New StealthWatch 6.0 with application-level analysis garners positive feedback from Cisco and other beta users

LONDON and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, February 7, 2011 - Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security, network and application
performance monitoring, unveiled the next generation of its powerful
StealthWatch System
Leveraging NetFlow(TM) and other flow data to deliver end-to-end network
visibility and greater forensic intelligence, StealthWatch 6.0 addresses
challenges introduced by key business trends, including globalisation, user
mobility and IT consumerisation. The new version drastically reduces the time
from problem onset to resolution.

Several high-profile Lancope customers, including Cisco Systems, Grafisch
Lyceum Rotterdam (GLR) and Concord Hospital, have conducted successful beta
trials of StealthWatch 6.0.

"NetFlow is an extremely useful and underused tool for maintaining and
troubleshooting enterprise networks," said Steve McOwen, Cisco Systems'
director of information security. "Lancope captures the full power of NetFlow
without requiring extensive time or resources from IT teams. In-depth flow
data, application analysis and an easy-to-understand, graphical user
interface make StealthWatch 6.0 a versatile tool for monitoring and
responding to a wide variety of incidents."

Key capabilities in StealthWatch 6.0 include:

    - Application performance monitoring via behavioral analysis and deep
      packet inspection of flow data to ensure application delivery on time
      and uninterrupted
    - Relational flow mapping to provide real-time, graphical views of
      network traffic for specific segments of the network
    - Grouping of related hosts to analyse the traffic between them and
      quickly detect anomalies and assess performance
    - Advanced reporting capabilities enabling users to retrieve the exact
      and detailed information they need and simplifying the creation of
      high-level reports for management

"StealthWatch 6.0 is intuitive," said Mark Pleunes, network manager at
Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam. "With the new relational flow mapping, we can
create a map that displays both bandwidth usage and alarms per host group in
a matter of minutes. This clear view quickly enables us to pinpoint network
and security issues."

StealthWatch meets the needs of large networks and enterprises, analysing
up to 1.5 million flows per second. By combining network and security
capabilities into a single, unified platform and leveraging an organisation's
existing infrastructure, the system eliminates network blind spots and
reduces the time, cost and complexity associated with troubleshooting network
problems. The sophisticated data and behavioral baselining provided by
StealthWatch supports other key functions including compliance, help desk,
resource allocation, capacity planning and change management.

"As enterprise networks continue to grow in complexity, administrators
require innovative solutions for handling the influx of new applications and
consequent rise in traffic volumes," said Jim Frey, managing research
director at Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. "Solutions such as
Lancope's StealthWatch can significantly improve both network operations and
security postures by combining security, network and application performance
monitoring and troubleshooting into a single, integrated platform."

"StealthWatch dramatically streamlines the network troubleshooting
workflow while decreasing costs and downtime," said Mike Potts, president and
CEO of Lancope. "The latest version extends the value of the system to
address evolving business and technology trends, arming IT teams to
effectively address both current and future network challenges."
