Public cloud relies on the "shared responsibility" model, which means that while cloud providers like Azure and AWS will protect the security of the cloud itself, users are responsible for securing their infrastructure within the cloud. While cloud providers offer security monitoring tools, these offer limited use cases and analytics aimed mainly at known threat categories that generally result in a sea of data points that require human interpretation.
ExtraHop Reveal(x) delivers complete visibility across enterprise cloud deployments in AWS or Azure with real-time analytics and machine learning that automatically discovers all cloud instances, tracks suspicious traffic patterns across the application payload, and surfaces detections so cloud security teams can respond immediately. Reveal(x) for Azure integrates with the Microsoft Virtual Network TAP to provide the first complete network traffic analysis (NTA) solution in the Azure cloud.
With ExtraHop, we have complete L2-L7 visibility across the entire application stack, including the cloud. We can rapidly identify and troubleshoot problems within minutes.

Cloud IaaS offers tremendous benefits for the enterprise, including scalability, flexibility, and the promise of high-performance infrastructure, but security isn't one of them. According to a recent Ixia survey, 78 percent report security or compliance as their top public cloud priority. At the same time, a 2018 study by Cybersecurity Insider found that only 16 percent of respondents believe traditional security tools are sufficient for cloud.
Line-rate decryption of TLS 1.3-encrypted traffic ensures that even encrypted threats are surfaced. Advanced behavioral analytics correlated against critical assets deliver high-fidelity alerts to cut through the noise and keep cloud security professionals focused on the threats and vulnerabilities most likely to impact the business.
With this analytics-first approach, SecOps teams can click directly into transaction details and even full packets from anywhere in the Reveal(x) interface. Rapid insight helps you act quickly and with confidence where human smarts are needed, while deep integrations allow you to automate response workflows such as deactivating rogue or compromised workloads.
