Machine Learning Solution Also Named Winner of the Application, Data, and Network Security Category for Delivering Real-Time Situational Awareness for IT and Security Operations

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2017) - ExtraHop, the leader in real-time IT analytics, today announced that its Addy machine learning solution won both the "Best of Show" and "Application, Data, and Network Security" categories in the Best of Citrix Synergy 2017 Awards. A team of SearchVirtualDesktop.com editors, IT professionals, independent analysts, and consultants, evaluated exhibiting vendors and products based on innovation, value, performance, reliability, and ease of use. ExtraHop was awarded both honors based on its innovative use of machine learning and analytics to support IT operations and digital business.

"Enterprise IT is rapidly recognizing the potential of machine learning to support more proactive, data-driven operations," said Bryce Hein, SVP of Marketing at ExtraHop. "This recognition from the judges of Best of Citrix Synergy validates ExtraHop's forward-thinking approach, and reaffirms the growing market demand for next-generation analytics and machine learning solutions."

Organizations across all verticals are improving the performance and security of business-critical systems and delivering better digital experiences with ExtraHop Addy. The machine learning solution is the first in the industry to observe and analyze all digital interactions and apply machine learning to detect anomalies in real time. Addy builds on the ExtraHop platform's real-time analytics, applying advanced algorithms and heuristics -- as well as crowd-sourced feedback -- to build continuous baselines for every device, network, and application. The service then proactively detects and surfaces potential performance and security issues in the environment, enabling IT teams to easily and rapidly investigate problems from high-level performance metrics to individual transactions to packets in a matter of clicks rather than hours.
