Lancope Introduces StealthWatch FlowSensor 4000

Appliance provides new levels of network visibility and security for defending the world’s largest networks from advanced attacks.

Atlanta, May 13, 2014 Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, unveils the new StealthWatch® FlowSensor 4000, delivering massive scalability for service providers and enterprise data centers. Substantially increasing the throughput for the FlowSensor appliance, the 4000 model provides greater visibility and security for large, complex networks, playing a key role in early detection of security incidents, more precise incident response, and better troubleshooting of network and application performance problems. The new appliance is scalable to up to 20 gigabits of sustained bandwidth based on the customer’s environment, application mix and packet sizes.

“Some of the world’s largest and most respected companies have recently fallen victim to stealthy cyber-attacks, making pervasive network visibility critical for even the most seemingly impenetrable networks,” said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. “Obtaining in-depth, application-level visibility has become a crucial component of network protection, and is especially critical for service providers that have millions of customers depending on them for reliable network availability and strong security. We are excited to further scale our FlowSensor offering so that it can be leveraged by virtually any organization out there – no matter how big, complex or dynamic.”

By exporting valuable flow data enriched with application details, the FlowSensor helps the StealthWatch System deliver the comprehensive visibility and actionable intelligence needed to identify a wide range of issues across high-speed data centers – from security threats to performance slowdowns and compliance violations. The FlowSensor 4000 enables service providers to more easily scale the advanced threat detection capabilities of the StealthWatch System across their entire network to protect both internal and customer environments.

With the StealthWatch System, service providers can:

·         Protect customer networks from damaging DDoS attacks

·         Pinpoint anomalous network behavior down to the exact customer and application

·         Quickly detect security threats such as botnets and APTs infiltrating customer networks

·         Improve network availability and performance

·         Deliver managed services differentiated by industry-leading network security

 

“The complex and fast-growing nature of today’s network environments, combined with the ever-changing threat landscape, means that organizations should be monitoring their data centers on a 24/7 basis for any potential performance and security issues,” said Jim Frey, vice president of research, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “Whether the setting is enterprise or service provider, use of high capacity flow instrumentation and analysis solutions such as Lancope’s StealthWatch System represents a practical and effective strategy for addressing both security and performance objectives.”

Lancope’s StealthWatch System collects and analyzes NetFlow and other flow data from existing infrastructure to deliver enhanced network behavior and security analytics for dramatically improved network forensics and incident response. The FlowSensor 4000 model is currently available with entry-level system pricing beginning at U.S. domestic $279,000.
