Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR among the best network security solutions in 2021

Santa Clara, CA – November 18, 2021  – Gigamon, the leader in cloud visibility and analytics, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR as a Finalist in the 2021 Tech Innovator Awards in the “Network Security'' category. This recognition comes on the heels of the Gigamon Catalyst Channel Program's rapid growth, expanding to more than 2,800 partners worldwide in 2021.

This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories in critical areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. A panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity and ability to address customer and partner needs.

Recent studies show 70% of security operations center (SOC) analysts report burnout due to high-pressure environments and 69% of SOC analysts cite the lack of visibility into network traffic as a top reason for ineffectiveness. Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR uniquely addresses these requirements by blending technology, solution management, and security expertise to provide a complete solution to dismantle adversaries quickly and effectively.  

“We are thrilled about the level of interest we’ve received from our customers and partners since launching ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR earlier this year,” said Larissa Crandall, vice president of worldwide channel and alliances at Gigamon. “Since the launch, the service has retained a 99% renewal rate and has quickly become a foundational pillar of our customers’ visibility, detection and response arsenal.”

“CRN’s annual Tech Innovator Awards acknowledge technology vendors that display their ongoing commitment to empowering and enabling end users, while also promoting continuous business growth for solution providers, with cutting-edge, purpose-built products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “I’d like to personally congratulate each and every one of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We are proud to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at This recognition from CRN follows numerous accolades for the Gigamon channel program including Crandall’s inclusion in the 2021 CRN Channel Chiefs list and the 2021 Women of the Channel list, as well as a 5-Star rating in the 2021 CRN Partner Program Guide for Gigamon.
