Lancope To Deliver ‘University of NetFlow’ Educational Seminars in San Francisco and Miami in May
Attendees to gain valuable best practices for leveraging flow data to improve network security and performance
ATLANTA, May 8, 2012 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, will deliver its popular ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars in San Francisco and Miami in May. The free seminars will provide attendees with valuable insight into leveraging NetFlow, IPFIX and other types of flow data to significantly improve network visibility, security and performance.
With the advent of new challenges including virtualization, advanced persistent threats (APTs), IPv6 and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments, comprehensive network visibility is becoming especially critical. For further details on the upcoming seminars, or to register, go to: http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.
“According to Gartner, NetFlow will provide 80 percent of the network visibility required by enterprises moving forward,” said Chris Smithee, network security manager for Lancope. “As the efficacy of conventional network and security tools steadily declines, now is the time to learn how to successfully utilize flow data to maintain high levels of network performance and security.”
Lancope’s StealthWatch® System is used by more than 550 enterprises around the globe. By conducting behavioral analysis on flow data versus relying on signature updates, the system provides a comprehensive view of everything happening across a network. It creates a baseline of normal behavior, detects anomalies and sends alerts to administrators for the full range of threats facing today’s networks – from zero-day attacks to risky internal behaviors. Since flow analysis is based on existing network infrastructure, and flow data is rapidly expanding to cover more and more areas of the network, it is a cost-effective solution for obtaining end-to-end insight across even the largest, most dynamic and distributed environments.
In addition to improving security and performance, flow data can also help with efforts including forensic investigations, capacity planning and compliance. Advanced capabilities from flow monitoring solutions such as StealthWatch, including identity and application awareness, and automatic threat prioritization and mitigation, further extend the value of the data.
The upcoming ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars will take place on May 10 in San Francisco and May 17 in Miami. They will be presented free of charge, and those interested in attending can register at http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.
