Next Generation Intrusion Detection System

Had It With Your IDS Alert Cannon? Upgrade to Reveal(x)

Close the Gaps, Without Friction

Intrusion detection systems (IDS), popularized in the 1990s, continue to underwhelm security teams as an ineffective detection-in-depth technology against modern threats. Retire your noisy IDS and apply that budget to Reveal(x), a next-generation IDS. Your time-strapped team will thank you.

Reveal(x) is powered by machine learning (ML) anomaly detection, high-risk CVE exploit identification, contextual threat hunting, and streamlined incident response with forensics capabilities. Unlike IDS, a brittle signature technology, Reveal(x) adds post-compromise detection to expose successful intrusions originating from social engineering, credential abuse, and supply chain attacks too.

With the cloud-native Reveal(x), you can close security and compliance gaps in cloud initiatives and see into encrypted traffic, unachieved with that old IDS. And do it without friction for your DevOps innovation pipeline. DevOps, and adversaries, won't even know it's there.

Time Weakens IDS

Network evolution creates IDS blindspots:

Reveal(x) moves at the speed of your business, providing intrusion life cycle detection and response for cloud, hybrid, and encrypted traffic.


The act of intrusion takes milliseconds while breaches dwell for 56 days on average. Post-compromise is the modern reality for an effective defense posture that prevents lasting damage.

Reveal(x) full-spectrum detection powered by a blend of machine learning and rule-based analytics exposes lateral movement from intruders already inside the walls.

Investment Payback

Better security pays off by reducing operational, financial, and reputation risk. With Reveal(x), you can also buy down compliance risk in cloud initiatives and encryption blind spots. Equally important, your time-strapped defenders will recover needed cycles from ML filtered alerting, contextual threat hunting, and incident response with forensics capabilities.

Without ExtraHop, the investigation would have taken days or weeks ... Even the FBI was impressed when they found out how quickly we identified and contained the threat!
