Stronger Security Starts with Network Visibility

Fix the gap in your security architecture.

Fact: Your Tools Are Not Getting All of Your Traffic

You’ve carefully planned your network security architecture and purchased the latest, most advanced security tools. But that’s not enough.  

  • Up to 50 percent of traffic never reaches your security tools because of dropped packets
  • Malware can hide inside encrypted SSL/TLS traffic
  • Attackers use port spoofing to elude perimeter detection

An effective security posture requires seeing all traffic across your network — not just a fraction. You need to know what the threats are, and how best to respond. The Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric makes it easy by giving you one platform for deep and pervasive visibility across your entire network, and providing analytical insights for efficient threat hunting, investigation and forensics.

The Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric

SPAN Ports = Dropped Packets

How you supply network traffic to your security tools is critical. If you rely on SPAN ports to send network traffic to your tools, your security tools are not getting everything they need for proper analysis.

The 100 Percent Approach: Network TAPs Together with a Network Packet Broker

A better way to send all traffic to your tools is by using network TAPs together with a next generation network packet broker, which sits between your tools and the infrastructure layer. This visibility architecture ensures your analytics tools get 100 percent of the data they need.

You Cannot Wait Any Longer for TLS Decryption

Up to 80 percent of internet traffic will be encrypted by the end of 2019.[1]. Cybercriminals use encryption to conceal malware, hide command-and-control traffic and cloak the exfiltration of stolen data.  Given the amount of encrypted traffic and the threat vector it now poses, you need a way to efficiently decrypt traffic, share it with tools and then re-encrypt it.

SSL/TLS Decryption centrally decrypts all network traffic, taking that burden off expensive security tools, and exposes hidden threats, malware and data exfiltration attempts.

If You’re Not Seeing Apps, You’re Not Seeing Threats

Your tools need full network and application visibility, without any blind spots. They also need the ability to select only relevant network traffic to maximize utilization. This is now possible without taking manual steps to identify applications based on network traffic.

  • Application Filtering Intelligence sends only relevant application traffic to security tools while filtering out the rest; use existing investments to secure east-west traffic.
  • Application Visualization accurately identifies more than 3,000 applications using deep packet inspection so shadow IT activities and port spoofing attempts don’t pass unnoticed.
  • Application Metadata Intelligence provides over 5,000 metadata attributes, giving your SIEM and other security tools an unfair advantage over attackers.

Hunt for Attackers, on Your Terms

Get ahead of investigating suspicious behavior, proactively hunt for potential risks, and be able to direct a fast and effective response to active threats. Gigamon Insight is a cloud-native network detection and response solution built for the rapid detection of threat activity. With Insight you can:

  • Prioritize what matters: Get high confidence detections and reduce mean time to detection and response
  • Investigate in real time: Quickly triage alerts and gather intelligence to direct efficient response activities
  • Gain broad situational awareness: Get coverage across physical, virtual and cloud networks
  • Focus teams on threats, not tools: Get started faster with plug-n-play deployment and zero-maintenance
