ExtraHop Network Analysis and Visibility Technology Recognized by Independent Research Firm
ExtraHop announced that it was named a notable vendor by Forrester Research in the Network Analysis and Visibility Landscape, Q1 2023.

The Landscape states, "Traditionally, organizations implicitly trusted the networks used to connect to company resources; malicious actors could abuse that trust and move laterally within organizations undetected. This lateral movement is often prelude to the exfiltration of high-value data and execution of destructive attacks like ransomware. Zero trust (ZT) architecture, which assumes that networks are inherently untrusted, requires visibility into and analysis of internal network traffic."

As more organizations move to adopt a ZT approach to cybersecurity, network detection and response (NDR) can accelerate the process by enhancing visibility into all aspects of the network, including hybrid networks, cloud transactions, and device types. The ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 platform can automate the discovery of every asset on the network and profile each managed, unmanaged, or rogue device to detect malicious activity before it's too late.

The Landscape identifies five core use cases for the network analysis and visibility market: hybrid cloud/multicloud threat detection; packet capture with retrospective analysis; MITRE ATT&CK framework mapping; EDR, XDR, and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) telemetry data ingestion and correlation; and application dependency mapping.

ExtraHop has a long history of identifying network-detectable cyberattack behaviors. With its industry-leading expertise, ExtraHop was the first and only NDR provider to be listed as a contributor to the MITRE ATT&CK framework and the first to natively integrate ATT&CK into its product's interface to help organizations identify gaps in their threat detection capabilities. Its retrospective threat intelligence, which applies new threat intelligence to suspicious network activity that happened in the past, also helps users identify broader attack campaigns.

"Network visibility has become an integral part of an organization's cybersecurity strategy as attackers' tactics, techniques, and procedures rapidly evolve," said Jesse Rothstein, co-founder and CTO, ExtraHop. "We believe Forrester's recognition of ExtraHop in the Network Analysis and Visibility Landscape further proves that the network is the go-to data source for detection and response, and reasserts our position as a trusted NDR partner."
