Lancope’s NetFlow-Based StealthWatch Monitoring Solution Wins GSN Award for ‘Best Network Security’
Lancope honored by GSN’s Homeland Security Awards for comprehensively protecting both government and corporate networks
ATLANTA, Nov. 15, 2011 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, has been honored by GSN: Government Security News for its strength in leveraging NetFlow to protect government and corporate networks. As the winner in the ‘Best Network Security/Enterprise Firewall’ category of GSN’s Homeland Security Awards, Lancope fills in the gaps left by other technologies to provide stronger defenses against today’s sophisticated cyber attacks and complex network performance issues.
“Lancope’s StealthWatch® System is trusted by hundreds of governments and corporations to deliver the situational awareness and incident response capabilities needed to bolster risk posture and network resilience amidst a constantly changing threat landscape,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “We are honored to be recognized for helping both public and private sector organizations achieve the levels of security and performance required to effectively protect our nation.”
Each year, the GSN Homeland Security Awards celebrate the ongoing partnership between the U.S. government and private sector security vendors, whose combined efforts successfully defend the nation from a formidable array of threats. By providing comprehensive, end-to-end visibility across an organization’s entire network, Lancope’s StealthWatch System eliminates dangerous network blind spots and dramatically reduces the time, cost and complexity associated with identifying and troubleshooting issues.
Leveraging NetFlow and other flow data from existing network devices, StealthWatch detects both zero-day attacks that bypass perimeter defenses as well as insider threats such as policy violations, device misconfigurations, data leakage, unauthorized access and network misuse. The system automatically prioritizes the most alarming issues so they can be dealt with first, and includes application and identity awareness to even further expedite troubleshooting.
Featuring one of the fastest flow collectors on the market, StealthWatch is scalable to meet the needs of even the largest networks, analyzing up to 3 million flows per second. Alongside improving risk posture, the system supports other efforts such as forensic investigations and compliance, and keeps networks up and running to ensure the continuity of vital operations.
Lancope’s federal customers include the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Strategic Command, among many others.
