SEATTLE -- May 14, 2013

ExtraHop Networks, the provider of real-time IT operational intelligence from
wire data, today announced that its ExtraHop for AWS solution won the Cloud
Computing and Virtualization category of the 2013 Best of Interop awards;
other finalists included entries from Brocade and Riverbed. ExtraHop’s
flagship EH8000 appliance was also named a finalist in the Management and
Monitoring category, distinguishing ExtraHop as the only company to be
nominated in two Best of Interop categories.

Moving application workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS) introduces yet
another layer of abstraction that hinders visibility into the performance of
business-critical applications. And while AWS provides basic availability and
resource utilization metrics to customers, it still does not provide the
critical insights needed to troubleshoot problems, answer important business
questions, track security compliance, monitor end-user activity, or tune the
infrastructure for performance and efficiency.

“ExtraHop for AWS does something that's not been possible before—offers
visibility into how all parts of a customer's systems are performing in the
cloud,” wrote Best of Interop judge and InformationWeek Editor at Large,
Charlie Babcock. “Amazon has its own list of operational statistics that it
feeds to customers, but it's not enough to find out what users really need to
know. ... [ExtraHop] knows about the first DNS request from an interaction,
the authentication clearance, database access, the middleware response and the
last byte to be served out of storage. It can analyze the network traffic for
transaction content, the events that are taking place as software modules talk
to each other. With that analysis, an IT manager can get an answer to the
question ‘What's happening in the environment right now?’”

ExtraHop for AWS enables companies to finally gain visibility into public
clouds, supplying IT with actionable operational intelligence across all
environments. ExtraHop for AWS is the only solution that not only can
correlate and monitor anything running in Amazon’s Elastic Compute 2 (EC2)
environments, but also in the AWS Relational Database Server (RDS), AWS Simple
Queuing Service (SQS), and even AWS Simple Storage Service (S3).The ability
to see and correlate issues across physical and cloud environments to this
depth yields enormous time and cost savings for enterprises and makes moving
to cloud infrastructures a much less nerve-wracking task.

“The Best of Interop Awards showcase IT vendors pushing the boundaries of
technology,” wrote Andrew Conry-Murray, editor of Network Computing. “Each
category winner demonstrates a commitment to innovation and has a compelling
offering deserving of recognition.”

“ExtraHop for AWS enables IT teams, for the first time, to unify insight into
on-premises applications and infrastructure with equally deep visibility for
workloads running in AWS,” said Jesse Rothstein, ExtraHop CEO. “This Best of
Interop honor highlights the advantages of our technology, which is the only
solution to mine wire data in real time to provide complete visibility into
the performance of all applications, all the time, in real time.”
