Media Alert: Gigamon to Showcase the Power of Network Metadata at 7th Annual Splunk Conference

Attendees are invited to explore strategies to deliver more signal and less noise to security appliances and gain seamless network visibility

Santa Clara, Calif. and Orlando, Fla. (September 20, 2016) - Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, invites participants at the 7th Annual Splunk Conference to learn more about the benefits of metadata and Gigamon’s solutions to achieve pervasive visibility across the network.

Gigamon will demonstrate how leveraging network metadata can increase the efficiency of security tools by ensuring the identification and delivery of the right information to operational intelligence platforms like Splunk. Gigamon experts will delve into the compliance challenges of highly regulated industries such as healthcare and finance and shed light on how metadata can separate signal from noise and enable faster time to detection of problems and potential threats.

Attendees will also learn how to:

  • Marry big data solutions with SIEM type technologies to properly identify anomalies and stay one step ahead of attackers
  • Leverage Gigamon’s powerful and unique solutions as a core component of their cyber security strategy
  • Build a detection-based strategy that involves building context of the organization’s operating environment, triangulating bad-like behavior against what is normal-like behavior for an organization and trying to identify anomalies that could lead to the presence of malware in the organization

To explore how to use metadata to get the most out of your Splunk implementation, allowing security administrators to improve security efficacy and reduce time to incident detection, visit Gigamon in booth M12.
