Whitepaper: 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Network Detection & Response

by ExtraHopOct 20, 2020

Network Detection and Response (NDR) is rapidly emerging as a must-have capability in modern security operations, providing In its second annual Market Guide for Network Detection and Response*, Gartner provides insight into this accelerating market. Key takeaways from Gartner include:

"Enterprises should strongly consider NDR solutions to complement signature-based tools and network sandboxes. Many Gartner clients have reported that NDR tools have detected suspicious network traffic that other perimeter security tools had missed."

Gartner is pleased to say ExtraHop is included as a Representative Vendor in this new high-growth category of Network Detection and Response.

Read the guide to understand which gap Gartner believes NDR fills in the crowded cyber security market, as well as which vendors can support key security objectives including hybrid and multicloud visibility, faster incident response, and stronger security hygiene.

Research Report: 2020 SANS Enterprise Cloud Incident Response Survey

by ExtraHopOct 20, 2020

SANS surveyed 218 enterprises to discover the factors that are affecting their ability to respond to incidents in the cloud. They learned that most incidents are resolved in a matter of days, not hours.

Find out how compromises impacted respondents and which systems were affected. From budget to security tools and critical skills, learn which factors affected respondent's incident response times, and read SANS' predictions and recommendations for the future of cloud security and incident response.

Whitepaper: 2020 SANS Network Visibility and Threat Detection Survey

by ExtraHopMay 01, 2020

As organizations move to the cloud, encrypt communications, adopt IoT and manage third-party vendors, the complexity of the network increases--impeding visibility and impacting security. In this SANS survey, 59% believe that lack of network visibility poses a high or very high risk to their operations, and 64% of respondents experienced at least one compromise over the past 12 months.

Network data flowing between clients and applications is a rich source of information, which can be looked at as the ground source of truth. Organizations that monitor their network data can develop more in-depth visibility to detect and respond to threats, despite skyrocketing complexity.

Read this report to learn how to do more with the network data you already have and what to look for in a network visibility tool.

Whitepaper: A New Take on Cloud Shared Responsibility

by ExtraHopApr 16, 2021

By now, it's assumed that most cloud customers have a good grasp on the shared responsibility model, but the models offered by providers are sometimes more akin to a business proposal than a security plan. Without clarity, the path to a secure cloud infrastructure becomes murky.

This SANS whitepaper will help you navigate cloud infrastructure nuances and strengthen your security posture. Learn the key components of a cloud-based detection and response model and understand the strengths and limitations of on-premises tools when applied to the cloud.

Whitepaper: A Practical Guide for Shields Up - For Organizations

by ExtraHopMay 10, 2022

In response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued its first-ever Shields Up notice, warning that with its cyber capabilities and history of targeting Western governments and corporations, cyberattacks from Russia are likely, if not imminent.

Since its inception in 2018, the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has worked to provide critical guidance and information to government and private sector organizations about critical cyber threats.

Read this white paper to get the new CISA guidance organizations with additional considerations from ExtraHop for how best to prepare for and defend against this attack activity.

Research Report: Cloud & Hybrid Security Tooling Report

by ExtraHopJul 08, 2021

Organizations choose to host their critical workloads and data in various locations. However, a significant majority share one thing in common—they know they have gaps in their security toolsets. Nearly two-thirds plan to migrate even more workloads and data to the cloud, and roughly the same number plan to add new security tools by 2022.

In this report, you'll learn:

  • The current state of cybersecurity tooling
  • The challenges facing security teams and the gaps in common toolsets
  • How network detection and response (NDR) can help fill security gaps

Whitepaper: Dark Reading: Close the Visibility Gap

by ExtraHopMay 10, 2022

Broad adoption of encryption technologies is causing major shifts in the security operations and cyber threat landscape. This has led to changes in attacker techniques, creating fertile ground for the evolution of a new breed of advanced attacks.

As attackers grow more sophisticated, and regulations require tighter security and privacy measures, there is no escaping the decision to encrypt. Organizations must find a way to balance the increasing expectations for data security and data privacy, against the necessity of maintaining visibility to ensure operational security.

Read this Dark Reading white paper to learn the risks and rewards of implementing strategic decryption. Get specific guidance security teams need to retain visibility for threat detection, investigation, and response—without compromising on business requirements.
