Lancope Delivers Operational Network Security and Visibility With New Levels Of Advanced Threat Intelligence

StealthWatch System 6.5 includes Operational Network & Security Intelligence (ONSI) dashboard

ATLANTA, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, unveils new, operationalized security capabilities enabling its StealthWatch® System customers to quickly and efficiently track and halt damaging network threats. The new Operational Network & Security Intelligence (ONSI) dashboard and User-defined Threat Criteria feature deliver dynamic and actionable security data to StealthWatch System users, fostering high levels of business continuity.

"With the extraordinary number of threats facing today's enterprises on a daily basis, incident responders do not have the luxury of time on their side," said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. "Security success today necessitates the ability to very quickly identify, interpret and respond to the myriad attacks infiltrating corporate networks. Security is a constant battle, and our new features arm StealthWatch System users with more precise and powerful tools for rapidly uncovering and remediating a broad spectrum of attacks."

Operational Network & Security Intelligence (ONSI) Dashboard With the ONSI dashboard, StealthWatch security alarms are closely aligned to the various steps of the cyber attacker's "kill chain." The StealthWatch System now includes alarms to alert administrators about specific kill chain behaviors happening within their network, such as command-and-control activity, internal malware propagation and data hoarding/exfiltration. By turning data into actionable knowledge, the ONSI dashboard provides greater security context for faster detection, more precise incident response and improved troubleshooting of these stealthy, malicious behaviors.

User-defined Threat Criteria

Similarly, the new User-defined Threat Criteria capability provides another level of context by enabling users to create custom security events and alarms based on their own policies or specific threats to their environment.

StealthWatch System users can now set tailored parameters and exclusions for identifying anomalous behaviors on their network, allowing for a more flexible, collaborative approach to network defense.

The Lancope StealthWatch System collects and analyzes NetFlow, IPFIX and other types of flow data and transforms it into in-depth network insight for vastly improved forensics and incident response. With StealthWatch technology, organizations can very quickly access relevant data, make informed decisions and take the most appropriate actions to mitigate a wide variety of threats. The ONSI dashboard and User-defined Threat Criteria capability will be available in late February as part of StealthWatch System Version 6.5.

To support these new features and to allow for enhanced usability, security analytics and early threat detection, StealthWatch System 6.5 will also include an all-new, intuitive Web interface. Lancope will demonstrate the new version at Booth #3634 (North Expo) during the upcoming RSA Conference 2014 in San Francisco from February 24 - 28. Further details on the StealthWatch System for advanced threat defense can be found at: http://www.lancope.com/solutions/.
