Gigamon Charts Course to Help Organizations Worldwide Meet Zero Trust Architecture Requirements in Complex Hybrid Cloud Environments

Company hosts Visualyze Zero Trust Security Summit in Washington D.C. with government and industry leaders from CISA, NASA, DHS, and DoD

Washington D.C. – Feb. 29, 2024 — Gigamon, a leading deep observability company, continues to help organizations worldwide define their Zero Trust strategies and drive their underlying initiatives. Today the company is hosting the Visualyze Zero Trust Security Summit in Washington, D.C. bringing together leaders from across the government and technology sectors to explore tactics to mitigate and reduce risk by gaining deep observability into data from the data center, the cloud, and the edge, as well as outlooks on technology partnerships across an expanding Zero Trust ecosystem.

According to the Gigamon Hybrid Security Cloud report, visibility is a key step in the Zero Trust journey, with 100 percent of respondents believing that deep observability is required for Zero Trust. Yet, today, only 34 percent believe they have achieved the visibility required to enable a Zero Trust framework. With an ever-increasing threat landscape brought on by the rise of adversarial AI, threat actors leveraging highly sophisticated techniques such as living off the land and increasingly realistic deepfakes to compromise organizations of all sizes and across industries, organizations are challenged to secure and manage hybrid cloud infrastructure. Accelerating the need for organizations to address the current lack of visibility, the White House has issued a Sept. 30, 2024 deadline for federal agencies to meet specific cybersecurity standards and objectives and demonstrate they have achieved a Zero Trust cybersecurity framework.

“Recent attacks like the Volt Typhoon campaign have led CISA and others to highlight state-sponsored compromises and their persistent presence in U.S. critical infrastructure,” said Michael Dickman, chief product officer at Gigamon and a keynote speaker at today’s event. “Clearly, more work is needed to control, detect, investigate, and respond to threat actors who are bypassing perimeter and endpoint security measures. Today we’re thrilled to bring leading experts on Zero Trust together to share critical insights and real-world best practices to help organizations build and implement their Zero Trust strategies and initiatives.” 

About the Visualyze Zero Trust Security Summit
Today’s event, hosted by Gigamon and Meritalk, features more than 20 speakers and panelists presenting policy best practices, security successes, practical applications, lessons learned, and next steps on the journey toward Zero Trust.

In the early afternoon, Melinda Rogers, the Department of Justice’s Chief Information Officer and Deputy Assistant Attorney General, will provide a keynote address that highlights the DOJ’s progress toward Zero Trust thus far. She’ll discuss the importance of industry partnerships and offer insights into next steps for Zero Trust adoption and how to strengthen cyber resilience to secure government into the future.

Additional panel presentations will follow featuring highly respected speakers such as Dr. Mark Stanley, Information Technology and Cybersecurity Leadership and Engineering, NASA; Sean Connelly, Senior Cyber Security Architect at the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency; Vu Nguyen, Chief Information Security Officer at U.S. Department of Justice; and more.
