Gigamon (NYSE: GIMO) said it has announced a forthcoming expanded set of solutions to address the growing security needs of organizations.
These new solutions include modules to address inline traffic security with high availability modes, as well as intelligent load distribution across multiple inline and out-of-band security tools. These latest offerings, together with Gigamon´s powerful, patented Flow Mapping technology and the advanced traffic intelligence capabilities of the Visibility Fabric, will enable simultaneous deployment of multiple, best-of-breed, inline and out-of-band security monitoring and management solutions for more pervasive and proactive threat monitoring and mitigation.
The new GigaVUE-HC2 modules extend the power of the Visibility Fabric with Active Visibility, utilizing intelligence and robust bypass capabilities to better protect both critical IT traffic and the inline tools designed to prevent malicious activity. Advanced threats require more sophisticated tools, but these specialized security tools are often processor-bound and may not be able to handle increasing traffic volumes as effectively. Gigamon´s Visibility Fabric establishes a more efficient system by sending only the appropriate data to each tool. In addition, the Visibility Fabric continuously monitors the health of the attached inline tools and in the event of a tool failure will bypass the outage to ensure the network remains available and protected. For example, an inline appliance can be removed for maintenance while allowing network traffic to be sustained.
Gigamon provides an intelligent Visibility Fabric architecture for enterprises, data centers and service providers around the globe. Its website is at www.gigamon.com.
