Eliminate Blind Spots and Achieve Full Visibility in Azure Deployments

Microsoft Azure offers vast scalability, reduced operational burden, lower CAPEX — and it can fully operate with on-premises and private clouds. But without complete visibility into the data entering, traversing and leaving Azure VNets, you may be vulnerable to hidden threats and subpar application performance.

Fortunately, there’s GigaVUE® Cloud Suite for Azure, part of the Gigamon Hawk architecture. It helps ensure resource security, compliance and an optimal user experience by extending visibility to workloads and applications running on Azure. In addition, tight coupling with Azure Network Watcher enables faster migration of apps to Azure and supports traffic backhauling to on-premises monitoring and security tools.  

With GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure, you can:

  • Provide on-prem or cloud-based tools with broad and deep L2–L7 visibility into Azure cloud traffic, including interconnected VMs
  • Simplify and automate visibility fabric deployment, with dynamic modifications for changes in VM locations and instances through integration with Azure Network Watcher
  • Boost tool effectiveness and efficiency by streamlining traffic sources and load balancing tools
  • Generate app-aware NetFlow/IPFIX metadata attributes to feed SIEMS and other tools for contextual data insights


Improved Monitoring and Security of Azure Workloads

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure starts by acquiring all VM and container-based traffic of interest. Then, through the service chaining of one or more GigaSMART® apps, such as packet de-duplication, filtering, slicing, masking and NetFlow generation, traffic is streamlined and enriched with application-layer attributes. Finally, this optimized data is distributed to the appropriate tools.

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure comprises three key components:

  • G-vTAP modules: Lightweight agent-like modules deployed on each VM that acquire, filter and mirror traffic and send copied traffic via IPSec to the visibility tier
  • GigaVUE V-Series: Visibility nodes deployed in a VNet that aggregate, select, optimize and distribute traffic to tools
  • GigaVUE-FM: Single-pane-of-glass orchestration and management across entire hybrid cloud infrastructure — on-premises and in Azure

GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Azure puts you back in charge of your network performance and security. Here are just a few of the many benefits you’ll see right away and in the future.
