ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, has announced that it is showcasing its StealthWatch® System on October 16 at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2011 in Orlando, Fla. By leveraging NetFlow and other flow data from existing infrastructure, Lancope's StealthWatch System enables enterprises to dramatically improve network visibility, performance and security at a fraction of the cost of traditional monitoring solutions.
Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2011 is the industry's largest and most important annual gathering of CIOs and senior IT leaders. "As enterprise networks continue to grow in complexity, and organizations are faced with increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, flow-based monitoring is quickly emerging as a must-have technology for obtaining end-to-end network visibility," said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. "This event provides us with a valuable opportunity to share the unique capabilities of StealthWatch for maintaining effective levels of security and performance with a high-level audience."
By harnessing the power of flow data, StealthWatch delivers complete, real-time visibility into all hosts and traffic on the network to address a wide variety of network and security issues. The system seamlessly integrates security, network and application performance monitoring to uncover both zero-day attacks that bypass perimeter defenses, as well as insider threats such as policy violations and data leakage. Advanced features including identity awareness, and automatic threat prioritization and mitigation, dramatically expedite troubleshooting and also support other efforts such as forensic investigations and compliance.
Providing a comprehensive view of what is going on in the network at any given time, StealthWatch addresses increasing demands being placed on corporate infrastructure due to trends including IT consumerization, user mobility, cloud computing, live telepresence and streaming video. The system is scalable to meet the needs of even the largest networks, analyzing up to 3 million flows per second, and can also monitor and protect virtual environments.
