Extrahop is leider in het Gartner Magic Quadrant voor monitoring en diagnose van netwerkprestaties

We hebben het netwerk altijd gezien als een krachtige bron van gegevens en zichtbaarheid die verder gaat dan alleen netwerkbewerkingen ", zegt Arif Kareem, CEO van ExtraHop." Met onze geavanceerde machine learning, toonaangevende ontcijfermogelijkheden en ongeëvenaarde analysesnelheden, zijn we het netwerk aan het werk zetten om de prestaties van kritieke applicaties te verbeteren en om beveiligingsdreigingen snel te detecteren en te onderzoeken. We geloven dat onze plaatsing in het Gartner Magic Quadrant van 2019 voor monitoring en diagnostiek van netwerkprestaties ons visionaire leiderschap in de ruimte erkent. "

ExtraHop

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and founded in 2007, ExtraHop focuses on packet analytics for performance, security and application insights. During the past year, ExtraHop has invested in its global channel program with key hires and a focus on expanding its international markets.

The vendor’s solution is called the ExtraHop performance platform, which is sold as a single solution that’s customizable with different appliance configurations, modules and bundles. The ExtraHop platform includes the ExtraHop Discover appliance. This provides real-time analysis on network data. The ExtraHop Explore appliance provides indexing and storage of transaction records, the ExtraHop Trace appliance provides continuous packet capture, and the ExtraHop Command appliance provides centralized management. Finally, ExtraHop also offers SaaS-based machine learning for the real-time detection of performance and security anomalies. During the past year, ExtraHop has continued to invest in embedded machine learning in its NPMD workflows and visualizations. Visualization improvements in live activity maps include detection markers, which highlight device and protocol activity correlated with network events.

ExtraHop’s other focus has been on improving visibility into encrypted traffic, with support for TLS 1.3 and VoIP performance monitoring. ExtraHop has also released a hardware appliance capable of 100G to support trends in data center networks. ExtraHop continues to invest in security-focused capabilities and workflows based on network-traffic-based data with its Reveal(x) offering. Looking forward, ExtraHop is investing in monitoring modern architectures, including public cloud and containers. As part of this effort, an integration with Microsoft Azure’s Virtual Network Terminal Access Point (TAP) offering was announced, and the vendor plans to release Kubernetes support during the next year.

ExtraHop’s NPMD revenue is estimated to be between $50 million and $100 million per year.

 

  • ExtraHop provides network-derived intelligence data that caters to groups outside network operations, including LOB owners.
  • ExtraHop has shown commitment in advancing the use of AIOps techniques in common NPMD workflows, which is a differentiator, compared with similar NPMD vendors.
  • End users rate ExtraHop favorably for ease of installation and upgrading, and report spending less on implementation services (as a percentage of total NPMD spending) than for other NPMD vendors.

Cautions

  • Data center traffic growth, along with cloud migration and virtualization, will place additional burdens on buyers of ExtraHop to ensure that relevant packet data is accessible for analysis.
  • ExtraHop’s focus on both security and performance buyers may hinder its ability to keep pace with NPMD market shifts.
  • ExtraHop’s inability to capture infrastructure metrics and its relatively weak flow-monitoring capabilities may force buyers to procure additional NPMD or ITIM solutions for holistic network monitoring.
