HERNDON, Va., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- NetWitness Corporation, provider of the world's most powerful real-time network security analysis platform, today announced that company experts will be speaking at the upcoming Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA) Technology Council Meeting on December 5-7, 2010, and the Institute for Applied Network Security (IANS) Pacific Information Security Forum on December 6-7, 2010.

At the GTRA Council Meeting, NetWitness will offer U.S. Government IT and information assurance executives detailed case studies illustrating the "offense-in-depth" techniques used successfully by today's advanced adversaries.  Attendees will learn firsthand how many other Federal agencies are using NetWitness to lower risks associated with insider threats, zero day malware, and inappropriate network communications, as well as transform their security teams and architecture to be more agile and responsive to the most sophisticated threats.  The GTRA meeting, to be held at the Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania, brings together executive-level government technology, security, enterprise architecture, green IT and health IT leaders to collaborate, strategize and create innovative solutions.  NetWitness was voted by attendees as "Best Live Demonstration," during the June 2010 Council Meeting.

During the IANS Pacific conference, Nick Lantuh, president of NetWitness, will be speaking on the topic "Monitoring the Enterprise for Advanced Malicious Activity."  Mr. Lantuh's presentation will illustrate the tremendous risk management benefits achieved by enterprises that have deployed NetWitness for pervasive enterprise network recording, analysis and visibility. Using customer case studies, the session will demonstrate techniques that have enabled security teams to leverage NetWitness as a core enterprise sensing and recording platform to obtain both content-aware security alerting and reporting, and innovative, interactive analytics and visibility into a range of critical security requirements and metrics. This includes: insight into complex application attacks, detection of designer and zero-day malware, profiling of user and device network behavior, fusion of tactical network intelligence from around the world, and situational awareness surrounding any activity on the network.  The IANS Pacific Information Security Forum will be held at the Parc55 Hotel in San Francisco, California.
