Do you have the right tools for the job in your Security Operations Centre? This is why you need network detection and response in your armoury.

Security teams have to navigate a constant stream of new threats to protect hybrid networks and sensitive data. Often they’re reliant on legacy tools that don’t quite match the scope and complexity of the environment. But you can’t secure what you can’t see. Ideally, your team needs eyes on every interaction that takes place across your network. 

But cloud and hybrid environments expand your attack surface and make it harder to see into critical areas, especially in the case of multi-cloud. So, where do you turn to get the visibility you need? 

Network detection and response (NDR) tackles the problem from the inside out. Cloud-native NDR in particular can eliminate blind spots and cut through the complexity in hybrid, cloud, and multi-cloud scenarios. 

There are few solutions on the market that provide complete visibility through a combination of discovery, identification, contextualisation, framework support, and real-time threat detection, as well as guided investigation. In our opinion, ExtraHop Reveal(x) is the industry leader. 

Reveal(x) is currently the only product on the market to provide full-spectrum detection and response for security and performance teams. Taking the wire as its data source, it reduces finger-pointing and MTTR by acting as a single source of truth, provides faster time to value, and gives your team eyes on every interaction that takes place on your network. So you’ll know about problems before your users even notice, and benefit from correlated visibility to filter out the noise and pin down the issue quickly.

Malicious actors can bypass or shut off EDR and SIEM tools, but – implemented properly – Reveal(x) NDR addresses the blindspot they leave and integrates with complementary software like CrowdStrike to give you full coverage. Other features that make it stand out from our perspective to include:

• Holistic view of E-W and N-S traffic that can’t be spoofed or evaded.

• Line-rate decryption of SSL/TLS 1.3 encrypted traffic with perfect forward secrecy.

• Built in visibility into framework requirements, including CIS controls 1 & 2, MITRE and NIST CSF recommendations.

• 100 Gbps of full payload analysis from L2 to L7 based on wire data with complete context.

• Automatic, continuous device discovery, identification and classification.


It might sound trite, but it’s true that prevention is better than the cure. If you’re going to secure your enterprise proactively from insider and outsider threats, if you’re going to deliver a cybersecurity strategy that protects your data and reduces risk, you need to make sure your tools are up to the job.
