Lancope Joins Forces with Team Cymru to Deliver Advanced Threat Intelligence
ATLANTA, Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, is joining forces with leading Internet security research organization, Team Cymru, Inc., to incorporate advanced research on today’s top cyber threats into its StealthWatch(®) System. Lancope customers will benefit from the combination of Lancope’s advanced network behavioral analysis and Team Cymru’s cutting-edge global threat intelligence.
“The current state of network security calls for defense-in-depth strategies that leverage today’s leading security experts and technologies,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “Team Cymru’s real-time cyber threat intelligence compiled in an integrated, normalized form is an excellent complement to Lancope’s sophisticated behavioral analysis and flow-based network visibility, resulting in even stronger security postures for Lancope customers.”
Today’s threat landscape has rendered point solutions such as antivirus, firewalls and IDS/IPS far less effective. In order to remain ahead in the cybercrime arms race, organizations must now obtain end-to-end situational awareness into everything happening across their networks. By collecting and analyzing NetFlow, IPFIX and other flow data from existing infrastructure, Lancope’s StealthWatch System provides a comprehensive picture of network activity for combating a robust range of network security and performance issues – including zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs).
Since 1998, Team Cymru has been conducting in-depth research into criminal command-and-control infrastructure, providing insight on emerging botnet, malware and phishing attacks from around the world. The company’s superior knowledge of known bad hosts on the Internet and reputation reports will further enhance Lancope’s early threat detection capabilities, preventing cyber-attacks from wreaking havoc on corporate and government networks.
Lancope’s StealthWatch System is scalable to up to 120,000 flows per second (fps) per collector, or 3 million fps total, to meet the needs of even the largest networks, and can easily be extended to protect next-generation environments including 10 Gbps, MPLS, virtualized and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) networks. Through StealthWatch, a wide range of network and security intelligence is collected, analyzed and delivered via a single platform without the need to consult various point solutions to obtain situational awareness across the entire network.
Advanced capabilities including application and identity awareness, as well as automated threat prioritization and mitigation, further expedite troubleshooting and decrease the time from problem onset to resolution. In-depth network visibility and advanced cyber threat intelligence can also assist with other efforts including forensic investigations, compliance and performance optimization.
