ATLANTA, Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS11 Conference -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, will present today at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in Orlando, Fla. Lancope Chief Technology Officer Adam Powers will discuss how healthcare organizations can use NetFlow™ to achieve greater security, network and application performance, as well as confidently demonstrate compliance with HIPAA regulations.
By collecting and analyzing NetFlow from existing routers and switches, Lancope's StealthWatch system delivers comprehensive network visibility across physical and virtual environments, dramatically reducing the time between problem onset and resolution. In addition to enhancing performance and security to support around-the-clock patient care, StealthWatch helps healthcare organizations comply with HIPAA regulations through constant monitoring and advanced features including application and identity awareness.
Healthcare organizations currently comprise 15 percent of Lancope's customer base. Lancope healthcare customers include BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, Concord Hospital, Cancer Research UK, Aurora Health Care, the Puget Sound Blood Center and Children's Hospital and Health System in Wisconsin.
Here is what some of these customers say about StealthWatch:
"Before StealthWatch, we manually analyzed and correlated our network activity data," said Sharon Black, chief information security officer (CISO) for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee. "StealthWatch automatically gives us detailed network insight through a single, easy-to-use interface, aiding our security, network operations and compliance efforts."
"Through StealthWatch, we can quickly and cost-effectively troubleshoot even the most complex network and security issues," said Mark Starry, director of enterprise architecture and security at Concord Hospital. "StealthWatch enables us to easily determine whether issues are caused by the network itself or by a specific application, as well as pinpoint exactly which application and user are responsible."
"Before StealthWatch, our IT team was frustrated by lengthy problem resolution, a lack of audit trails and the inability to monitor user activity for HIPAA compliance," said Peggy Dunn, IT director for the Puget Sound Blood Center (PSBC). "Identifying and solving network problems quickly is critical to our patient care. Moreover, StealthWatch has also benefited PSBC in other ways—from increased user accountability to improved cross-team collaboration between helpdesk, network services and developers." StealthWatch has also enabled PSBC to retain the $22,680 it was previously losing for each hour of downtime.
By combining network and security capabilities into a single, unified platform and leveraging an organization's existing infrastructure, StealthWatch eliminates network blind spots and decreases the time, cost and complexity associated with troubleshooting network problems.
Lancope's HIMSS presentation will take place today from 1:30 – 2:15 pm in Hall A at Privacy & Security Booth #231 in the Orange County Convention Center. For more information on Lancope solutions for healthcare organizations, please visit: http://www.lancope.com/industries/healthcare.
