GigaVUE Cloud Suite for VMware

Virtual network visibility solutions with automated scaling.

Pervasive Visibility into Virtual Workloads

The move to virtualized and private cloud environments no longer means compromising on network visibility. Easily deliver optimized traffic to your monitoring and security tools and stop manually installing and configuring individual tool agents.

VMware vCenter and NSX-T work in concert with Fabric Manager to deploy an agentless GigaVUE® V Series VM. These instances reside on each monitored server to mirror traffic based on workload VMs and ports.

Each V Series can process and send traffic to a central aggregation second-phase V Series (or HC Series appliance) or directly to tools.

With GigaVUE Cloud Suite for VMware you can:

  • Gain insights into East-West traffic flows between virtual machines to track lateral threats
  • Reduce tool cost and increase efficiency by streamlining data sent to tools
  • Deploy a fully virtualized visibility fabric with complete automation and dynamic scaling
  • Identify over 3500 applications and selectively filter and forward them to the right tools with contextual insights

Nearly 60% of enterprises are using or evaluating VMware for private cloud
