Gigamon Named as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 Market Guide for Network Detection and Response

ThreatINSIGHT enables InfoSec teams to shift the balance of power from attackers to responders

Santa Clara, CA - July 14, 2020 – Gigamon, the company providing network visibility and analytics on all information-in-motion, today announced that it was named as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Network Detection and Response (NDR). The Market Guide for NDR, formerly known as network traffic analysis, is an overview of the market which covers vendors that security and risk management leaders should consider before investing in a solution.   

Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT is a cloud-native, high-velocity NDR that was built for responders, by responders, to shift the balance of power from attackers to responders. 

"Enterprises should strongly consider NDR solutions to complement signature-based tools and network sandboxes. Many Gartner clients have reported that NDR tools have detected suspicious network traffic that other perimeter security tools had missed," wrote Gartner analysts Lawrence Orans, Jeremy D'Hoinne, and John Chessman. Since its inception, Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT has focused on response as a process that includes triage, investigation, corroboration and then mitigation. The first three stages are critical to ensuring any automated actions deliver the intended result.

In the report, Gartner recognizes that “some vendors focus more on automated response (for example, sending a command to a firewall to drop suspicious traffic), whereas other vendors focus more on manual responses (for example, providing strong threat hunting tools).” The report recommends, “Enterprises should decide which approach is a better fit for them and should analyze the vendors with response features that best meet their requirements.”

ThreatINSIGHT enables InfoSec teams to reduce risk and improve resiliency in dynamic environments by providing:

  • UNEQUALED VISIBILITY with comprehensive visibility (N/S/E/W + AWS/Azure/Cloud + Decrypted Traffic) and up to 30 days of enriched network metadata to enable threat hunting and full incident investigation
  • HIGH-FIDELITY THREAT DETECTION with leading curated threat intelligence, machine learning and behavioral analysis and accelerated threat detection across entire MITRE ATT&CK framework
  • RAPID, INFORMED RESPONSE with powerful threat hunting, full investigation and incident management workflows, evidence to make informed / complete response decisions, and integrations with leading security solutions to rapidly carry out mitigation actions

“As the global economy regains its strength and network activity increases, threat actors are lurking in the shadows, searching for ways to compromise the expanded threat attack surface. As attack frequency increases, the need for expansive, flexible and automated NDR solutions to protect the networks of tomorrow has never been higher,” said Karl Van den Bergh, Chief Marketing Officer at Gigamon. “We believe our inclusion in this Gartner Market Guide validates our ability to deliver the visibility responders need to detect threats with high confidence.”

Gigamon is offering selected network security operations teams a no-charge trial deployment and a self-drive to experience the ThreatINSIGHT advanced capabilities during this time of unprecedented change.

ThreatINSIGHT can be deployed as a standalone solution or used in conjunction with the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric, outlined here
