ATLANTA, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, will host a complimentary webinar with Cisco Systems Wednesday, August 17, 2011, 11:00 a.m. ET/8:00 a.m. PT. The webinar will focus on how organizations can leverage newly enhanced NetFlow support from the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engine 2T (Cat6K Sup2T) using Lancope's StealthWatch® FlowCollector 4000.

By combining technologies from Lancope and Cisco, organizations can obtain comprehensive, end-to-end network visibility and forensic intelligence to quickly and efficiently troubleshoot a wide range of network performance and security issues. The StealthWatch FlowCollector 4000 is one of the fastest flow collectors on the market, monitoring up to 120,000 flows per second (fps) per collector.

"With the Supervisor Engine 2T, the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series can now export extraordinarily large volumes of flow data," said Adam Powers, CTO at Lancope. "While many flow collectors on the market would be overwhelmed by this amount of data, the FlowCollector 4000 seamlessly scales to collect and analyze all of this flow data to deliver actionable network intelligence to IT administrators."

Not relying on signature updates, StealthWatch fills in the gaps between other technologies to uncover not only the sophisticated, zero-day attacks that bypass perimeter defenses, but also internal threats. The system eliminates network blind spots, cuts network and security management costs and expedites troubleshooting across both physical and virtual environments. StealthWatch can collect and analyze flow data from a wide variety of Cisco devices including the Catalyst 3000, 4000 and 6000 Series, as well as the ASA 5500 Series. The system is scalable to meet the needs of even the largest enterprises, analyzing up to three million fps.
