ExtraHop announced support for integration with AWS CloudWatch, CloudTrail, and VPC Flow Log data, providing enhanced visibility and contextual analysis for customers with AWS and hybrid environments.

ExtraHop's solution for AWS provides customers the ability to troubleshoot applications and services in real-time, tune performance, and detect potential security threats in their cloud and hybrid environments using wire data, advanced analytics, and machine learning capabilities from a single platform.

With the latest enhancements, cloud teams have instant access to valuable insights from the combination of AWS-native data and real-time service monitoring and anomaly detection capabilities from ExtraHop. Customer benefits of this integration include:

- Optimize performance and utilization of AWS and hybrid resources. Teams responsible for deploying applications and services are often challenged to understand how the behavior of systems impacts utilization and performance of the underlying resources. With AWS data in ExtraHop, teams can easily correlate service performance with AWS metrics such as CPU, disk utilization, and network.

- Correlate changes made in the environment with service disruption. Unintended changes to settings and configurations in an IT environment is a common cause of service disruption. When AWS data is combined with ExtraHop, teams can easily correlate application and service performance with user identity and actions, and gather additional details such as login attempts.

- Accelerate root cause analysis. Some performance and security issues require a deeper level of analysis and investigation. ExtraHop augments AWS data on top talkers and conversations by providing the who (users), what (applications and protocols), when (in seconds instead of minutes), and how (commands and files) behind every transaction. By seeing everything in context, organizations can quickly pinpoint the source of issues and avoid lost time in the war room.

"IT teams across various industries require visibility into both on-premises and cloud environments in order to troubleshoot applications and services, tune performance and detect potential threats," said Jesse Rothstein, CTO and co-founder, ExtraHop. "With ExtraHop for AWS Bundle, wire data and AWS data come together to identify the source of failures and latency with visibility into every transaction in digital applications and services delivered from cloud and hybrid environments. Teams are now armed with real-time, empirical, granular event data to help bring urgent attention and focused action to the source of performance problems and outages."
