ExtraHop Introduces Proactive Threat Hunting, Network Assurance Services

ExtraHop, a leader in cloud-native network detection and response (NDR), announced expanded Reveal(x) Advisor services that provide threat detection and hunting services alongside network assurance analysis.

Reveal(x) Advisor provides dedicated ExtraHop threat analysts and security advisors that deliver timely and precise analysis of priority detections, hunt the network for indicators of current or future compromise, and probe for vulnerabilities such as outdated protocol use or shadow IT.

Security teams are overwhelmed by threat volume and staff shortages. They barely have time to respond to priority alerts, let alone think proactively about their cybersecurity hygiene strategy.

The Ponemon Institute shared 60 percent of organizations that had a breach found the root cause to be a known vulnerability with a patch available. Reveal(x) Advisor addresses these challenges by helping customers assess their cybersecurity maturity, clear their alert queues and hunt for threat activity across workloads.

New services include:

  • Network assurance – Proactive analysis and review of critical assets to identify known vulnerabilities, SSL hygiene, exposure risks, unauthorized devices, shadow applications, and anomalous network behaviors that could be exploited.
  • On-demand expertise from Security Advisors – Custom working sessions with ExtraHop Security Advisors teach users to reduce attack surfaces, identify high risk protocols, and optimize system efficiency while maturing cybersecurity posture.
  • Proactive threat hunting – ExtraHop threat analysts, using the MITRE ATT&CK framework search and explore the network, system alerts and transmission data to identify malicious, suspicious, and at-risk actions that have, thus far, avoided detection.

ExtraHop’s Reveal(x) 360 SaaS NDR offering combined with Advisor services help organizations to improve their security posture, modernize cyber defenses, and address talent shortage in cybersecurity. All Reveal(x) Advisor services are available today.
