LONDON (UK): Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, has released the latest version of its StealthWatch® flow-based monitoring system to enable faster, more effective threat detection and incident response. With StealthWatch 6.4, customers can obtain new levels of insight into network and user activity to improve operations and fend off today’s ever-evolving list of advanced attacks.

“The online threats facing governments and enterprises continue to grow – with DDoS, APTs, advanced malware and insider threats all wreaking havoc on corporate networks,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “With StealthWatch 6.4, we have added several powerful capabilities that provide organisations with enhanced visibility and control over their networks. In particular, our new user-centric monitoring functionality is invaluable for combating insider threats, as well as for improving incident response, forensics and compliance.”

User-Centric Monitoring

StealthWatch 6.4 boasts new, user-centric monitoring workflows that enable network and security teams to run flow queries and reports based on actual user names versus just IP addresses. Administrators can search on user names, as well as obtain a report outlining a specific person’s network activity – including any anomalous behavior or alarms triggered.

“Diminished IT control over recent years is leading to network grey areas and blind spots,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “It’s hard to increase the effectiveness of information security when security analysts have an incomplete understanding of what’s going on. Solutions like StealthWatch, combining continuous security monitoring with advanced user identity tracking, are becoming increasingly important for quickly identifying and addressing a wide range of anomalies and threats on the network.”
