Because Cisco's acquisition of Lancope, I tried to introduce and test the Lancope STEALTHWATCH.
Rough flow will receive the VM deploy an account in order to get the evaluation version (Evaluation) license from Lancope.
That I exchanged e-mail with the direction of the US customer support for was interesting personal best, but can not publish unfortunately for using company e-mail ...

NaaS / NaaE
Cisco will use the entire network security sensors, as a defense system

It has put forward the idea of.
The technical elements that operate the Flexible NetFlow on the Catalyst switch, but the idea of monitoring all communication. Thus, Kety a threat that can not be detected at the entrance measures and exit measures, are attempts to prevent. See this article for the use of NetFlow.

When the necessary information input from the official Web, come mail to registered e-mail address, it was conveyed in clumsy English and want evaluation license. There is a proposal that will introduce support, that decline was pretty much ... None in particular caught the place for the installation itself is manual was polite.
There needs to be a set of NetFlow in NW equipment. In my environment, I have a Cisco ASA5505 and NetFlow Exporter. See this article how to set.
Impressions of STEALTHWATCH
Can be traffic analysis of full-featured Java client, it is impressive that displays targeted only important point in the Web access. However, creating a Flow Query even Web, you can display NetFlow data by running. Order to be able to Web access is considered to be important in terms of the system disclosure to the company, evaluation is high.
When used as a NaaE will require a combination of Cisco ISE, here I think that there is a high honestly hurdle. Because it requires not cheap cost, because the careful implementation plan is required, it can not be called try to introduce into trial, difficult to make a chance to show the effect.
I think that there's to propose as a one-stop SI together with Cisco equipment. However, since there is also a similar system in the OSS, it required comparison. I think that is a certain advantage in that it can receive Cisco support.
