ExtraHop, a provider of enterprise cyber analytics from the inside out, has been identified as a representative vendor in the inaugural Gartner "Market Guide for Network Traffic Analysis" report.

Local South African distributor Corr-Serve welcomed the announcement, which came just a month after ExtraHop was recognised as a new leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics.

Wade Gomes, sales director at Corr-Serve, commented: "In our view, network traffic analytics (NTA) are critical for complete cyber threat detection. By considering ExtraHop's NTA and powerful artificial intelligence, Gartner has recognised that suspicious network traffic can often be missed by regular tools."

Corr-Serve is a level one, 100% black female-owned South African distributor.

"Enterprises should strongly consider NTA to complement signature-based and sandboxing detection methods," wrote Gartner analysts Lawrence Orans, Jeremy D'Hoinne and Sanjit Ganguli. "Many Gartner clients have reported that NTA tools have detected suspicious network traffic that other perimeter security tools had missed."

Arif Kareem, the CEO of ExtraHop, said: "Enterprise security programmes have struggled to keep up with fast-evolving threats using traditional perimeter and network security tools. We believe that NTA closes this gap in threat detection and response.

"ExtraHop's expertise in analytics, machine learning and decryption across cloud and hybrid environments uniquely positions us among NTA vendors to provide security teams with visibility, detection and investigation at enterprise scale."

ExtraHop Reveal(x) provides the visibility, speed and scale that enterprise security teams need to rise above the noise created by increasingly complex hybrid network architectures, multi-stage attacks, siloed tools, and the sheer volumes of traffic required for digital businesses.

Its approach uses stream processing to auto-discover and classify every transaction, user, session, device and asset in the hybrid enterprise at up to 100 Gbps, with line-rate SSL/TLS decryption and continuous packet capture.

Reveal(x) then applies multiple analytic models and advanced machine learning to produce actionable and immediate results that bridge the gap between detection and response. In this new NTA category, it differentiates on L7 content and transactional visibility that goes beyond headers, real-time decryption and packet capture, and a distinctive guided investigation environment that nurtures analyst skills and expedites validation as it moves quickly through to confident disposition.
