Lancope NetFlow-Based Monitoring is now HP ArcSight Platform Certified

Lancope has announced that the company’s StealthWatch System is now ArcSight (News - Alert) Certified Common Event Format (CEF) Compliant. This certification allows StealthWatch to work with the HP ArcSight Enterprise Threat and Risk Management platform, the company revealed.

To obtain valuable contextual awareness surrounding specific security events, customers will now be able to stream flow-based event data from StealthWatch directly into their HP ArcSight deployments and correlate it with data from other sources. StealthWatch strengthens overall security posture, enhances network forensics for incident investigation, and supports compliance with industry regulations such as PCI (News - Alert) and HIPAA, apart from helping organizations better detect and thwart even the most sophisticated attacks.

“Today's dynamic technology environment requires a defense-in-depth strategy to comprehensively protect organizations from advanced persistent threats and other sophisticated attacks," said Joe Yeager, director of product management for Lancope. "By augmenting traditional sources of SIEM data with flow-based information from StealthWatch, administrators can see deeper into the network and obtain a more complete picture of network activity. This greatly reduces the cost and complexity of incident resolution and vastly improves security operations.”

To address a wide variety of network and security issues, Lancope's StealthWatch System delivers complete, real-time visibility into all hosts and traffic on the network. Customers can obtain enhanced network visibility and situational awareness for combating the full spectrum of attacks, including advanced persistent threats (APTs), targeting today's enterprises through this interoperability, the company stated in a press release.

Recently, the company announced the availability of the newest version of its monitoring platform, the StealthWatch System 6.1. To keep up with the explosive rise in flow data among today's enterprises, StealthWatch 6.1 includes the StealthWatch FlowCollector 4000, which features massive scalability – up to 120,000 flows per second (fps) per collector. While still fitting into a 2U footprint, the FlowCollector 4000 increases the maximum monitoring capacity of the StealthWatch System to three million fps.
