What We Do

Lancope's market-leading StealthWatch® family of appliances combines anomaly detection and flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring to deliver end-to-end visibility via a single, highly integrated enterprise platform. By delivering unified visibility across physical and virtual networks, StealthWatch eliminates network blind spots and reduces total network and security management costs.

How We Do It

StealthWatch's flow-based approach and three-tiered architecture create an instant, active surveillance system that operates easily on high speed, highly segmented or highly meshed networks – at a fraction of the cost of alternative point products. By leveraging packet capture and flow telemetry (NetFlow, sFlow, cFlow, jFlow, etc.) from your existing routers and switches or by generating flow records from the virtual network, StealthWatch analyzes flow data to deliver the enterprise-wide network visibility, ease-of-use, in-depth intelligence and powerful, enterprise-class functionality that network engineers, network planners and security teams need to operate with maximum efficiency.

Problems We Solve

StealthWatch saves organizations time and money by reducing the resources required to optimize network and security operations. StealthWatch's unique flow-based approach removes the communications bottlenecks that frequently cripple businesses struggling to identify network and security incidents, and then generate the appropriate action. This real-time visibility into what is happening on a network helps network, security and IT administrators: anticipate and respond to changing demands for network resources; quickly troubleshoot network incidents; perform root cause analysis in seconds; respond to threats that bypass less capable security solutions; and secure, troubleshoot and account for virtual machines across the virtual network. Our scalable, enterprise deployment gives you the contextual network intelligence you need to make fast and accurate decisions.

Why We Are Different

StealthWatch unifies flow-based network performance and security monitoring to deliver unified visibility across physical and virtual networks. The result is significantly improved network performance and security as well as dramatically reduced deployment and operating costs. Enterprises rely on StealthWatch to reduce the time, cost and complexity of troubleshooting the network. StealthWatch customers optimize network operations, improve application performance, ensure host integrity and prevent internal attacks and misuse – at one-fifteenth the cost of conventional technologies.
