It turns that data into an accurate source of IT intelligence providing answers to the toughest network questions including users, applications, security, web, storage and more.

Furthermore, ExtraHop Assessments give you an unprecendented view of the entire environment within minutes –

  • A global view with deep insights allows you to detect and solve most problems
  • Simple, rich, customisable analytics and search to dig into persistent issues
  • Start with or drill down to individual users, metrics, or packets to simplify investigations
  • Gain visibility across data centres, the cloud, and remote sites

Citrix assessment services: Keep applications running and users productive

Are you a Citrix administrator constantly troubleshooting performance problems that aren’t caused by Citrix?

Then you know that traditional application performance management (APM) tools can’t fully monitor user activity or the performance of the Citrix infrastructure. In fact, most Citrix monitoring tools use burdensome agents and scrape data from event logs, so you don’t get real-time specifics about user activity for both XenDesktop and XenApp.

The ExtraHop wire data analytics platform provides real-time, agentless visibility into the Citrix environment, applications delivered over Citrix, and the rest of the IT infrastructure, including the database, storage, and network.

The ExtraHop platform is verified as Citrix Ready for Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp, and NetScaler.

Our free, newly updated Citrix Monitoring & Troubleshooting Guide features real-world examples and best practices of how to improve performance in your Citrix environment by:

  • Reducing login times and latency
  • Pinpointing the cause of slowness that originates outside the Citrix environment
  • Improving end-user experience and employee

PCI Compliance – cut the complexity and the cost

The growing number of controls in the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) are increasing the costs of compliance. At the same time the frequency and severity of payment security breaches has driven up fines for noncompliance. For companies that suffer a breach, the financial consequences are even greater, and include both recovery costs as well as breach-associated penalties.

Let ExtraHop help your organisation eliminate penalties, reduce audit costs, and help protect against a breach with a comprehensive assessment of your organisation’s compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard.

Our solutions architects work with your team to conduct a full compliance review:

  • Identify cardholder data sent in cleartext
  • Upgrade weak encryption
  • Eliminate data leakage out of the Cardholder Data Environment
  • Enforce Entry Group boundaries with strong network segmentation

Support audits with reports on out-of-compliance transactions and devices

Datacentre Migration and Consolidation

So you’re ready to migrate your complex infrastructure (which will probably make it even more complex). Now what?

With so many dependencies and complications in your environment, it might seem impossible to guarantee a seamless end user experience during the move—and customer churn due to poor performance is only one fraction of potential migration costs.

What ExtraHop Brings to the Table

Real-time IT analytics allows you to map the entire IT infrastructure across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud environments for a comprehensive, up-to-the-minute understanding of your complete environment.

Add in machine learning for anomaly detection, and you can look forward to a stress-free, low-cost migration:

  • Discover all applications and infrastructure automatically
  • Identify the targeted workloads that must be moved
  • Map all dependent systems to reduce the risk of service disruption
  • Provide affected teams with performance benchmarks before, during, and after migration
  • Verify that all legacy systems are decommissioned

With ExtraHop, your team can access the empirical data it needs to make your migration a breeze and reduce the costs, risks, and time needed to complete your migration.

Cloud (y) conditions don’t have to mean limited visibility

Migrating applications and infrastructure is risky and complex. Whether you’re selecting which applications to migrate, planning your move, or monitoring for performance, ExtraHop offers the visibility and contextual awareness you need for a successful migration to and monitoring of cloud infrastructure.

Once those apps are in the cloud, you need a way to benchmark performance, manage VMs to control costs, and ensure the performance, availability, and security of the critical systems on which your business relies.

How visibility can help you in the cloud –

  • Simplify Migration
    Auto-discover and auto-classify all IT assets, document dependencies and set baselines before the move
  • Keep Vendors Honest
    Gain real-time access to performance metrics to keep your critical applications running
  • Optimise Cloud Spend
    Gain visibility into all cloud assets to understand what’s happening and be smart with cloud resources
  • Secure Operations
    Monitor all traffic including intra-instance traffic to improve your security posture in the cloud

By leveraging accurate and unbiased insight from the ExtraHop platform across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud infrastructure, we help ensure a migration that mitigates risk, reduces complexity, and optimises performance and availability.

Application mapping – Know the shape of your enterprise

It is increasingly important to maintain an accurate inventory of everything within your environment and the dependencies between each device and system.

How do you currently observe all the interactions within your environment? Maybe you have a legacy approach that impacts upon performance or a consultant-based system that relies on human knowledge?

IT analytics from ExtraHop passively observe all interactions between all systems.

Using this visibility, Solutions Architects have developed workflows for asset discovery, dependency mapping, and identification of core dependencies and shared services. This brings your environment into focus with proven methodologies to deliver an accurate, real-time view of your infrastructure.

Know before you go: The great migration challenge

Whether you’re moving to the cloud, consolidating your data centres or moving to a new platform, you want your migration project to happen quickly and safely.

Migrations can often be risky without a clear understanding of all applications and infrastructure –

  • Project delays
  • Cost Overruns
  • Service Disruptions
  • Post Migration Performance Issues
  • Failure to Decommission Services

By knowing before going, you can avoid unnecessary downtime and be sure that your users experience remain consistent. Download the whitepaper to learn about how wire data analytics can be used to map your move, decommission the legacy systems safely and validate your project’s success.
