ExtraHop, Splunk Deliver New Compliance and Security Offering
ExtraHop teams with Splunk to deliver a new compliance and security product for tracking wire data and using the Splunk operational intelligence platform.LAS VEGAS—ExtraHop Networks, a provider of analytics for wire data or data in motion, joined forces with Splunk to deliver a new compliance and security offering. The product provides pervasive, context-aware monitoring that imparts intelligent compliance and security, ExtraHop officials said. The ExtraHop compliance and security offering provides correlated, cross-tier visibility and anomaly detection that complements intrusion prevention systems (IPS), intrusion detection systems (IDS) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems. Moreover, the new product is extensible and demonstrates the programmability and ease of ExtraHop integration with security platforms. In addition, ExtraHop’s integration with Splunk Enterprise transforms real-time security-related wire data into machine data for in-depth visualization, enabling IT, compliance, and security teams to easily pinpoint the system, application or infrastructure element in which a security event is occurring without using agents or offline packet capture. ExtraHop demonstrated the compliance and security offering at Splunk .conf2013, Splunk’s annual user conference here.
“As security threats, including zero-day attacks that exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities, become increasingly varied and sophisticated, real-time monitoring across all components of the application delivery chain is becoming a crucial first line of defense,” said Jesse Rothstein, CEO of ExtraHop, in a statement. “With the ExtraHop compliance and security solution and our integration with Splunk Enterprise, enterprise security teams are armed with a highly scalable solution designed to detect potential security events as they happen. With Splunk Enterprise, these anomalies can be easily visualized, enabling organizations to pinpoint the source before a serious breach occurs and prove that they have had adequate controls in place.”
