Announcing University of NetFlow 2013 global tour!

2012 proved to be a great year for Lancope’s University of NetFlow as it garnered over 700 attendees in 28 different cities! Here’s what we have in store for 2013.

Bigger – To start with, we have increased the number of NetFlow training courses available for 2013 with 35 free courses in North America alone. Additionally, the University will take its tour global later this year.

Better –  2013 training courses feature all new hands-on labs where attendees will learn advanced and innovative applications of NetFlow for security in addition to our existing configuration and network performance monitoring labs to provide a total of 4 hours of lab time! Attendees will be taught how to detect botnets, long flows, data exfiltration and internal scanning on a simulated network environment.  Be sure to check out the updated agenda here!

For those who attended one of our introductory NetFlow 101 seminars in previous years or are already schooled in applications of NetFlow for network performance, this year’s courses provide a deeper dive into the use and deployment of NetFlow technology from a security standpoint and enables you to become a Network Security Ninja! 

The University’s Evolution

Lancope’s University of NetFlow began educating IT professionals on NetFlow technology five years ago with an introductory NetFlow 101 bootcamp. At a time when not many people knew about the benefits of flow technology, Lancope’s University was ahead of the curve. As more and more people began to become familiar with NetFlow, the University evolved its course to focus not only on an introduction to NetFlow, but also on the benefits of using it for network performance and compliance. In 2012, Lancope surpassed the 100th seminar mark and is continuing to expand the program for the coming years.

Today, as Lancope functions as the leader in advanced applications of flow data, the University is dedicated to instruction on the value of NetFlow for maintaining a secure network. In a world where corporate networks are continuously plagued by ever-evolving threats (from malware and DDoS to insider threats and APTs), it is important to understand exactly how, when and where your network has been compromised, and by whom.

Lancope has a full schedule of NetFlow seminars available in 2013 to help IT teams do just that.
