Data Center Monitoring
Enterprise Network Integrity
Gigamon®, the leading provider of intelligent traffic visibility, ensures network integrity including performance, security and compliance by enabling your monitoring tools to operate at maximum efficiency.
Gigamon offers a superior alternative to managing distributed, oversubscribed monitoring tools and at the same time protect the investment already made in these tools. Connect to a SPAN port or TAP into high speed 1GbE or 10GbE core links. Through a smart filtering capability, GigaVUE delivers selected traffic to any and all tools connected to our device at full line rate.
- Save CapEx and OpEx monitoring budgets by doing more with less. Aggregate several high speed connections and send specific traffic to a consolidated and secure tool farm.
- Monitor critical traffic from 10GbE ports with 1GbE tools.
- Make peace between Security and IT engineers. Solve the contention for SPAN ports or TAPs when multiple tools share the same data.
- Eliminate engineering change order delays. Provide a very secure out-of-band “data socket” that allows flexibility in connecting and disconnecting tools in a production environment without waiting for maintenance windows.
- Connect ANY tool to ANY traffic, at ANY time. TAP into several network segments simultaneously and provide many network and security engineers their own secure “sand box.”
Eliminate TAP & SPAN Port Contention
Immediately solve the constant contention between the IT team, security team and compliance team. Enable engineers to deploy monitoring tools at will.
Traffic Visibility Networking (TVN) provides a managed and secure alternative to monitoring ports:
- Local access over the serial console port.
- Remote network access using Telnet or 128-bit encrypted SSH2 over a gigabit ethernet management port.
- Multi-level user controlled access.
- TACACS+ and RADIUS authentication, authorization and accounting are supported.
- Port locking restricts individual users only to authorized ports.
- Sys-log, SNMP traps and queries supported
