ExtraHop, a provider of real-time IT analytics with customers including Sony, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Adobe, and Google, has announced the launch of ExtraHop Addy – a cloud service (SaaS application) that applies machine learning to the richest source of IT data – wire data – to provide real-time situational insight for IT teams.
According to ExtraHop, organizations overwhelmingly want to be data-driven but the quality of the data and the ability to access it at the pace of business is a significant barrier. Data is vast and growing and increasingly distributed across on-premises, cloud, and remote sites. With Addy, ExtraHop is tearing down these barriers, delivering real-time, objective insight that makes data-driven operations a reality.
“ESG research shows security and analytics as the top two priorities for technology buyers in 2017,” said Nik Rouda, Senior Analyst with ESG. “Leveraging the scale of resources of the cloud, machine learning is poised to become the next great change-agent for IT operations in these areas. ExtraHop’s approach, coupled with the size and richness of their data set, puts them at the forefront of this next evolution.”
ExtraHop Addy provides real-time visibility across the entire spectrum of IT operations, from the data center to the cloud to the edge, federating that data within the ExtraHop user interface (UI) to provide a unified view of the environment. Alerts are surfaced and visualized within the platform in real time, allowing IT to see what’s happening ‘right now’ as well as graphically represent anomalies and outages over time.
“ExtraHop has pioneered data-driven operations with its platform for wire data analytics. Based on an innovative stream processing engine, ExtraHop provides a real-time view across the entire IT environment,” said Jesse Rothstein, Co-Founder and CTO of ExtraHop. “With Addy, we’re taking the next step, applying machine learning techniques to this vast data set while leveraging the scale, elasticity, and compute power of the cloud.”
ExtraHop Addy will be generally available starting in April 2017, as well as through an Early Access Program for select participants.
“ExtraHop Addy brings our environment into focus,” said David Johnson, Enterprise Systems Support Specialist with the State of Washington. “With this service, we’re alerted to issues we didn’t know we had, and it makes us much more proactive in resolving them before the effects are widespread. We now have the data we need to be smarter about how we operate.”
