Botnet (CnC) Detection

Detect Botnets Before They Wreak Havoc

If your enterprise is connected to the Internet, then you are the target of a bot-driven attack. It is not a question of if or when you'll be compromised — it's a question of how bad the problem already is, and how soon before your staff can identify or minimize the damage. Unlike widespread attacks, targeted botnet attacks are very stealthy in nature and are difficult to detect using traditional security solutions. However, despite their quiet nature, they can cause very expensive, sometimes irreparable damage to an organization.

Through advanced behavioral analysis, Lancope's StealthWatch System can detect the command-and-control (CnC) communications between botnet attackers and compromised hosts within the network. This way, botnets can be quickly contained before they wreak havoc on network assets or performance, or even ruin a company’s reputation or financial health. This innovative approach is cost-effective and enables fast, effective remediation of this especially damaging attack method.
