AGL Resources, the parent of Atlanta Gas Light Company, has deployed StealthWatch from Lancope as part of its network protection for more than 35 locations stretched across four states.

Lancope provides network protection based on behavior threat defense, policy enforcement and network intelligence.

AGL said Lancope’s system will provide its network and security teams insight into internal communications and improve network performance.

“StealthWatch is a powerful network integrity solution,” said Kristin Kirkconnell, chief information officer of AGL.” Without a proactive approach to network security, a cyber attack can easily cripple any network and significantly reduce productivity.”
