Application Filtering Intelligence

Layer 7 visibility and application traffic extraction for optimal tool efficiency

Application Awareness with the Power to Take Action

Network traffic volumes are growing faster than most tools can manage - impacting enterprise security, network performance, and staff time.  

Gigamon Application Filtering Intelligence extends Layer 7 visibility to automatically identify more than 3,000 common business and network applications. It even recognizes proprietary applications that you designate.

Get a complete view of all applications traversing your network. Then define policies to direct traffic by application, or "families" of apps, only to the tools that require it. Irrelevant applications are filtered out, saving storage and processing resources.  

  • Increase tool efficiency and capacity - up to 80 percent in certain cases
  • Improve network security by using existing tools to cover a broader attack surface, including east-west traffic
  • Decrease time manually analyzing network data with automatic application identification and isolation.


Full Application Visibility and Control

Gigamon Application Filtering Intelligence gives you end-to-end granular application visibility and the power to direct specific application traffic to the appropriate tools.

With application awareness and Flow Mapping®, NetOps and SecOps teams can optimize network and security resources. Use cases include:

  • Forwarding high-risk applications, such as CRM, ERP, Microsoft Office and Bit Torrent search engine traffic, to intrusion detection systems (IDS).
  • Filtering out high-volume, low-risk traffic, such as from YouTube and Facetime.
  • Offloading routine maintenance and patches (such as Windows updates) so they don’t bog down monitoring and security appliances.
