ExtraHop announced several major platform enhancements as part of version 6.2.

These upgrades, supported by analytics and machine learning, provide IT teams situational insight and forensic capabilities required to make informed, data-driven decisions. The ExtraHop Platform's analytics-first workflow now scales to deliver 40Gbps line-rate continuous packet capture, while flexible licensing models for storage eliminate the data tax for extended lookback, saving up to 50 percent over traditional Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) tools.

With the latest updates, ExtraHop flips the traditional network analytics model on its head with an analytics-first approach that delivers real-time visibility into the performance, availability, and security of every IT system, from the edge to the cloud. Machine learning proactively surfaces anomalies, which can be easily and rapidly investigated from high-level performance metrics to individual transactions to packets in a matter of clicks rather than hours.

The following new capabilities are included in ExtraHop version 6.2:

- 40Gbps line-rate continuous packet capture provides visibility at scale for the digital enterprise.

- Extended storage model offers lookback at up to 50 percent less than competitive NPMD offerings, eliminating the data tax associated with the forensic investigation of performance and security issues. *New continuous packet capture for virtual environments extends visibility everywhere IT assets reside, providing a unified, all-up view of every transaction occurring within the organization.

- Audience-specific dashboards that surface analytics based on LDAP privileges, giving teams access to the data they need securely.

- The addition of nested queries to visual query language simplify transaction record search.

- Integration with ServiceNow further simplifies the process, automatically ticketing and triaging events to keep IT teams focused on the most critical issues.

"Process transformation cannot happen without tools to support it, and the traditional packets-first NPMD model has rendered proactive, strategic operations virtually impossible," said Jesse Rothstein, CTO and co-founder of ExtraHop. "At ExtraHop, we've recognized from the beginning that the scale, complexity, and dynamism of modern IT couldn't be addressed with post-hoc analysis of data. Modern IT demands analytics that are real-time, at scale, as well as intelligent, actionable, and predictive. We've put the NPMD market on notice: this is a new era for analytics, and we're already way out ahead."

ExtraHop 6.2 and ExtraHop Addy will be generally available on April 19, 2017.
