ATLANTA and CHARLOTTE, N.C. May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ISSA -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, will present at the 8th annual Charlotte Security Summit to be held by the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) on Thursday, May 5. The Lancope presentation "Understanding & Working with NetFlow™" will take place from 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina. It will showcase how organizations can harness the power of NetFlow to increase network visibility, improve incident response, strengthen security efforts and enhance network performance.
"A large part of improving information security lies in user and industry education," said Andy Wilson, Lancope's senior systems engineer and ISSA presenter. "I am honored to join ISSA in its educational efforts and share with attendees the unique capabilities of flow data. When leveraged using robust collection and analysis systems such as Lancope's StealthWatch, NetFlow provides a cost-effective means of increasing network visibility for a significantly enhanced security posture and improved network performance."
Lancope's StealthWatch collects and analyzes NetFlow and other flow data from existing routers and switches to provide comprehensive visibility across physical and virtual networks. Based on behavioral analysis instead of signature updates, StealthWatch uncovers sophisticated, zero-day attacks that often bypass perimeter defenses, and also detects internal threats such as policy violations, network misuse, misconfigurations and data leakage.
Through flow-based monitoring and anomaly detection, StealthWatch delivers the actionable intelligence required to dramatically expedite network troubleshooting. With advanced features including application and identity awareness, and automatic threat prioritization and mitigation, the system also supports forensic investigations and compliance initiatives, while significantly reducing network and security management costs. StealthWatch is scalable to meet the needs of even the largest networks, analyzing up to 1.5 million flows per second.
ISSA is a not-for-profit, international organization that provides education and networking opportunities for information security professionals. The Charlotte ISSA Information Security Summit will bring together IT professionals and industry leaders to share information on emerging technologies, trends and best practices in information security, risk management, audit and compliance.
