ExtraHop Partners With Carahsoft to Provide Wire Data Analytics to the Government Sector

New Channel Partnership Expands ExtraHop's Public Sector Presence and Enables Carahsoft to Deliver Real-Time Operational Intelligence to Government Customers

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT operational intelligence, today announced a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., a trusted government IT solutions provider. Carahsoft has deep expertise working with government agencies and supports an extensive ecosystem of software manufacturers, value-added resellers, system integrators, and consulting partners committed to helping government agencies select and deploy cutting-edge solutions designed to scale to their evolving IT demands. Under the partnership, Carahsoft will provide sales and marketing support and government contract expertise to promote ExtraHop's solutions in the public sector market.

"According to a survey conducted by MeriTalk last year, 81 percent of the 152 federal IT managers surveyed asserted that innovation is vital to their agency's future," said Michael Shrader, Vice President of Intelligence and Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft. "As government agencies increasingly seek to adopt cloud, software-defined networking, virtualization, and other next-gen network solutions, they need a platform that offers them visibility and insight into these complex, hyper-dynamic environments. ExtraHop provides that insight."

The ExtraHop wire data analytics platform goes far beyond traditional performance management tools, passively monitoring all L2-L7 communications, including full bidirectional transactional payloads. Through its partnership with ExtraHop, Carahsoft can now offer its reseller partners and government agencies deep, correlated visibility across all tiers of the IT environment, empowering them to streamline their operations with real-time intelligence about the performance, availability, and security of their applications and infrastructure.

Users can start with a high-level view of performance and then drill down to granular device- and transaction-level details to quickly and easily pinpoint the root cause of a problem. The ExtraHop wire data analytics platform reduces troubleshooting times and the need for specialists, empowering IT teams to streamline operations and provide business stakeholders with the information they need to make data-supported decisions. The operational intelligence provided by ExtraHop has already resulted in significant cost-savings for organizations such as McKesson, Concur, and Alaska Airlines.

"Carahsoft selected ExtraHop as the ideal platform to provide critical IT visibility for its government customs and partners. Not only does the ExtraHop wire data analytics platform deploy easily in as little as 15 minutes, it delivers the correlated, cross-tier visibility these agencies need to evaluate, adopt, and deploy cutting-edge solutions," said Shrader.

"With its long-standing history working with a wide array of government agencies, Carahsoft uniquely understands the IT challenges faced by the government sector as its agencies work to successfully integrate leading-edge technology solutions," said Tom Estep, Vice President of Channel Sales at ExtraHop. "Through our partnership with Carahsoft, ExtraHop is now poised to help these agencies evaluate, adopt, and integrate IT solutions critical to their efficiency and success by equipping them with unprecedented visibility into their IT operations."

Over the past year, ExtraHop has delivered to market a host of new solutions built to provide visibility into the performance, availability, and security of IT environments. In November 2013, the company announced the ExtraHop for Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution, designed to optimize and provide visibility into the performance of workloads running in cloud environments. In August 2013, ExtraHop announced the Persistent Monitoring Architecture, a joint solution with Arista Networks enabling real-time, persistent mobile visibility into hyper-dynamic, software-defined environments.

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly.
