Lancope wins patent for profiler

Lancope, maker of the Stealth- Watch network behavior analysis and response system, has received a patent for its port-profiling invention, a method for detecting unauthorized network use.

Instead of relying on databases of known attacks, which require ongoing updates to stay current, StealthWatch inspects all inbound and outbound activity and identifies new services that don't comply with host profiles. Lancope said StealthWatch's approach allows it to operate at much higher speeds than other detection systems do.
