Stealthwatch Learning Networks
Cisco obtained Stealthwatch technology through its acquisition of Lancope last year for $452 million, which provides context-aware threat detection and complex network forensics.
Stealthwatch is being implemented into Cisco's ISR, enabling the routers to act as a security sensor and enforcer for branch threat protection. It allows businesses to detect and track anomalies in network traffic, analyze suspicious network activity and identify malicious traffic.
"So you can set policies and block malicious connections," said Cisco's Munroe. "We're providing here enterprise-class protection for all sizes of deployments."
