Company’s innovative approach to network visibility makes Lancope a top competitor in the cybersecurity landscape
Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, has been ranked #7 in the Cybersecurity 500 list of hot companies to watch in 2015. Compiled by research and market intelligence firm, Cybersecurity Ventures, the list highlights the most innovative security providers in the marketplace. Lancope earned a top spot for its unique approach of defending enterprise networks from the inside out using advanced anomaly detection and security analytics.
“In a space that includes so many vendors and different types of defensive technologies, Lancope is thrilled to be recognised among the top 10 cybersecurity providers for our innovation in leveraging the network as a sensor to deliver context-aware security analytics,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “Relentless pursuit of network visibility and an unwavering dedication to solving our customers’ most difficult security problems have always been the cornerstone of our business. We are delighted to have received such a strong affirmation of our strategy from Cybersecurity Ventures and the many security practitioners they consulted to create this listing.”
Unlike traditional market space listings that rank companies by revenue, employees or annual growth, the Cybersecurity 500 instead chose its honorees based on more subjective factors. These factors include, among others: thought leadership, product innovation, security problems solved by the company, customer base, media coverage and feedback from CISOs and other security industry experts.
“Out of the thousands of potential companies we evaluated for this inaugural listing, Lancope was one of the best in terms of the technology it offers and its overall reputation among the security community and its hundreds of enterprise customers,” said Steve Morgan, founder and CEO of Cybersecurity Ventures. “We are very excited to have Lancope on the Cybersecurity 500 list, and look forward to seeing the company’s future growth and innovation as it rises up the ranks in the security market.”
Instead of focusing on the network perimeter where most security safeguards are placed, Lancope leverages massive amounts of data from existing infrastructure to protect enterprise networks from the inside out. By collecting and applying sophisticated security analytics to NetFlow and other types of network data, Lancope’s StealthWatch® System provides a comprehensive, 24/7 look at everything that is going on within the network to quickly detect a wide range of attacks from APTs and insider threats to DDoS and zero-day malware.
Additional layers of visibility including identity, application and device awareness help turn the entire network into a sensor grid for uncovering and shutting down advanced attacks before they wreak havoc on the network and lead to devastating data breaches. Hundreds of organisations around the world rely on Lancope to improve incident response and dramatically reduce enterprise risk.
