Lancope Webinar: Leveraging NetFlow to Combat Today’s Most Prominent Cyber Attacks

December 5, 2011

ATLANTA, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, will host a complimentary webinar on Thursday, December 15, at 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT. Participants will learn about the types of cyber attacks they need to be prepared to address in 2012, and how NetFlow can help improve their security strategy for the new year and beyond. When leveraged effectively, flow data can provide the in-depth, end-to-end network visibility required to dramatically enhance enterprise security posture.

From WikiLeaks to Anonymous and LulzSec, 2011 has been marked by an explosion of high-profile cyber attacks. This steady stream of directed attacks will continue, if not increase, in 2012. Due to the extreme motivation behind many of today’s attacks, enterprises now require a new level of thinking and preparation when it comes to security. Organizations must move away from thinking that technologies that block attacks at the perimeter, or use signatures to detect malware, are enough to keep them safe. Instead, they must turn to technologies that provide visibility into the internal network, uncovering both external attacks that bypass perimeter defenses, as well as dangerous insider activities.

NetFlow and other flow data can protect organizations against the full spectrum of threats facing today’s enterprises, including:

  • Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)
  • Insider threats
  • Industrialized attacks
  • Employee misuse & abuse
  • Fully automated attacks

Join this webinar to learn about today’s most prominent types of attacks based on the risk they currently pose to your organization, as well as how that risk will evolve in 2012:
