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 several essential traffic intelligence services required for deep observability into infrastructure blind spots.
Delivers basic Layer 2–4 network traffic data to analysis tools.
Source Port Labeling
Provides context to packets and identifies behaviors and threats based on network location.
Adaptive Packet Filtering
Identifies patterns across any part of the network packet, including the packet payload.
Targets, identifies, and eliminates duplicate packets, blocking unnecessary duplication and sending optimized flows.
Truncates packets while preserving the protocol headers required for network analysis.
Advanced Load Balancing
Divides and distributes traffic among multiple tools based on a variety of data points.
Advanced Flow Slicing
Reduces bandwidth usage by slicing payloads and packets from long data 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 in the public or private cloud.
Provides a complete view of the applications running on your network.
