In recent years, an increasing number of businesses in various industries have undertaken digital transformation in efforts to promote digital marketing, and digital services are becoming widespread in areas directly connected with daily life, such as EC sites, online banking, and Web media. It is predicted that there will be even greater opportunities to experience digital transformation firsthand in the future. Going forward, those businesses that, by utilizing digital technology, can provide distinctly new value in comparison to conventional practices are expected to gain increased competitive strength, while, in contrast, those businesses that are slow to adopt digital technology are highly likely to experience a significant loss of opportunity. In this way, the importance of success in digital marketing is expected to increase further still, as a proposition on which the very survival of companies may depend.

The ExtraHop Performance Platform that Macnica Networks now offers is a breakthrough approach that utilizes enterprise performance and cyber analytics on all network interactions and applies advanced machine learning for complete visibility, real-time detection, and guided investigation.

With this approach, ExtraHop helps the world’s leading enterprises rise above network blind spots, organizational silos, and runaway technology. Whether ensuring delivery of critical applications or securing investment in the cloud, a business will be able to accomplish real-time analysis of network traffic and perform detailed studies through packet-unit drill-down, all with just a single click. ExtraHop enables smooth and integrated analysis of complex digital service infrastructures comprising various systems.
The most significant features of this solution are its broad range and depth of analysis. In recent years, service providers have been offering a series of digital services with infrastructures based on complex interlocking systems such as DNS/authentication/Web/applications/databases, etc. This solution provides broad coverage of over 50 protocols, enabling integrated analysis of almost all protocols used in digital service infrastructures. And because analyses can be performed not only at the network layer (L2-L4) but also at the application layer (L5-L7), including public cloud environments (AWS, Microsoft Azure), it enables deep visualization and analysis of payload data and detailed visualization and analysis of packet units.

By this, the ExtraHop solution can measure the performance of various systems, from infrastructure, including the public cloud environment that supports digital business, to individual applications, and enables the continuous delivery of digital services with high quality of experience for users to acquire new customers. And can prevent the loss of existing customers, which is one of the most critical elements in the success of digital business. It also enables mechanisms to be put in place to deliver a system alert in the event of a system failure, before the problem can lead to user complaints, and to identify the cause and implement measures for system recovery quickly.

As a strategic distributor for ExtraHop, Macnica Networks will expand the service platform visualization/analysis solution in Japan. By providing ExtraHop's cutting-edge technology and know-how to Japanese businesses, Macnica Networks will not only support clients in their efforts to deliver top-quality digital services but will also carry out activities to aid in strengthening the competitiveness of clients through digital transformation.
