Gigamon Named 2023 Top InfoSec Innovator Awards’ Most Innovative Cloud Security Monitoring Vendor

New Gigamon Precryption technology earns the company coveted recognition in the 11th Annual Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards during CyberDefenseCon 2023

Santa Clara, Calif. – Nov. 1, 2023 — Gigamon, the leading deep observability company, has been named the Most Innovative Cloud Security Monitoring Vendor for its breakthrough Precryption technology from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

Today, 93 percent of malware lurks behind encryption, making encrypted traffic the most significant security blind spot for organizations. Gigamon Precryption technology, the latest innovation added to the Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline, provides unobscured visibility into encrypted traffic across cloud, virtual, and container workloads running across hybrid cloud infrastructure. This automated technology provides a cost-efficient, nearly-zero overhead solution for InfoSec, Network, and CloudOps teams to manage compliance and bolster security monitoring across hybrid cloud infrastructure.

“As we continue to see high-profile cybersecurity attacks, such as those in Las Vegas that rendered traditional perimeter security ineffective, we’re excited to deliver Gigamon Precryption technology to our customers to assure they gain the visibility required to better secure their networks,” said Michael Dickman, chief product officer at Gigamon. “This recognition by Cyber Defense Magazine further validates the critical need for deep observability across today’s hybrid cloud infrastructure, and specifically the need for visibility into encrypted data.”

Gigamon Precryption technology brings plaintext visibility to encrypted traffic, enabling IT and security professionals to capture cloud traffic before encryption or after decryption. Precryption technology reveals previously concealed threat activity, including lateral movement, malware distribution, and data exfiltration, and eliminates the need to use cumbersome decryption methods that require managing and maintaining decryption keys.

“Cyber Defense Magazine scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber-crime. Gigamon is worthy of being named a winner in these coveted awards and consideration for deployment in the organization's environment,” said Yan Ross, editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
