StealthWatch Monitors and Protects Transportation Networks
Due to the criticality of transportation systems for everyday life around the globe, high network availability and strong security posture are paramount for carriers. In this industry, a single cyber attack or mere minutes of network downtime could result in widespread scheduling disasters at best, and at worst, put passengers in physical danger. Because of these dire consequences, transportation carriers are a prime target for cyber terrorism and cyber warfare, calling for extra vigilance when managing and securing their networks. In addition to addressing these concerns, transportation providers must also be sure to maintain the confidentiality and security of passenger information and comply with industry regulations such as PCI.
Lancope's StealthWatch System unifies security, network and application performance monitoring across physical and virtual networks to dramatically reduce the time from problem onset to resolution. By leveraging NetFlow™ and other flow data from existing routers and switches, StealthWatch provides a cost-effective means of achieving the comprehensive, in-depth network visibility needed to significantly improve network and application performance, enhance security and demonstrate compliance.
AirTran Airways has implemented StealthWatch to improve its risk posture and PCI compliance initiatives while still supporting the efficient operations of its agile business units.
With StealthWatch, AirTran Airways can see specifically what is going on in the network in real time, as well as who is doing it, to make sure that employees are not conducting activities that go against network and security policies and put the enterprise at risk.
