Acquisition advances Cisco's Security Everywhere strategy.
Cisco has acquired Lancope, a privately held company headquartered in Alpharetta, GA. Lancope helps customers monitor, detect, analyze and respond to modern threats on enterprise networks through continuous network visibility and specialized threat analysis and protection.
Lancope's StealthWatch system provides visibility into suspicious traffic patterns inside the network to quickly detect a wide range of attacks. This helps enterprises reduce time to detection, respond to incidents faster, improve forensic investigations, and reduce risks for the company.
Through a successful partnership between the companies, Lancope has been part of Cisco's security solution for many years and now we are coming together as one entity. The combined solutions secure customers' resources and critical assets by using their network as a sensor — providing enhanced visibility, context, and control over threats.
Lancope enhances Cisco's Security Everywhere strategy, enabling the network to become a security sensor, delivering continuous visibility, and accelerating incident response across the extended enterprise.
