Gigamon’s patented GigaSMART® technology extends the intelligence and value of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ architecture with the capabilities to modify packets at line rate and add valuable information to your monitoring infrastructure with a range of features and applications to enable the modification, manipulation, transformation, and transport of traffic from your network to the tools you rely upon for management, monitoring, and security.
Network monitoring tools can now perform more efficiently by removing unwanted protocol headers using header striping, and eliminating unwanted content with de-duplication and packet slicing features. Masking allows network security teams to hide confidential information like passwords, financial accounts, or medical data allowing companies to meet SOX, HIPAA, and PCI compliance regulations. Organizations can improve accuracy by adding source or timing information at the point of collection with the source port labeling and time stamping capabilities.
GigaSMART® advanced processing capabilities can also be leveraged to summarize and generate NetFlow Generation statistics from incoming traffic streams. Offloading NetFlow Generation Generation to the out-of-band Gigamon Visibility Fabric eliminates the risk of expending expensive production network resources in generating these analytics. Enhanced flow-level visibility across remote locations and Big Data environments can be used to derive usage patterns, top talkers, top applications etc., for effective capacity planning and enforcing security policies.
