ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 19 /PRNewswire/ --
WHAT: Are your network security defences up to the job? Networks face increasing threats both from inside the organisation and from the Internet. Conventional perimeter defences can miss insider threats, as well as zero-day attacks. Another approach is needed. Unlike signature-based technologies, Network Behaviour Analysis (NBA) solutions leverage the existing network infrastructure to deliver total network visibility, ensuring network security, performance and availability. This flow-based approach combines network performance monitoring with behaviour-based anomaly detection to cost effectively secure and optimise network operations.
On Thursday, June 21st, InfoSecurity Magazine will host a live webinar on Securing Your Enterprise through Network Visibility. Panelists include executives from Siemens Information Services for the BBC, Cap Gemini and Lancope, who will:
-- Define flow-based anomaly detection and network performance monitoring, and demonstrate how organisations use this approach to cost-effectively secure and monitor internal networks while leveraging existing infrastructures;
-- Describe Network Behaviour Analysis (NBA) and how it provides network visibility and security across the enterprise unlike signature-based ID/PS technologies;
-- Provide expert views from a noted security analyst on how organisations can gain significant economic benefit from an NBA approach; and
-- Explore Siemens/BBC case study to provide insight into real-life deployment of StealthWatch, the most widely used NBA system.
