Atlanta, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., the leader in NetFlow™ collection and analysis and the provider of the StealthWatch® System for flow-based network performance and security monitoring, today announced that it will host a Webinar case study titled "How Central Michigan University Improves Network Visibility, Performance and Security Using StealthWatch." Ryan Laus, network manager for Central Michigan University (CMU) – one of the 100 largest public universities nationally – will discuss how he uses StealthWatch to increase network visibility, enhance network security and improve network performance across CMU's massive 16,000-node network.
Each year, CMU experiences 25 percent increase in the number of mobile devices on its network. The proliferation of mobile users and movement toward IT consumerization results in a growing demand for wireless support on this already wide open network. CMU's network and security teams required greater visibility of internal and external traffic and a faster way to elevate security concerns from a vast number of flows. By analyzing NetFlow from CMU's Cisco network to deliver real time visibility across physical and virtual networks, StealthWatch eliminates network blind spots and reduces total network and security management costs.
Join Lancope and CMU for this complimentary Webinar to discover how administrators can use NetFlow analysis to gain enterprise-wide visibility into all host behaviors and activity on the network without signature updates or ongoing tuning.
