Gigamon gets AWS Networking competency partner status

Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), an industry provider of traffic visibility solutions for cybersecurity and monitoring applications, has announced that the Gigamon Visibility Platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS) has achieved AWS Networking Competency status, a certification in the AWS Partner Network (APN) program, the company said.

The company also introduced NetFlow and IPFIX flow record generation for its AWS offering, enabling organizations to establish rapid and pervasive visibility into traffic traversing on AWS. With this capability, enterprises can effectively deliver summarized, critical data to their security and monitoring tools.

The Gigamon solution underwent rigorous evaluations to meet the APN technical validation criteria for reliability, security, performance and product architecture, including review of live customer deployments. Customers across a broad cross-section of enterprise verticals have adopted the Gigamon Visibility Platform for AWS including Zendesk and the CME Group.

Gigamon introduced the Visibility Platform for AWS in November 2016, enabling enterprises to extend their security posture to the public cloud. By working closely with AWS, Gigamon has progressed rapidly through the AWS Partner Network APN Standard and Advanced tier requirements including achieving Public Sector partner status for its GovCloud solution.

A new GigaSMART® traffic intelligence capability–standards-based, NetFlow and IPFIX record generation — is now available for the Gigamon Visibility Platform on AWS. NetFlow and IPFIX are powerful technologies that are used by both security and network operations teams to extract summarized information on network traffic flows and deliver NetFlow to a large ecosystem of security and monitoring tools.

Gigamon provides active visibility into physical and virtual network traffic, enabling stronger security and superior performance. The Gigamon Visibility Platform and the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform, deliver advanced intelligence so that security, network, and application performance management solutions in enterprise, government, and service provider networks operate more efficiently and effectively.
