Lancope To Present Ponemon Research on Incident Response and Showcase Next-Generation Security Solutions at RSA Conference 2014

Company to share best practices and innovative technologies for dramatically improved threat detection, network forensics and incident response

ATLANTA, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA CONFERENCE -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, will share industry best practices and showcase next-generation technology for combating advanced threats at RSA Conference 2014 taking place this week in San Francisco, CA. Through several speaker presentations, and a strong presence on the show floor, Lancope will educate RSA Conference attendees on how to improve their threat detection, network forensics and incident response efforts to better defend their networks from the vast array of cyber-attacks targeting  today's enterprises.

On Wednesday, February 26, Lancope Director of Security Research Tom Cross will join Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute, as well as panelists from General Motors, Viewpost and The Chertoff Group, to present the findings of a recent Ponemon Institute study on incident response. During the panel, "Why Cyber Incident Response Teams Get No Respect," Cross and the others will share their insights into why many of today's organizations are not as prepared as they should be to fend off advanced attacks, and why CEOs are in the dark about cyber-attacks facing their companies. The panelists will also share best practices for building a strong Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) with the executive support and respect it needs to succeed.

Lancope CTO Tim "TK" Keanini will also present a session at the RSA Conference on Tuesday, February 25 entitled, "OODA Loop as an Advanced Persistent Defense." During the session, Keanini will illustrate how military strategist John Boyd's OODA Loop (a concept originally applied to combat operations) can be leveraged to improve cyber security and develop an "advanced persistent defense" for thwarting sophisticated, targeted attacks.

"As cyber-attacks continue to escalate and affect a rapidly growing number of organizations, now is the time for security teams and C-level executives alike to reevaluate their network protection strategies," said Keanini. "The conventional reliance on perimeter- and signature-based defenses is no longer working. Lancope prides itself on innovation, and we look forward to sharing our forward-thinking security technologies, research and strategies with our peers at the RSA Conference."

In addition to presenting two sessions, Lancope will also exhibit its new StealthWatch® System Version 6.5 as well as showcase its solutions for retail security breach detection and network forensics at RSA Conference Booth #3634 (North Expo). Lancope and the StealthWatch System will also have a presence at the RSA Conference booths of several partner organizations, including Cisco, Radware, Emulex and Ixia.

Lancope's StealthWatch System Version 6.5 includes an intuitive Web interface and sophisticated alarming capabilities for enhanced usability, security analytics and early threat detection. Specific new features include the following:

  • The Operational Network & Security Intelligence (ONSI) dashboard keeps track of the attacker's "kill chain," providing StealthWatch System administrators with awareness of how far attacks are progressing within their networks.
  • New "data hoarding" alarms detect attackers who are moving stolen data around within internal networks or preparing it for exfiltration. This functionality is especially beneficial for industries such as government, healthcare and retail that store large quantities of sensitive information.
  • StealthWatch Labs Security Updates provide constantly updated, automated security capabilities in the StealthWatch System to detect the latest threats.
  • User-defined Threat Criteria enable StealthWatch System administrators to monitor their networks for targeted attack activity based on specific threat intelligence.

"Recent attacks against retail establishments are a reminder that organizations need to be able to detect each step that attackers go through when they break in and steal data," said Lancope's Tom Cross. "Any organization with sensitive information on its internal network should have visibility into what is happening on the network and the ability to detect when data is on the move. The new features in StealthWatch System 6.5 provide visibility into all stages of a targeted attack scenario and shed light on aspects of attacker behavior that other security technologies miss – such as the staging of data for exfiltration."

By leveraging NetFlow, IPFIX and other flow data from existing infrastructure, the StealthWatch System cost-effectively turns the entire network into a sensor grid for detecting anomalous traffic and behaviors. The new 6.5 platform provides an extremely adaptive and responsive system that combines enhanced security intelligence with simplified, streamlined delivery.
