.
We're big believers in ITOA. The ExtraHop platform gives you the freedom to integrate and stream your wire data to third-party systems and non-proprietary data stores for correlation with other data sets. For example, you could correlate your application data with security events, logs, or business intelligence data.
The simple setup of ExtraHop's real-time stream analytics platform means you're accessing your wire data faster—and seeing value sooner.
With long proof-of-concept and Time to Value (TtV) cycles, as well as many overlapping products, getting NetScout operationalized takes ages.
NetScout comprises a haphazard mix of products that weren't designed to work together, and since they don't offer public cloud or virtualization support, you're doing a ton of work for very limited visibility.
With NetScout, your data is locked, so you have limited access, you have to wait on their release cycles for new protocols and there is no community to engage with or lean on for support.
