October 13, 2009

Atlanta, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ — Lancope®, Inc., the provider of the StealthWatch® System, the Best in NetFlow(TM) Analysis (http://www.lancope.com/news/08052008.aspx) and the most widely used network behavior analysis (NBA) solution for unified visibility across physical and virtual networks, today announced a product replacement program for organizations that have deployed Riverbed Cascade (formerly Mazu Networks) technology. The replacement program, which can be customized to meet the needs of client network environments, makes it easy for organizations to replace their existing Cascade appliances with best-of-breed StealthWatch for NetFlow-based network performance monitoring and anomaly detection.

Lancope’s flexible product replacement program was developed in response to Riverbed’s recent “End of Support” announcement for its IBM-based Cascade products, which it acquired from Mazu Networks earlier this year. Rather than contend with discontinued hardware support, costly forklift upgrades and the possibility of re-architecting their network infrastructure, Riverbed Cascade customers can choose Lancope’s StealthWatch as a cost-effective alternative. By replacing Riverbed Cascade with StealthWatch, organizations will gain a stable and committed development environment and predictable expense model as well as benefit from StealthWatch’s leadership in comprehensive network visibility, enhanced network performance monitoring and superior network security.

“Lancope preserves customers’ IT investments by maximizing the value of existing IT infrastructure and delivering the best in NetFlow analysis for network performance monitoring and security,” said Harland LaVigne, president and CEO of Lancope. “Our market leadership and rapidly expanding customer base attest to our long term commitment to the evolving, integrated network performance monitoring and security needs of enterprises. Lancope recognizes that Riverbed’s announcement places its existing Cascade customers in a difficult position, and we are confident that our product replacement program will give organizations the flexibility to migrate seamlessly and painlessly to best-in-class StealthWatch for improved network visibility, performance and security.”
