Intrusion Detection System
Had It With Your IDS Alert Cannon? Upgrade to Reveal(x)
Close the Gaps
Intrusion detection systems (IDS), popularized in the 1990s, continue to underwhelm security teams as an ineffective detection-in-depth technology against modern threats. However, IDS is still a major part of PCI DSS and other compliance programs. Retire your noisy IDS and apply that budget to Reveal(x), a next-generation IDS that finally delivers compliance with security. Your time-strapped team will thank you.
Reveal(x) is powered by machine learning (ML) anomaly detection, high-risk CVE exploit identification, contextual threat hunting, and streamlined incident response with forensics capabilities. Unlike IDS, a brittle signature technology, Reveal(x) adds post-compromise detection to expose successful intrusions originating from social engineering, credential abuse, and supply chain attacks too.
With cloud-native Reveal(x) 360, you can close security and compliance gaps in cloud initiatives and see into encrypted traffic, unachieved with that old IDS. And do it without friction for your DevOps innovation pipeline. DevOps, and adversaries, won't even know it's there.
Time Weakens IDS
Network evolution creates IDS blindspots:
- Abstract, jagged perimeter with BYOD and cloud.
- The network went dark with encrypted traffic.
- Attacker's favor social and credential attacks over exploits.
Reveal(x) moves at the speed of your business, providing intrusion life cycle detection and response for cloud, hybrid, and encrypted traffic.
The act of intrusion takes milliseconds while breaches dwell for 56 days on average. Post-compromise is the modern reality for an effective defense posture that prevents lasting damage.
Reveal(x) full-spectrum detection powered by a blend of machine learning and rule-based analytics exposes lateral movement from intruders already inside the walls.
Exceed PCI DSS Requirements
When security budgets are tight, shouldn't you get more from IDS than just compliance? Read the Coalfire auditor guide on meeting PCI DSS requirements with NG-IDS. Reveal(x) uses machine learning to improve security, automates functions like device inventory, and replaces IDS for Req 11.4.
Without ExtraHop, the investigation would have taken days or weeks ... Even the FBI was impressed when they found out how quickly we identified and contained the threat!

Complete Security Workflow
Unfortunately, IDS stops at alerts, leaving time-strapped analysts searching for root cause with other investigation tools. NG-IDS accelerates incident responses with an optimized workflow that integrates detection, incident response, and network forensic evidence collection into a single tool.
