Lancope To Deliver 100th ‘University of NetFlow’ Seminar in October, Bringing Training to Four New Cities

September 25, 2012

ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, will present its ‘University of NetFlow’ seminar in four cities in October – Raleigh, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Tampa – marking the delivery of its 100(th) seminar. Over the past several years, Lancope has delivered complimentary seminars throughout North America to teach attendees how to maximize the use of NetFlow, IPFIX and other flow data across their infrastructure. To learn more about the complimentary seminars, or to register, go to http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.

“User education has always been very important to our organization,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “With new threats and challenges always on the horizon, it is critical that IT professionals stay up-to-date on the latest network trends and technologies. Lancope is proud to have delivered nearly 100 NetFlow seminars free of charge to help organizations gain the network visibility needed to vastly improve their infrastructure and security measures.”

In light of the recent rise in insider attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs), organizations are finding that conventional security solutions are no longer enough to keep their networks and businesses safe. Often relying on signature updates, or only blocking attacks at the perimeter, traditional defenses are ineffective against threats that originate from within the network or that use advanced tactics like spear phishing and zero-day exploits. Today’s security organizations have to assume that some attacks will make their way into the network, and must be able to see what is going on internally in order to combat them.

When leveraged to its full potential, flow data can provide unparalleled levels of network visibility and threat intelligence for optimized security and performance. By collecting and analyzing flow data from existing infrastructure using advanced technologies like Lancope’s StealthWatch(®) System, organizations can conduct continuous, cost-effective monitoring of their internal network to detect anomalies that could signify risks.

Through sophisticated behavioral analysis, StealthWatch can detect both internal and external threats, including zero-day attacks and APTs, as well as potential performance issues, enabling swift, efficient mitigation. In addition to detecting risks in real time, StealthWatch can also dramatically improve other IT efforts including forensic investigations, performance optimization, capacity planning and compliance. Advanced capabilities including virtual, application, identity and mobile awareness further enhance both security and network operations.

Dates for the October ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars include:

Attendees will learn both basic and advanced concepts pertaining to the use of NetFlow for network security and performance. To register for a seminar, please visit http://www.lancope.com/news-events/university-of-netflow/.

In addition to ‘University of NetFlow’ seminars, Lancope also delivers complimentary, monthly webinars which are open to everyone and cover top network and security trends. StealthWatch customers also have access to advanced training courses.
