Winner: Lancope StealthWatch System Version 6.5
From the numerous submissions in the security category this year, we judged Lancope as the most innovative. The proven technology used in Lancope StealthWatch System Version 6.5 employs context-aware threat detection and complex network forensics. According to the company, it transforms the entire visible network into a virtual sensor grid for detecting a wide range of threats, including APTs, DDoS, botnets, zero-day malware and insider threats. The system combines this intelligence with context factors such as user identity, time, location, application and device in use to improve incident response.
