Gigamon Application Filtering Intelligence, a key component of Gigamon Application Intelligence, extends Layer 7 visibility to thousands of common and proprietary applications.
How Application Filtering works
Application Filtering Intelligence first identifies all the applications running on your network. Then, it lets you apply application filtering by using simple flow control to direct traffic by application, or families of applications only to the tools that require it. Irrelevant application traffic is not forwarded, saving storage and processing resources.
Gigamon Application Filtering Intelligence gives you end-to-end granular application visibility and the power to direct specific application traffic to the appropriate tools.
With application awareness and Flow Mapping®, NetOps and InfoSec teams can optimize network and security resources. Use cases include:
Improves system performance by sending only applicable traffic to the right network and security tools at the right time.
By freeing up security resources, you can secure more of your network without additional investments.
Set and change application filtering policies with a few clicks — no more tedious scripting and updating rules.
“Improving observability is a critical challenge in network operations. Automating application identification and directing analysis traffic on that enhanced context is a powerful capability that Gigamon Application Intelligence brings to network management.”
GigaSMART® offers a number of other essential traffic intelligence services required for active visibility into infrastructure blind spots, including:
Delivering basic Layer 2–4 network traffic data to analysis tools.
Advanced Flow Slicing
Eliminates these issues by slicing payloads and packets from long data flow.
Source Port Labeling
Provides context to packets and allows tools to properly assess network behavior and threats based on where they are.
Adaptive Packet Filtering
Identifies patterns across any part of the network packet, including the packet payload.
Creates a secure channel between the server and the end user's computer or other devices as they exchange information.
Truncates packets while preserving the portion of the packet (the protocol headers) required for network analysis.
Advanced Load Balancing
Divides and distributes traffic among multiple tools, so network and security visibility can scale.
Targets, identifies and eliminates duplicate packets, blocking unnecessary duplication and sending optimized flows.
Provides customizable data protection by overwriting specific packet fields with a set pattern.
Alleviates blindness of business-critical traffic at remote sites, virtualized data centers, or hosted in a public cloud.
Provides a complete view of the applications running on your network automatically.
