Use the Cisco Stealthwatch Proxy Integration Service to integrate virtually any web proxy with the Cisco Stealthwatch Flow Collector and extend network visibility between internal hosts, across proxy servers, and out to the public Internet and public web services. This end-to-end network visibility spans web proxies, and expands network protection, improves threat detection, and reduces your corporate risk with the granular visibility afforded by the integration service.

Benefits

Obtaining insight into proxy sessions allows customers to improve threat detection and minimize corporate risk, while also enabling quick forensic investigations into command-and-control (C&C) communications across the proxy. It allows for immediate alerting of corporate use policy violations.  

Details

  • Development of tailored integration strategy
  • Installation of the proxy adapter on virtual or physical hosts
  • Configuration of the adaptor and Stealthwatch components to enable ingest of NetFlow
  • Assistance with configuration of the adapter for Syslog ingest
  • Integration of up to four like proxies into Stealthwatch
