Vocus NZ selects ExtraHop security platform Featured


Fibre and network solutions provider Vocus has deployed the cloud-native security platform Reveal(x) from enterprise cyber analytics provider ExtraHop.

ExtraHop says the deployment has been made to amplify its security posture with network visibility.

Vocus says Reveal(x) enables it to support its decentralised workforce with real-time visibility, threat detection, and strong investigation capabilities that extend across its hybrid, multi-cloud environment, including the critical VPN infrastructure that supports its remote workforce.

“We wanted to have a detection and response solution that was easy to use and deploy, scalable, and could proactively analyse in real time our corporate network and cloud traffic, as well as identify any anomalies on the VPN from remote users accessing the network,” said Ivan Reutskiy, Security Manager, Vocus New Zealand.

“From the initial stages of the proof of concept, we were impressed with the feature functionality of ExtraHop Reveal(x),” said Reutskiy.

“The fact that Reveal(x) could provide visibility across our hybrid environment, give us critical insight into encrypted traffic, and use that data to deliver high-quality alerts and detections set it apart.”

“Many organisations are compromised without realising it despite having firewalls and AV products. However, ExtraHop provides enterprises with visibility in real-time, enabling you to respond quickly to incidents. After all, if you can detect something fast and you have response processes in place, it might be the difference between a low impact and high impact breach.

“ExtraHop ticked all the boxes we were looking for on the security side, and it also helps us stay proactive on the operations side. We can use it to identify expired certs, monitor legacy applications, and ensure that VPN connections are both secure and reliable for our users.”
