GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure

Deliver superior application user experiences with enhanced cloud security.

Eliminate Blind Spots and Achieve Full Visibility in Azure Deployments

Microsoft Azure offers vast scalability, reduced operational overhead, lower CAPEX — and is fully interoperable with on-premises and private clouds. But without complete visibility into the data entering, traversing and leaving Azure VNets, you may encounter blind spots that could miss hidden threats or subpar application performance.

Fortunately, there’s GigaVUE® Cloud Suite for Azure, part of the Gigamon Hawk architecture. It helps ensure resource security, maintain compliance, and deliver an optimal user experience by extending visibility to workloads running on Azure. In addition, tight coupling with Azure Network Watcher enables faster migration of applications to Azure and supports traffic backhauling to on-premises monitoring and security tools. 

With GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure, you can:

  • Provide on-prem or cloud-based tools with broad and deep L2–L7 visibility into Azure cloud traffic, including interconnected VMs.
  • Simplify and automate visibility fabric deployment, with dynamic modifications for changes in VM locations and instances through integration with Azure Network Watcher.
  • Boost tool effectiveness and efficiency by streamlining traffic sources and load balancing tools.
  • Generate app-aware NetFlow/IPFIX metadata attributes to feed SIEMS and other tools for contextual data insights.

47% of workloads are in the public cloud today

Product Details

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure acquires all VM and container-based traffic of interest. Utilizing packet de-duplication, filtering, slicing, masking and NetFlow generation, it streamlines traffic; enriches it with application-layer attributes; and distributes it to the appropriate tools. It includes:

G-vTAP Modules

Lightweight agent-like modules deployed on each VM acquire, filter, and mirror traffic and send copied traffic via IPSec to the visibility tier.

GigaVUE V Series

Visibility nodes deployed in a VNet aggregate, select, optimize, and distribute traffic to tools.


This fabric manager provides single pane-of-glass orchestration and management across the entire hybrid infrastructure—on-premises and in Azure.


“If [my peers] are moving to the cloud, there’s a big hole that they cannot fill unless they have Gigamon.”
