ExtraHop announced ExtraHop Addy, a cloud service that applies machine learning to the richest source of IT data — wire data — to provide real-time situational insight for IT teams.

ExtraHop Addy is always-on, serving as the eyes and ears for IT and helping them take a proactive, data-driven approach to supporting and securing the digital experience.

ExtraHop Addy is a SaaS offering that observes and analyzes all digital interactions and applies machine learning to detect anomalies in real time. Using wire data from the ExtraHop platform, Addy builds continuous baselines for every device, network, and application, and then proactively detects and surfaces potential issues in the environment. The core algorithm and heuristics also incorporate feedback from in-house and crowd-sourced domain expertise to reduce the number of false positives and keep IT teams focused on the most critical issues. This means smarter, more proactive and data-driven operations that enable users to deliver everything from increased website uptime to more efficient assembly lines to better patient care.

ExtraHop Addy provides real-time visibility across the entire spectrum of IT operations, from the datacenter 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.
