Khipu Networks has partnered with Lancope Inc. since 2006 and has deployed and supported its technology across a range of market sectors. Lancope uses a variety of techniques to identify threats or suspicious activity inside your network.
Advanced Persistent Threats
Highly targeted, sophisticated attacks evade security defense, pivot stealthily throughout the network and steal confidential data. StealthWatch can detect the various steps of advanced attacks including:
- Network Reconnaissance
- Internal Pivoting
- 0-day Malware
- Botnet (CnC) Communications
- Data Exfiltration
Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS)
Network and Services availability are critical for any business or government today. DDoS attacks have become increasingly prominent, and the size of the attacks keeps growing. StealthWatch identifies DDoS attack sources before they cause costly services outages.
The use of malware continues to become more sophisticated, covert and nefarious. StealthWatch can detect the full spectrum of worms, viruses and botnets, including 0-day threats that eveade traditional defenses, whether they come in through the perimeter, from mobile devices, or on USB keys.
Perimeter defenses are powerless to stop attacks launched by malicious insiders. StealthWatch detects suspicious user activates (e.g. attempts to sabotage the company or steal confidential information) and preserves records of internal network traffic.
