Lancope Launches IDS Mgmt. Tool
New management console lets administrators manage multiple IDS appliances from a central location.Lancope Inc. on Tuesday unveiled its new StealthWatch Management Console, which is designed to enable administrators to manage multiple IDS appliances from a central location. The console collects data from all of the StealthWatch IDS boxes deployed in a given network and correlates the information. A user can select a specific security event and get details on that attack or use the information to help identify trends or coordinated attacks across the network. The user interface includes reporting, logging and management screens. It also allows users to define their own views, query data and customize reports based on any given aspect of a security event.
For example, a user can design a custom report detailing all of the attacks from a certain IP address, every attack on a given port or every instance of a specific type of attack.
