Flow-based monitoring helps detect threats originating from users’ personal smartphones, tablets and laptops
ATLANTA, June 19, 2012 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, will host the complimentary webinar, “Securing Mobile Devices for BYOD Environments,” on Thursday, June 21 at 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT. Attendees will learn how to regain network visibility and control amidst the current influx of personal mobile devices onto enterprise networks.

The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend has taken enterprise networks by storm, as employees clamor for the latest iPhone, iPad or Android device and expect to be able to use it throughout the day – whether at home or at work. According to Cisco, the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth in 2012. Meanwhile, mobile malware grew by 155 percent in 2011.
Trends like BYOD have quickly led to the vanishing of the network perimeter and a subsequent drop in the efficacy of conventional security defenses. Additionally, mobile users often circumvent corporate security policies and safeguards, and it is too cumbersome – and often impossible – to install and manage security software on every new device that enters the network.
Lancope’s StealthWatch® System solves this problem by delivering cost-effective, in-depth internal security monitoring that proactively detects issues stemming from any device, without having to install additional software or deploy expensive probes. Instead, StealthWatch takes a unique approach by analyzing mobile device information in the form of NetFlow, IPFIX or other flow data collected from existing network infrastructure.
Join this webinar and learn how to gain the actionable intelligence needed to maintain high levels of security and performance amidst a constantly-evolving network and mobile environment:
WHO: Joe Yeager, Director of Product Management, Lancope, Inc.
