StealthWatch Management Console by Lancope Receives Excellent Rating in eWEEK Magazine Review.
ATLANTA -- Review Recognizes Lancope as Leader in Rapidly Growing Network Behavior Anomaly Detection An approach to intrusion detection that establishes a baseline model of behavior for users and components in a computer system or network. Deviations from the baseline cause alerts that direct the attention of human operators to the anomalies. See IDS and anomaly. (NBAD NBAD National Bank of Abu Dhabi

In particular, SMC 4.1 was recognized for its "ability to manage sensors, policies, alerts and reports," which is "a key differentiator in the hotly contested anomaly detection market." Cameron Sturdevant, eWEEK Labs Technical Director, conducted the review, which appeared in the August 23, 2004, issue of eWEEK.

2. In keeping with: according to instructions.
3. Sturdevant, "Behavior anomaly can be among the first signs of a virus outbreak or a DoS (denial-of-service) attack, and the SMC can save IT security managers' time in identifying these problems." He added, "We were impressed with the extent and accuracy of the SMC's reports of anomalous behavior in our network, and we could use the reports to determine quickly when likely security problems were occurring."
Sturdevant applauded SMC's ease-of-use. "We found that Lancope's SMC made creating and distributing policies a painless task." During the review, "the SMC appliance worked without a hitch and should perform well in large-scale deployments."
Sturdevant concluded, "The SMC appliance, and the simultaneous release of its StealthWatch 4.1 system software, makes (Lancope's) network behavior anomaly detection tools far easier to manage than previous StealthWatch versions." Additionally Sturdevant found the 4.1 upgrade to StealthWatch particularly beneficial to network and security administrators. "New in this version of the software is a three-dimensional StatusView that clearly shows the security posture and the health of a network in real time--something earlier versions of the software could not do."
"eWeek confirms the StealthWatch system's ability to shrink the timeframe for gaining a thorough understanding of what is happening on the network as compared to what should be happening," said Harland LaVigne, chairman, president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.

"Armed with this insight, customers can cost-effectively reduce the number of incidents through early discovery and remediation of network risks as well as rapidly identify and resolve incidents that just can't be prevented. eWeek recognizes what is driving our rapidly expanding customer base, which includes Global 2000, government and higher education higher education
