ExtraHop announced new professional services for cloud migration, datacenter migration, and microsegmentation.

These fully-customizable offerings bring together the deep domain expertise of ExtraHop solutions architects with the real-time, multi-tier visibility delivered by the ExtraHop platform to help organizations streamline major IT transformation and security initiatives.

New professional services now offered by ExtraHop include:

- Cloud and Datacenter Migration: Cloud and datacenter migration experts map the entire IT infrastructure across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud environments to discover all assets, map dependencies, separate clients and servers, and categorize shared services like DNS and Active Directory. Based on this comprehensive, up-to-the-minute understanding of the complete environment, ExtraHop experts build a comprehensive plan, including move groups and migration order, to ensure seamless migration.

- Microsegmentation: Leveraging the automatic device discovery and mapping capabilities of the ExtraHop platform, ExtraHop Solutions Architects work with internal teams to develop and implement a segmentation strategy that takes into account industry-specific considerations, such as medical devices in healthcare and PCI compliance in retail. ExtraHop takes a vendor-agnostic approach that fits with the network virtualization technology selected by the customer, and delivers a comprehensive view of every network-connected device, its communications, and a plan for how to best segment its traffic.

- Application Mapping: Leverage ExtraHop IT analytics to observe all interactions between IT systems including asset discovery, dependency mapping, and identification of core dependencies and shared services.

"In our experience, even organizations with a lot of confidence in their application inventories generally only believe they have 80 percent visibility. When we actually do the mapping, we find that it's more often only about 20 percent," said Eric Thomas, Director of Professional Services at ExtraHop. "When it comes to initiatives like migration and microsegmentation, a complete inventory is absolutely mission critical. With ExtraHop technology and best practices, our experts can help customers understand critical dependencies to support smooth transformations. As a result, IT teams can stay focused on continuous improvement and innovation."

In addition to these specialized projects, ExtraHop offers implementation and integration services to configure the ExtraHop platform to a company's unique needs and build a strong foundation for success. Experts use the Open Data Stream and Open Data Context API to integrate the ExtraHop platform seamlessly with IT and security platforms such as ServiceNow, threat intelligence, and SIEM platforms.
