DXC Connect has built out a major service offering focused on the ExtraHop suite of cloud-native network detection and response (NDR) solutions. 

The company has 15 trained engineers and has seen robust sales growth among enterprises for ExtraHop Reveal(x), which provides deep and continuous visibility, enabling organisations to analyse every transaction, detect threats, and respond to attacks to gain control over their threat attack surface and protect their investment in the cloud.

A release from DXC Connect says the company’s members are thrilled to have been awarded ExtraHops Asia Pacific Breakthrough Partner of the Year, a testament to investment in training, people, IP, and innovation.

“DXC Connects expertise in digital transformation consulting and their professional experience of deploying robust cybersecurity solutions when combined with the ExtraHop portfolio is a winning combination for our customers who are seeking complete visibility inside the perimeter and across the hybrid attack surface,” says ExtraHop global channels vice president Mark Fitzmaurice. 

“We are excited to be working with DXC Connect as a strategic and invested member of our Panorama Partner Program.”

Highlights of the ExtraHop Asia Pacific partner summit included keynote sales and technology strategy presentations provided by both global and regional ExtraHop executives, including Bryce Hein, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Mark Fitzmaurice, Vice President of Global Channels, and Albert Kuo, Vice President Asia Pacific.

The event also provided an opportunity for ExtraHop to update partners on training, certification and advise on go-to-market strategies.
