As today's cyber-attackers become more sophisticated and nefarious, organizations must adopt the right mix of conventional and next-generation security tools to effectively defend their infrastructure from advanced threats. The Critical Security Controls effort is a growing movement that has been helping government agencies and large enterprises prioritize their cyber security spending accordingly.

By leveraging NetFlow and other types of flow data, Lancope's StealthWatch System delivers continuous network visibility to fulfill a number of the highest priority controls, enhancing timely detection of targeted threats and improving incident response.

Join Lancope and SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends, John Pescatore, to learn the latest about the Critical Security Controls and hear how the StealthWatch System fits in.
