Learn how to reduce your network and security tools costs by 50 percent now.

See How You Can Stretch Tool Efficiency to Save Millions

With increasing economic headwinds, planning for uncertainly is a top priority. Whether you're a small or large organization, IT budgets are sure to come under heightened scrutiny and are at risk of being frozen or reduced, even as the volume of network traffic is expected to continue increasing.

Do you have a network security and monitoring tools line item in your budget? If so, you can apply a range of traffic optimization techniques to make your current tools 2-5 times more efficient, without reducing their effectiveness. The result? You can potentially reduce your tools budget by 50 percent or more—a savings of more than a million dollars over the first year for the typical mid-sized Gigamon customer1. The charts below show the cumulative tool spend savings over five years for two data centers with various tool types.

The ROI payback period to implement traffic optimization is typically less than nine months1 with the potential for millions of dollars in cost savings over the lifetime of your tools. In some cases, the investment pays for itself on day one through maintenance cost savings.
