Lancope has announced tighter integration with several Cisco infrastructure solutions to provide governments and enterprises with greater performance and flexibility for network and security monitoring. The company will also join the recently announced Security Technology Partner Ecosystem and Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) to provide customers with advanced security intelligence. The relationship is reflected in the StealthWatch system through enhanced and more customisable integration. Lancope will now offer deeper integration with the Identity Services Engine (ISE), ASR/ISR and ASA to empower users to more closely guard their infrastructure from potential cyber-attacks and performance issues. StealthWatch helps combat advanced attacks such as APTs, zero-day malware and insider threats. It is claimed to deliver in-depth visibility into the network interior and advanced security context including virtual, application, identity and mobile awareness.
