Gigamon Application Filtering Intelligence, a key component of Gigamon Application Intelligence, extends Layer 7 visibility to thousands of common and proprietary applications. How does application filtering work?
Application Filtering Intelligence first identifies all the applications running on your network. Then, you can apply application filtering by using simple flow control to direct traffic by application, or "families" of apps, only to the tools that require it. Irrelevant application traffic is not forwarded, saving storage and processing resources.
- Gain full visibility to the applications on your network along with the network resources they consume
- Increase tool efficiency and capacity — up to 80 percent in certain cases
- Improve network security by freeing up tool resources to protect a larger attack surface, including east-west traffic
- Decrease time manually analyzing network data with automatic application identification and isolation.
