Connect to ExtraHop Cloud Services

ExtraHop Cloud Services provides access to ExtraHop cloud-based services through an encrypted connection. By connecting to the cloud-based ExtraHop Machine Learning Service (formerly Addy), you enable the Detections page for your ExtraHop system.

Detections are unexpected deviations from normal patterns in device or application behavior. The Machine Learning Service identifies detections from stored ExtraHop system data with a proprietary algorithm that combines time series decomposition, unsupervised learning, heuristics, and ExtraHop's unique domain expertise.
