Traffic Intelligence

There’s a reason we’re the leader. It’s all in the intelligence.

Designed for Intelligence from Start to Finish

Gigamon has designed a truly comprehensive traffic intelligence solution – from the physical appliance to the operating system to the application layer. These capabilities can be applied to any industry vertical from service providers to enterprises such as finance and healthcare to government and education.

Starting at the physical layer, GigaVUE® Visibility Appliances collect, filter and process network traffic at high speeds from across your infrastructure. The underlying software operating system, GigaVUE-OS, helps to efficiently distribute traffic and secure your infrastructure while the industry-leading GigaSMART® traffic intelligence applications optimize traffic monitoring and analysis.

With GigaSMART traffic intelligence, you can selectively deliver the right traffic to the right security and network traffic monitoring tools, both inline and out of band. Gigamon offers a next-generation network packet broker (NPB) that uses traffic intelligence to deliver optimized traffic to the tools. The resulting benefit: Improve the overall ROI of your security and monitoring tools, deploy security initiatives faster and stop tool sprawl.

GigaSMART® is a comprehensive set of technologies that extend the intelligence and value of the Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline by enhancing the monitoring of your network infrastructure and improving security and network traffic monitoring tool performance. The GigaSMART applications increase ROI of your inline and out-of-band security and monitoring tools. A range of applications are available, including:  

GigaVUE-OS enables the appliance to do more than just send aggregated traffic to tools. It provides:

  • Flow Mapping®: Sends network traffic through a set of user-defined map rules to the tools and applications that secure, monitor and analyze your network.
  • Load balances traffic across monitoring and security tools to reduce tool oversubscription.
  • Logical Bypass: Detects failures proactively and forwards traffic either to other tools or to the network.

GigaVUE Visibility Appliances range in capacity to address the increasing volumes of data and network speeds.  Features support and complement an integrated and intelligent approach to security and network monitoring with:

  • Inline Bypass: Helps to maintain security and performance in the event of a failure. In addition, removing, upgrading or adding tools has little to no impact on network performance and no longer requires waiting on maintenance windows.
  • GigaSMART: Provides traffic intelligence applications through a physical module or built-in functionality on the visibility appliance as well as with cloud and virtualized solutions.
