ExtraHop Networks, a network- and application-performance management (APM) solutions provider, has updated its ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system. Version 3 provides a unified view of the entire IT environment so IT personnel can identify and remediate network and application issues faster and more accurately.

“IT environments are only growing in complexity, especially as technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing take hold. As a result, it’s becoming more difficult to quickly detect, triage, and troubleshoot network and application issues,” said Jesse Rothstein, CEO and co-founder of ExtraHop Networks.

Version 3.0 of the ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system features advanced network- and application-performance management and analysis functionality focused on helping IT teams proactively troubleshoot and remediate complex issues. Several capabilities have been added in this version:

  • Unified Visibility Across Multiple ExtraHop Systems: Designed for large enterprise customers with distributed operations and tens of thousands of devices under management, the ExtraHop Central Manager provides unified reporting and administration of multiple ExtraHop systems.

  • More Concurrent Users: Although many tools are used by only a single individual within the IT organization, the ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system enables multiple people and teams to triage and troubleshoot issues across the network, Web, database, and storage tiers simultaneously.

  • Dynamic Groups: The ExtraHop system now can be configured to group devices automatically according to a variety of criteria including name, VLAN, and IP address. Dynamic groups are updated continuously and can be applied to dashboard widgets, reports, activity maps, and alerts.

  • Application Activity Maps: A new user-interface enhancement, Application Activity Maps facilitate troubleshooting and auditing via dependency visualization. The maps represent network and application activity through information derived from ExtraHop's industry-leading real-time transaction analysis. Application Activity Maps can also be exported to Microsoft Visio or PDF.
