The ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 platform uses the power of cloud intelligence to help security teams eliminate blind spots and detect threats other tools miss. Built on cloud-scale AI, Reveal(x) 360 decrypts and analyzes all network and cloud traffic in real time to expose advanced threats like supply chain attacks, zero days, and APTs. Indexed records and a streamlined investigation workflow enable users to investigate and quickly remediate threat activity.
