ATLANTA, January 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Leader in Flow Collection and Analysis to Share Best Practices for Harnessing the Power of NetFlow
Cisco Live London -- Lancope, Inc. (http://www.lancope.com), a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, today announced that it will demonstrate the value of NetFlow(TM) for improving network and security operations at Cisco Live London beginning on January 31, 2011. The company will also showcase the latest applications for NetFlow analysis.
"Despite its high value and widespread support within modern network infrastructure, many organizations fail to take full advantage of NetFlow," said Adam Powers, CTO at Lancope. "Rumors of NetFlow's complexity and high impact on network equipment are no longer relevant, and Lancope continues to dispel these myths through hundreds of successful deployments throughout the world's largest enterprises. Improvements by network infrastructure providers such as Cisco Systems have made today's NetFlow technology easier and more effective than ever before. Organizations that ignore the benefits of network flow data are missing out on an integral IT resource."
NetFlow is a core technology built into many Cisco routers and switches, as well as other compatible devices. The technology automatically and continuously logs all conversations traveling through a NetFlow-enabled router or switch. When leveraged using robust collection and analysis systems such as Lancope's StealthWatch, NetFlow provides a cost-effective means of increasing network visibility for enhanced security posture and improved network performance.
"All of the information required to achieve a high-performance, secure environment is readily available within network flows," said Powers. "The key is knowing how to access and apply the flow data to bring maximum value to the enterprise."
Lancope's StealthWatch is the industry's only unified platform for flow-based security and network performance monitoring across physical and virtual networks. StealthWatch leverages NetFlow and other flow data from existing routers and switches to provide borderless network visibility and actionable insight -- ultimately reducing the time between problem onset and resolution.
The StealthWatch(R) System (http://www.lancope.com/products) is highly scalable to meet the needs of both smaller enterprises and massive corporate networks. Unlike other solutions, StealthWatch captures the full breadth of NetFlow data to bring value to a wide range of groups including security, networking, IT, compliance, human resources and senior management. Easy to configure and utilize, StealthWatch dramatically streamlines operations, decreases downtime and reduces costs.
Lancope will demonstrate the StealthWatch(R) System (http://www.lancope.com/products) and provide education on NetFlow collection and analysis at Cisco Live London, booth E4.
