Lancope and Cisco to Host Webinar on Leveraging NetFlow to Combat Advanced Persistent Threats

Flow-based behavioral analysis significantly improves network visibility, security and resiliency for government agencies and enterprises

ATLANTA, July 19, 2011 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, will host a complimentary webinar with Cisco Systems on Tuesday, July 26 at 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT. Also hosted by the Digital Government Institute, the webinar will discuss how government agencies and enterprises can leverage NetFlow to gain increased network visibility for combating advanced persistent threats (APT).

By collecting and analyzing flow data from existing network devices, organizations can cost-effectively obtain the end-to-end insight needed to vastly improve network security, resiliency and compliance efforts. To register for the free webinar, please go to: http://www.lancope.com/news-events/webinars/combat-cyber-threats/.

“Today’s threat environment is constantly evolving and maturing in levels of sophistication and capabilities,” said Adam Powers, CTO at Lancope. “Perimeter security is no longer enough to protect prominent government and corporate entities from damaging cyber attacks. Instead, organizations must begin to leverage the flow data inherent in their network infrastructure to create an always-on sensor grid for proactively detecting and thwarting attacks that bypass external defenses.”

Lancope’s StealthWatch® System collects and analyzes flow data to provide the in-depth, actionable intelligence required to troubleshoot a wide range of network and security issues across both physical and virtual networks. The system fills in the gaps left by other network and security solutions to dramatically reduce the time from problem onset to resolution.

Not relying on signature updates, StealthWatch detects both zero-day attacks that bypass perimeter defenses, as well as insider threats including device misconfigurations, network misuse, unauthorized access and data leakage. Through new security functionality, StealthWatch will now also combine internal network insight with intelligence from the perimeter for even greater contextual awareness.

“Due to the extremely sensitive information they harbor, government networks are highly prone to cyber security attacks,” said Chris Coleman, technical leader of Cyber Security Solutions for Cisco Systems. “The recent rash of high-profile attacks on government entities and corporations makes it clear that organizations require new levels of protection to survive in today’s threat landscape. Together, Cisco and Lancope provide the in-depth situational awareness needed to significantly bolster the network defenses of frequently targeted environments.”
