ATLANTA, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, has been selected as the Gold winner in the "forensics" category of the 2014 Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards. Through the collection and in-depth analysis of flow data from existing infrastructure, Lancope's innovative StealthWatch System continues to garner industry accolades for its delivery of advanced network forensics.
"With the ability to store large quantities of NetFlow and other types of flow data for an extended period of time, the StealthWatch System makes it feasible for enterprises to maintain comprehensive audit trails of network activity to significantly strengthen forensic investigations," said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. "The StealthWatch System was designed to deliver robust, actionable threat intelligence from both a real-time and historical perspective, and we are excited to see increased recognition for the role our technology plays in keeping networks around the world secure."
The StealthWatch System combines continuous security monitoring with advanced threat intelligence to serve as the "eyes and ears" of the network. Hundreds of organizations around the globe leverage the StealthWatch System to regain the visibility and control that can often be lost amidst an ever-changing threat landscape and constantly evolving network infrastructures.
The comprehensive network insight provided by the StealthWatch System dramatically improves real-time threat detection, incident response and network forensics. By automatically detecting and alerting on suspicious behavior, StealthWatch technology reduces the need for time-consuming and resource-intensive manual investigations. The system enables security teams to swiftly mitigate a wide variety of cyber-attacks including zero-day malware, DDoS, insider threats and APTs, and to thoroughly understand and prevent future attacks.
According to a large enterprise financial services company, "Lancope has allowed us for the first time to truly have visibility of what's happening within our internal networks and see suspicious traffic as it develops, but it really excels with the integration of identity systems to provide second to none historical forensic data."
