You’ve carefully planned your network security architecture and purchased the latest, most advanced security tools. But that’s not enough.
An effective security posture based on zero trust principals requires seeing all traffic across your network — not just a portion. You also need to know what the threats are, and how best to respond. The Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline makes it easy by giving you one platform for deep and pervasive visibility across your entire network.
How you supply network traffic to your security tools is critical. If you rely on switch or router generated NetFlow or SPAN ports, your security tools are not getting everything they need for reliable analysis. A better way to collect and send traffic to your tools is by using network TAPs together with Gigamon, which sits between your tools and the network layer.
The key benefits are:
Up to 80 percent of internet traffic will be encrypted by the end of 2019. Cybercriminals use encryption to conceal malware, hide command-and-control traffic and cloak the exfiltration of stolen data. You need a way to efficiently decrypt traffic, share it with tools and then re-encrypt it.
Gigamon SSL/TLS Decryption centrally decrypts all network traffic, taking that burden off expensive security tools, and exposes hidden threats, malware and data exfiltration attempts.
To accurately detect threats and mitigate shadow IT, you need full application visibility and traffic control. Gigamon Application Intelligence gives you the power to automatically identify applications and then send the right traffic to the right tools, so you don’t waste expensive security resources. Next, Gigamon provides your security tools with valuable context around protocols and applications, helping you shorten investigative cycle times.
“We used Gigamon to support the G20 Summit's cybersecurity. The equipment helped the related parties share monitoring of the system and security without reducing the service level.”
“Before Gigamon, we had out-of-band SSL decryption everywhere, and we were decrypting about 65 percent of traffic on average. Now, with the GigaSMART SSL decryption engine, we typically get well over 90 percent visibility in the encrypted traffic.”
“With Gigamon we are able to gain visibility into our environment through a single pane of glass. This is crucial given we can’t protect what we can’t see.”
The GigaVUE® V Series allows us to see East-West traffic — not just traffic coming in and out of the organization. Now we see traffic within the organization.”
