Foundry Networks Uses Lancope's StealthWatch

Lancope announced that Foundry Networks has deployed its StealthWatch System

ATLANTA -- Lancope, Inc., the provider of the StealthWatch™ System, the most widely used Network Behavior Analysis (NBA) and response solution, today announced that Foundry Networks, Inc., a performance and total solutions leader for end-to-end switching and routing, has deployed the StealthWatch System to transform sFlow from Foundry’s routers and switches into actionable network intelligence to optimize security and network operations.

Unifying flow-based anomaly detection and network performance monitoring, StealthWatch provides detailed views of anomalies and network utilization to benefit Foundry’s security analysts, network engineers and network planners. Before deploying StealthWatch, Foundry already possessed networking expertise and high quality equipment, but its IT resources had the arduous and time-consuming task of reviewing log files to identify and remediate security and performance problems across its large, complex network. Foundry deployed StealthWatch to streamline network optimization and security into one process, without taxing internal resources or the network itself.

“With StealthWatch in place, we’ve been able to reduce the time required for problem resolution from four or five hours down to just one hour,” said Andy Rafeedie, director of IT infrastructure at Foundry Networks. “StealthWatch has brought us several compliance-related benefits as well. We use the advanced user identity tracking to monitor which users are dialing into particular servers and which users are making large data transfers. StealthWatch also enables us to identify, track and report on end users responsible for suspicious activity, including the files they accessed and when they gained access.”
