GigaVUE V Series

Aggregate, optimize and selectively distribute traffic from the public cloud to your security tools.

Enhance Your Security in Public Clouds

Organizations are making the move to the public cloud to take advantage of economies of scale, cost savings, and reduction in complexity. But migrating to the cloud doesn’t reduce the burden on security and monitoring tools – in fact, most tools are experiencing tool overload as there is simply too much data traversing public cloud networks. As a result, security risks and threats are not being identified in time to stop attacks, which often have significant implications for reputation and brand.

The GigaVUE® V Series are visibility nodes that are deployed in the public cloud, where they aggregate, select, optimize and distribute traffic. With the Gigamon solution, enterprises can send relevant traffic to their security tools, reducing cost and complexity across their entire IT environment.

Stop Tool Sprawl and Tool Overload in the Cloud

To access traffic traversing the public cloud, enterprises are leveraging agents to copy network traffic. The Gigamon G-vTAP agent is a lightweight agent that is deployed on both Linux and Windows workloads in the public cloud that sends mirrored traffic to the GigaVUE V Series.

Once mirrored traffic is received, the V Series leverages the following applications for traffic optimization:

  • Flow Mapping®: Select traffic of interest by using overlapping rules and nested conditions
  • NetFlow and IPFIX Generation: Generate flow records from network traffic to determine IP source, traffic destination, class of service, causes of congestion
  • Slicing, Sampling, Masking: Optimize and send only relevant traffic to tools.

By sending the right traffic to the right tools, organizations can stop tool sprawl and overload, ensuring an effective security posture.

As organizations build out their public cloud infrastructure, they are forced to manually configure each compute instance for effective security and monitoring.The GigaVUE V Series leverages Automatic Target Selection, a patented Gigamon technology that automatically selects and delivers traffic that matches configured policies when new cloud instances spin up, saving time and resources.

The GigaVUE V Series also automatically scales based on the varying number of compute instances without lowering the performance of the visibility nodes, which is key in ever-changing cloud environments.
