Deep Observability Defined

What is Deep Observability?

Observability Defined: Observability delivers comprehensive intelligence and insights focused on current and trending operating conditions across the digital infrastructure — from networking to computing and to cloud, security, applications, and end-user experience.

And why is it key to better securing and managing hybrid cloud infrastructure?

Deep observability goes beyond existing security and observability approaches that rely exclusively on metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) data to detect security threats and performance bottlenecks.

Keeping Ahead of a Changing Threat Landscape

Today’s threat landscape is evolving fast, with increasingly sophisticated threat actors making it harder to assure security and compliance across the hybrid cloud infrastructure. According to the Gigamon 2023 Hybrid Cloud Security Survey, the leading issues keeping IT and security leaders up at night center around unexpected blind spots, escalating attack complexity, and evolving legislation and regulatory mandates.

What is Deep Observability?

Hybrid cloud infrastructure is complex and time-consuming to secure, manage, and maintain. Modern organizations must contend with multiple cloud providers and a myriad cloud, security, and observability tools, that add layers of complexity and make it challenging to detect security threats and performance anomalies.

Despite these challenges, end users expect a superior user experience and nonstop application availability to assure business agility.

To overcome these challenges and unlock the transformative potential of the cloud, deep observability is a foundational building block.

Why Does Deep Observability Matter?

Deep observability empowers IT organizations to proactively mitigate risk, deliver a superior user experience, and contain cloud management cost and complexity. It enables you harness network-derived intelligence and insights to amplify the power of cloud, security, and observability tools and processes you’ve already invested in.

The Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline efficiently delivers network-derived intelligence to your cloud, security, and observability tools to eliminate security blind spots and reduce tool costs, enabling you to deliver defense in depth and establish a solid foundation for
Zero Trust.


Enhance Business Agility

Accelerate cloud migration and re-platforming projects through a flexible common tools stack
with native support for any cloud, any platform, or tool.


Ensure Cloud Security

Eliminate blind spots and detect vulnerabilities in all North-South, East-West, container, and encrypted traffic, gaining the visibility to build Zero Trust and strengthen tool effectiveness.


Contain Hybrid Cloud Cost and Complexity

Simplify monitoring, security, and compliance by providing access to all traffic across hybrid cloud platform. Eliminate irrelevant traffic to reduce tool and bandwidth costs up to 50 percent.
