Media Alert: Gigamon Announces General Availability of the GigaVUE-HC3 Visibility Node and Inline SSL Decryption Solutions

Santa Clara, Calif., (June 1, 2017)Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the industry leader in traffic visibility solutions, announced today the general availability of two new solutions in its expanding security portfolio: the GigaVUE-HC3 visibility node and Inline SSL decryption application. With these solutions, organizations can now address challenges introduced by the increased volumes of data that are surpassing the capacity and performance of many legacy security and monitoring tools.

GigaVUE-HC3 is a high-performance, flagship appliance enabling pervasive visibility and security intelligence at scale in 10Gb, 40Gb and 100Gb networks. GigaVUE-HC3 provides a total of 800Gbps of GigaSMART® traffic intelligence per node, scaling to 25Tbps in clustered configurations and up to 3.2Tbps of processing per node that scales to over 100Tbps per cluster. The solution enables IT and security organizations to:

  • Optimize the utilization of security tools
  • Achieve improved network and tool performance
  • Gain deeper insight into, and awareness of, the data-in-motion regardless of the throughput

The new inline SSL Decryption application is a key component of GigaSMART traffic intelligence application suite that significantly expands the applicability of SSL decryption beyond the previously supported out-of-band SSL decryption. It automatically identifies all SSL/TLS traffic across ports and applications, decrypting the traffic once and feeding it to multiple tools for scale and resilience. The solution helps remove network blind spots to expose malicious threats and feeds decrypted traffic-of-interest to the appropriate security tools for immediate analysis and mitigation.


“Organizations that deal with large volumes of network traffic are increasingly concerned about the attack surface exposed by high-speed, distributed infrastructure and the ensuing challenges created for network security teams,” said Ananda Rajagopal, vice president of products at Gigamon. “Ensuring visibility and control in such environments is not just about tapping network traffic but also rapidly finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. The GigaVUE-HC3 is the first platform in the industry to provide intelligent visibility at scale.”

“Inline SSL decryption represents a strategic technology evolution that further expands the benefits of the Gigamon Security Delivery Platform,” continued Rajagopal. “By offering SSL decryption as a service in the Security Delivery Platform complemented by strong policy enforcement, organizations can create a centralized ‘decryption zone’, enabling them to more easily see and manage their growing SSL/TLS traffic volumes, while enabling their existing security tools with newfound visibility into formerly encrypted traffic and threats, and expanding their value."
