Lancope announces integration of StealthWatch System with Cisco Identity Services Engine
Mar 12, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
Lancope Inc, a flow-based security and network performance monitoring company, announced on Monday that its StealthWatch System now integrates with the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE).
Both companies' mutual customers can now expand upon the Cisco identity-aware security framework by obtaining internal monitoring that delivers complete visibility across the core, distribution and access layers of the network. In addition, the StealthWatch platform will access feeds on identity and device data from the Cisco ISE, to help mutual customers with contextual awareness for advanced cyber threats, Lancope said.
According to Lancope, Cisco ISE is a powerful and flexible attribute-based access control solution that enables customised access to corporate resources based on user/endpoint identity. It is a key element of Cisco's SecureX context-based security architecture and the Cisco TrustSec solution for intelligent access control, which enables tight security and consistent policy enforcement. The ISE authenticates and authorises user and device access to corporate resources based on a range of identifying features such as user role, device type, security posture and location.
Lancope's StealthWatch System, sold separately from the Cisco ISE, extends powerful security measures to the internal network by continuously monitoring host behaviour. It collects and analyses unsampled NetFlow and other flow data from Cisco infrastructure, delivering end-to-end situational awareness for network troubleshooting and risk posture.
