ATLANTA, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, has been selected as the winner in the "Most Innovative Forensics for 2014" category of Cyber Defense Magazine's first annual InfoSec Technologies Awards. Through unique, behavioral-based security monitoring, Lancope's StealthWatch System delivers a comprehensive audit trail of network activity for faster, more precise threat detection and forensic investigations.
"Being able to see exactly what went on in your network both before and after an attack has become a crucial piece of today's cyber security puzzle," said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. "Today, it is no longer realistic to think that an organization can prevent all attacks. It is great to see publications like Cyber Defense Magazine recognizing the criticality of technologies like the StealthWatch System that can rewind the clock on your network and provide both the real-time and historical data necessary to investigate, thwart and prevent future attacks."
The StealthWatch System cost-effectively collects, analyzes and stores large amounts of NetFlow and other flow data for months or even years. The system then turns this data into actionable intelligence for detecting anomalous traffic inside the network. Detailed flow records can be used to detect the various phases of sophisticated, targeted attacks, as well as determine the scope and timeline of successful breaches – including who was responsible, how the attack was launched, and what infected machines did after they were compromised.
StealthWatch technology uniquely leverages existing infrastructure to turn the entire network into a sensor grid for uncovering malicious threat actors, reducing the need for time-consuming and resource-intensive manual investigations. More than 600 organizations around the world – including healthcare, financial services, government, retail, service provider and higher education institutions – rely on StealthWatch to keep their networks secure. According to a survey of Lancope customers conducted by independent, third-party research organization, TechValidate, 83 percent of surveyed organizations rated the StealthWatch System effective at accelerating incident response and forensics.
Cyber Defense Magazine's first annual InfoSec Technologies Awards were presented last week during the RSA Conference in San Francisco. Further details on Lancope's award can be found here.
