Flow-based StealthWatch for FISMA/NIST Compliance

The federal government is under immense pressure to maintain secure, reliable networks in light of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and NIST Special Publications 800-153 and 800-137 provide a comprehensive framework for ensuring the effectiveness of information security controls over resources that support federal operations and assets. Without in-depth visibility and actionable intelligence into what is going on in their networks, it is very difficult for federal agencies to achieve compliance with these regulations. After all, you cannot protect what you cannot see.

Lancope’s StealthWatch System unifies flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring to deliver end-to-end visibility across physical and virtual networks. With StealthWatch, federal agencies can baseline and inventory network assets, uncover and remediate security deficiencies and continuously monitor and report on issues to maintain a strong security posture and comply with federal regulations. Demonstrating compliance is typically an arduous task requiring hours of manual report compilation. With StealthWatch, federal agencies can greatly simplify compliance processes, maintaining effective security levels on an ongoing basis without expending excessive amounts of time and resources.
