The Stealthwatch System now part of Cisco’s Security Solutions. David Goeckeler welcomes Lancope to Cisco Security and explains how Stealthwatch delivers network visibility, a key to Cisco's security strategy. Visit the acquisition announcement site for more details.

Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution

Cybercriminals have become adept at circumventing traditional defenses, exploiting these new attack vectors and persisting inside the network perimeter for months or even years.

Lancope’s Stealthwatch System and Cisco routers and switches transform the network into a sensor to detect sophisticated cyber-attacks anywhere on the network without the high cost of deploying expensive probes. The Sensor concept relies on leveraging Cisco infrastructure devices as a source of telemetry, making it more comprehensive, cost-efficient and scalable than other solutions. Instead of having to implement multiple sensors across the network, the network becomes the sensor, allowing for comprehensive security that can grow and adapt with business needs.

The Network as an Enforcer solution combines Stealthwatch with the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) and TrustSec to transform the network into a powerful enforcer. Through the use of software-defined segmentation, TrustSec enforces access control policies based on user identities and security group tags. Enforcer ensures users are only allowed access to the appropriate network resources regardless of network topology or mobility of the user or device.

Secure Data Center Protects Data on The Move or At Rest

The threat landscape is ever-changing. Large enterprises and government entities are being attacked at an ever increasing rate, and cyber criminals are able to successfully bypass perimeter security and establish a foothold inside the network. In many cases, valuable information resides inside the data center, making it crucial to implement a solution to detect these threats and protect the data center.

By leveraging Flexible NetFlow, the Cyber Threat Defense for the Data Center Solution provides comprehensive visibility into all corners of the network. Analyzing NetFlow with the Stealthwatch Systems permits users to understand traffic within the Data Center for a clearer picture of:

  • Command-and-control activity
  • Network reconnaissance
  • The spread of malware
  • Data loss

By combining enhanced visibility with added identity context from Cisco Identity Services Engine and segmentation information from the Cisco TrustSec solution, security operators are able to better understand data center network traffic and identify malicious activity.
