Independent Research Firm Analysis found 87% Reduction in Time to Resolve Threats with ExtraHop Featured

By ExtraHop

Study concludes that ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 delivers cost savings and business benefits for enterprise customers

COMPANY NEWS:  ExtraHop, the leader in cloud-native network detection and response, today announced the results of The Total Economic Impact™Of ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360. The study, conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by ExtraHop, reveals that a composite organisation made up of ExtraHop customers benefited from an 87% decrease in time to threat resolution, more than $590,000 savings in threat detection and resolution over three years, and a three-year 193% return on investment (ROI)."

According to the study, ExtraHop provides measurable benefits for businesses including faster threat detection and resolution, faster response to unplanned outages, reduced downtime from outages, and significant savings from retiring legacy security solutions. Forrester's analysis of the benefits concluded that "Reveal(x)360 decreases time to threat detection by 83% and time to threat resolution by 87%."

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, governments and security experts around the world have noticed a significant increase in cyberattack activity. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and other government agencies such as ENISA, CERT-EU, ACSC, and SingCERT have strongly encouraged enterprises to focus on strengthening their overall security postures, starting with reducing the likelihood of a damaging cyber intrusion. One key recommendation made by these agencies is that organisations disable all unnecessary or insecure ports and protocols.

In the new report, ExtraHop conducted an analysis of enterprise IT environments to benchmark the cybersecurity posture of organisations based on open ports and sensitive protocol exposure so that security and IT leaders can assess their risk posture and attack surface visibility relative to other organisations.

Findings from the study include:

  • Improved time to threat detection, resolution and remediation: Reveal(x) 360 decreases time to threat detection by 83%, time to remediate security threats by 86% and time to threat resolution by 87%.
  • Faster response to unplanned outages: After implementing Reveal(x) 360, unexpected outages decrease by 66%, the time needed to solve unplanned outages decreases 92%, and the number of IT professionals involved in researching an outage decreases by 50%.
  • Reduced cost of existing security solutions: After improving network visibility with Reveal(x) 360, organizations are able to retire pre-existing security solutions that they no longer needed. Retiring legacy security solutions saved nearly US $373,000.
  • Improved communication: Customers interviewed for the study reported Reveal(x) 360 helped drive alignment and collaboration across IT and security teams.
  • Reduced risk of security breaches: Reveal(x) 360 helped bolster customer security environments, potentially preventing costly security breaches.

For the purposes of this study, Forrester interviewed ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 customers across four industries and aggregated their experiences to create a composite organisation.

Prior to using Reveal(x) 360, the customers were using a combination of firewalls, endpoint detection and response (EDR) products, security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, and packet capture tools.

"We did a comparison, and ExtraHop outperformed everybody. They had the scaling capabilities we needed and the alert accuracy, granularity, and AI analytics capabilities we wanted," said a technical director of cybersecurity operations in the communications industry interviewed for the study.

"Reveal(x) 360 allows us to get complete visibility of the ground truth for our full network environment and make the right call when it comes to identifying and removing bad traffic." In a crowded cybersecurity market, the study notes ExtraHop customers reported "significant improvement in visibility into their network environment," to gain "immediate insight into their network status across all environments," allowing them to "detect and respond to security threats at a much faster rate."

"Because we have more visibility, we have a better understanding of what's happening and what we can do. The Reveal(x) 360 platform has shifted our attitude from reactive to proactive," said a director of cybersecurity at a financial services company interviewed for the study.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
