Enables users to make an informed decision to mitigate performance or security incidents

What is our primary use case?

We have implemented the ExtraHop Reveal(x) solution at multiple clients. They range from government, retail to financial. We collect north-south and east-west traffic via a visibility layer (packet brokers, taps, spans) and then feed that traffic to the ExtraHop Reveal (x) solution. The volume ranges from 1 GB solutions up to 40 GB solutions with 100 GB in the pipeline. Initially, we approached them for application performance analysis, but we now use it to assist the security teams as well. The behavioral analytics and ability to go back in history is proving extremely valuable.

Pros and Cons

  • "We had useful information within the hour of deployment. The ability to trace back for historical analysis, as well as the behavioral analysis done with the security information, puts the user in a position to make an informed decision to mitigate the performance or security incidents. Regarding the security incidents, Reveal (x) is able to create incident cards that guide your teams through the incidents and gives you the option to delve into the transaction detail to potentially view payloads as well."
  • "Netflow - Processing Netflow can be cumbersome as it requires triggers to truly gain value and insight. This in turn can add a bit of load to the hardware. The focus of ExtraHop Reveal (x) is live packet data."

What other advice do I have?

Generally, I enjoy working with this solution and the teams from ExtraHop. Just be sure that you always attache a service or a dedicated resource to any such solution to get the most value out of it.

An easy initial setup with extensive documentation and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for three main aspects: security, visibility, and application performance.

Pros and Cons

  • "Setting up the solution is relatively easy."
  • "The solution is expensive and gets more expensive if a company needs to scale it."

What other advice do I have?

We have a relationship with the vendor, and we're also a customer. For those considering implementing the solution, I would advise organizations to engage early with their sales managers and sales engineers, in order to understand these cases. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
