Gigamon Delivers Comprehensive Visibility for Nutanix Powered Private Cloud Architectures

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix provides pervasive visibility to secure mission-critical workloads in the cloud

Santa Clara, CA – June 11, 2020 - Gigamon, the company providing network visibility and analytics on all information-in-motion, today announced the general availability of its GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix. GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix is validated joint solution for hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) which resides completely in the private cloud. The solution allows the enterprise to optimize performance, improve security, minimize appliance overprovisioning and prevent network outages.

Global IT and InfoSec teams navigate critical digital transformation (DX) initiatives with a common goal of delivering a consistent end user experience. At the heart of these initiatives lies network speed which is critical for performance, and improved security, which is cited by over 60 percent of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Index respondents as the biggest factor impacting cloud future strategies.

“Nutanix views security as an important factor impacting cloud strategies and this requires the ability to monitor and visualize all traffic, including East-West, by directing it to the right tools,” said Prasad Athawale, Senior Director of Business Development at Nutanix. “Gigamon enables our customers to gain this critical visibility to help protect resources and help ensure compliance.”

“As organizations accelerate the move to cloud infrastructures to support their remote workers and DX initiatives, the attack surface expands, making full control and visibility over all network traffic crucial,” said Bassam Khan, Vice President of Product Marketing at Gigamon. “Gigamon is proud to include an industry leader such as Nutanix in our ecosystem as we work with our customers to secure, manage and optimize cloud, virtual and physical environments.”

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix enables customers to:

  • Gain complete visibility: Automatically identify workloads, instantiate and scale GigaVUE G-vTAP VMs for traffic acquisition and configure traffic policies
  • Identify over 3,000 applications: Send the right application traffic to the right tool while generating over 5,000 L4-7 metadata attributes for deeper security and performance related contextual insights
  • Improve tool capacity: Virtual security and monitoring tools are offloaded from burdensome tasks and irrelevant traffic to improve effectiveness, facilitate scaling and minimize costs

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Nutanix provides an ‘application aware’ network traffic visibility solution that works seamlessly with Nutanix Prism. Organizations can now automatically acquire Nutanix AHV based workload traffic, optimize the traffic content, and distribute selected traffic to security and monitoring tools, increasing security, operational efficiency and scale across multiple data center locations.
