Gigamon Insight: Network Detection and Response

Detect, hunt and investigate threats – all with one cloud-based security solution.

Stop Managing Tools — and Start Securing Your Organization

Insight is a cloud-based network detection and response solution built for the rapid detection of threat activity, investigation of suspicious behavior, proactive hunting for potential risks, and directing a fast and effective response to active threats.

  • Focus teams on threats, not tools, with plug-n-play deployment, zero-maintenance, and an analyst focused interface designed by responders, for responders
  • Experience broad situational awareness across physical, virtual, and cloud networks
  • Prioritize what matters with high confidence detections prioritize and reduce mean-time-to-detection and response
  • Investigate in real time to quickly triage alerts and gather intelligence to direct efficient response activities


Gigamon Insight Empowers Security Teams

The Gigamon Insight solution, utilizing sensors deployed in cloud, physical or virtual infrastructures, provides the opportunity to consolidate capabilities and approach security in a new way.

The Insight sensors generate network metadata from on-premise or cloud-based environments and process it in the Gigamon Insight solution. The result, enriched multi-tenant data that’s centralized for rapid analysis and intelligent detections.


The Gigamon Detect application lets responders quickly identify and act with confidence on threats of the highest severity to help reduce mean-time-to-detection. The application features an entity-driven architecture with cross-lookup capabilities that provides the critical information responders need to act, including:

  • Quick identification of malicious activities
  • Whether an entity has previously generated an alert
  • Context into traffic type
  • Recommendations on next steps


The Gigamon Investigate application features data correlation and enrichment, and real-time search performance to help quickly understand the chain of events leading to an incident — significantly narrowing the window between identifying and remediating an event.

  • Quickly identify indicators of interest with the Entity Pane
  • Fully enriched, normalized, and searchable event data
  • Operationalized threat intelligence matching
  • Lower mean-time-to-response

Data Access

Gigamon Insight exposes all information, both raw and enriched data, through a responsive web interface and our full suite of REST APIs. Events are enriched with curated external data sources and correlated threat intelligence to generate unique insights and more data points to find threats.

Real-Time Curated Detections

Review only the most relevant alerts with fewer false-positives. Curated threat intelligence and signatures across a broad data set provides targeted insights. This intel means less time with low-quality detections and more time investigating real threats.

Scalable Sensors

Rapid deployment lets you scale up and down as needs shift. The easy-to-install, fully managed sensors can be deployed in minutes across a variety of environments.

Build, Add, Integrate, Customize

Fully documented APIs allow workflow integration to optimize visibility and easily connect to existing security tools without increasing workloads.
