LOC-AID Wins CTIA Wireless Big Idea Contest for Mobile Location PrivacyInfrastructure optimization distributor to offer Lancope's StealthWatch in Australia and New Zealand

ATLANTA, GA & SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – November 7, 2011Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, has partnered with Digital Networks Australia (DNA) to expand the reach of its StealthWatch® System in Australia and New Zealand. As a value added distributor of infrastructure optimization solutions, DNA provides its reseller channel high touch support to offer networking professionals the best-of-breed tools they need to seamlessly meet connectivity and SLA requirements. For more than 15 years, DNA’s solutions have enabled customers to extract more value from their existing network and data communication investments.

“With visibility into the network core being a key focus for us, Lancope’s StealthWatch System is a perfect fit for our portfolio,” said Munsoor Khan, director of DNA. “By leveraging NetFlow and other flow data from existing network devices, StealthWatch provides a cost-effective, easy-to-manage means of achieving unprecedented visibility for vastly improved network and security operations.”

Lancope’s StealthWatch System fully utilizes the power of NetFlow and is the only flow analysis solution to provide unified security, network and application performance monitoring for both physical and virtual infrastructures. StealthWatch is the most advanced and widely deployed solution that combines behavior-based network performance and security monitoring with application and identity awareness to reduce the time, cost and complexity of troubleshooting, managing and securing IP networks. Not relying on signature updates, StealthWatch detects both zero-day attacks that bypass perimeter defenses, as well as insider threats such as network misuse, policy violations, data leakage and device misconfigurations.

StealthWatch is scalable to meet the needs of even the largest networks, analyzing up to 3 million flows per second. Advanced features including automatic threat prioritization and mitigation further expedite troubleshooting and also make the system ideal for supporting forensic investigations and compliance initiatives.

DNA has achieved full partner accreditation status with Lancope by completing its partner certification training program. As a result, the company will now be able to offer its customers comprehensive, flow-based visibility at a device, network and application level, providing an effective means of baselining network traffic to quickly identify anomalies that signify risk.

“Today’s complex technology environment calls for a more comprehensive means of determining exactly what is going on within enterprise networks to ensure high levels of performance and security,” said Steve Simpson, director of international sales and operations for Lancope. “As a company that holds a deep understanding of the network issues faced by today’s corporations, DNA is an ideal partner for helping us spread the unique benefits of StealthWatch to additional organizations.”
