GigaVUE Cloud Suite for AWS

Achieve superior user experience, security, and compliance.



Visibility for AWS and Hybrid Cloud

GigaVUE® Cloud Suite for AWS acquires, optimizes, and intelligently delivers traffic to the right monitoring and security tools. Part of the Gigamon Hawk architecture, it offers granular insights into North-South and East-West traffic flows to enable effective application performance monitoring, lateral threat detection, and compliance. It lets you:

  • Provide on-premises and cloud tools visibility across AWS and your entire hybrid cloud infrastructure and unmanaged devices
  • Automatically scale visibility of fabric deployments, dynamically adapting to changes in VM instances and locations
  • Flexibly acquire packets via AWS VPC traffic mirroring service, Gigamon virtual TAPs, or tunnel-as-a-source


Understand cloud adoption patterns to better navigate your cloud migration journey.

Product Details

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for AWS lets you gain detailed visibility across your environment, from raw packets all the way to the application layer, together with contextual insights. This certified solution with deep integration into AWS CloudWatch includes three key components:

G-vTAP Modules

Lightweight agents deployed in an Amazon EC2 instance prefilter production traffic, mirror it, and send it via IPSec to GigaVUE V Series nodes. Only one agent per Amazon EC2 instance is required rather than deploying one for each security tool.

GigaVUE V Series

Visibility nodes deployed in VPCs aggregate, select and apply multi-Gbps GigaSMART® app processing and load balance traffic to tools. Support acquiring traffic from Amazon VPC traffic mirroring services, load balancers, or via tunnel-as-a-source methods.


Get centralized orchestration and management via a single-pane-of-glass across the hybrid cloud, including on-premises, AWS, and private clouds. Configure traffic policies for both G-vTAP Module and V Series fast with a simple drag-and-drop user interface.


"Helping our customers derive value from their cloud investment and solutions is the most important aspect of our work at AWS. Using AWS with Gigamon Hawk customers can gain the visibility they need across their hybrid – or pure cloud – infrastructure to be confident in its security, performance and scalability.”
