NAV solutions, sometimes called Network Detection and Response (NDR) solutions, are essential for creating a zero-trust architecture. Not only are we at Exclusive Networks convinced of this, but now the experts at Forrester are too. The current Forrester report “The Network Analysis And Visibility Landscape, Q1 2023” assumes that networks are inherently untrustworthy and therefore advocates visibility and analysis of internal network traffic.
The internal network as a gateway
In the past, many companies have ignored internal networks as potential gateways for cyberattacks, notes Forrester. Cybercriminals have promptly taken advantage of the lack of security awareness to roam and camp out on corporate networks. The consequences of this negligence can be catastrophic. By moving undetected around a network, attackers can gain access to privileged systems, install ransomware or other malware.
Countering potential attackers with ExtraHop
Companies can thoroughly counteract attacks with NAV tools, because they offer intelligence and insight “into all aspects of the network, all the way to the endpoint and the cloud”, according to the latest Forrester report, which singles out ExtraHop as a “notable NAV provider”. NAV solutions track and stop attacks before they can cause damage to an organisation. NAV solutions enable security teams to detect malicious behaviour that other cybersecurity tools may miss, especially when attackers encrypt their activities or have already gained access to the network.

In addition, a Total Economic Impact study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of ExtraHop found a 193 percent return on investment over three years for companies deploying the ExtraHop Reveal(x) 360 NAV solution.
