Lancope has revealed that it will continuously monitor network traffic by leveraging NetFlow from the conference network infrastructure for the upcoming Cisco Live, an education and training event for IT, networking and communications professionals.
“NetFlow provides a very powerful and cost-effective means of seeing exactly what is going on within a network at any given time,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope.
Calling NetFlow an “extremely useful” and “underused tool” for maintaining and troubleshooting enterprise networks, Steve McOwen, director of information security at Cisco (News - Alert) Systems, said that Lancope captures the full power of NetFlow without requiring extensive time or resources from IT teams.
StealthWatch provides comprehensive application performance monitoring capabilities across a wide range of Cisco routers and switches -- including the Catalyst 3000, 4000 and 6000 Series Switches -- and the ASA firewall. Company officials said that it provides “unprecedented” visibility into network traffic to vastly improve both performance and security.
A versatile tool for monitoring and responding to a wide variety of incidents, StealthWatch comes with in-depth flow data, application analysis and an easy-to-understand, graphical user interface. Company officials said that it delivers unified security, network and application performance monitoring across physical and virtual environments.
Company officials said that via a single platform, StealthWatch eliminates network blind spots, cuts network and security management costs, and dramatically reduces the time from problem onset to resolution.
Cisco Live is the industry's premier as well as Cisco's largest educational and training event of the year. In 2010, the event brought together 12,700 technology professionals and innovators.
Lancope is a provider of flow-based monitoring solutions to ensure high-performing and secure networks for global enterprises. Recently, the company won the Info Security Products Guide 2011 Best Deployment Scenario Award.
