Gigamon Hawk goes beyond current observability approaches that rely exclusively on the logging of metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT). According to IDC*, network-derived intelligence and insights provide an immutable source of truth that contributes strong value to security posture and practices when used in conjunction with log-based tools.
Gigamon extends the value of your cloud, security, and observability tools with real-time network intelligence derived from packets, flows and application metadata to deliver defense-in-depth and complete performance management across your hybrid and multi- cloud IT infrastructures.
This allows you to shift to a proactive security posture by pinpointing threats and anomalies to mitigate exposure to risk and expedite trouble shooting.
