Lancope Announced Tighter Integration With Cisco

Lancope will also join the recently announced Cisco Security Technology Partner Ecosystem and Platform Exchange

ORLANDO, June 25, 2013 – Today at Cisco Live, Cisco's annual IT and communications conference, Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, announced tighter integration with several Cisco® infrastructure solutions to provide governments and enterprises with greater performance and flexibility for network and security monitoring. Lancope will also join the recently announced Cisco Security Technology Partner Ecosystem and Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) to provide customers with advanced security intelligence.

As Lancope deepens its relationship with Cisco, it is reflected in the StealthWatch®System through enhanced and more customizable integration. Lancope will now offer deeper integration with the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), ASR/ISR and ASA to empower users to more closely guard their infrastructure from potential cyber-attacks and performance issues. As a key component of the Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution, StealthWatch helps organizations combat advanced attacks such as APTs, zero-day malware and insider threats.

Collecting and analyzing NetFlow from Cisco infrastructure, StealthWatch fills in the gaps left by conventional security solutions, delivering in-depth visibility into the network interior and advanced security context including virtual, application, identity and mobile awareness. The integration of StealthWatch and Cisco ISE supplies organizations with a complete picture of the potential threat – including the 'who, what, when, where and how' surrounding the incident.

"Lancope has been working closely with Cisco for years to deliver a comprehensive, cost-effective framework for optimum network security and performance," said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. "As our product platforms evolve, we continue to look for additional opportunities to integrate our solutions and provide enhanced capabilities to joint customers. This latest round of integrations increases the amount and types of valuable network and security data available for users to improve incident response, forensics and compliance."

For Cisco ISE users, events are now sent in real time from ISE to the StealthWatch Management Console (SMC) for more instant awareness of user information and much higher scalability – with the ability to now monitor 250,000 active users. StealthWatch can now also consume NAT information from the Cisco ASR 1000 separately from other flow records to allow for more flexibility and customization. This feature is especially beneficial for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that need to capture just the NAT information from flow records in order to comply with the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA).

StealthWatch also supports the new flow update events from Cisco ASA 8.4(5) NSEL. With this feature, StealthWatch can show interface statistics, track how traffic patterns change over the lifetime of a flow, and break down client versus server bytes to be able to perform actions such as detecting whether data was exfiltrated from the network.

As a Registered Developer of network security products in the Cisco Developer Network, Lancope consumes data from a wide range of devices including Cisco ISE, the Catalyst Series, NGA, ASA, ASR/ISR and Nexus platforms. The new Cisco integrations will be available in July as part of StealthWatch System 6.4.
