GigaSECURE® Cloud for OpenStack

Intelligent network traffic visibility for OpenStack

Acquire, Optimize and Distribute Selected Traffic to Security and Monitoring Tools

Now you can extend your security posture to OpenStack deployments and accelerate the time to detect and mitigate threats to applications — all while helping assure compliance.

  • Reduce complexity with one platform for visibility across the entire IT environment and with one consistent method to acquire network traffic and apply traffic intelligence before distributing to multiple tools
  • Increase ROI by reusing existing security tools across your entire infrastructure
  • Cost savings by using traffic intelligence to deliver the right traffic to the right tools
  • Centralized visibility for security monitoring of all projects in an enterprise
  • Gain insight into traffic traversing projects to effectively deliver summarized, critical data to security and monitoring tools

Network Visibility in OpenStack Environments

If you’ve built your own OpenStack cloud to reduce licensing costs and to avoid vendor lock in, then you’ll want to consider GigaSECURE Cloud for OpenStack.

GigaSECURE Cloud is comprised of multiple components that enable traffic acquisition, traffic aggregation, intelligence and distribution along with single-pane-of-glass orchestration and management of the solution:

  • The G-vTAP agent is a lightweight agent deployed in an OpenStack instance. The agent mirrors traffic from the production instance and sends the mirrored traffic to GigaVUE V Series nodes.
  • GigaVUE V Series are visibility nodes in OpenStack that aggregate select traffic of interest, optimize and distribute acquired traffic to multiple tools located anywhere.
  • GigaVUE-FM provides centralized orchestration and management across the entire enterprise including on OpenStack, VMware and public clouds (e.g. Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS). Traffic policies can be configured using a simple drag-and-drop user interface.

 

increased security

Increased Security

Centralized visibility for security monitoring of all projects in an enterprise. Security operations and incident response teams can use network visibility to rapidly detect and respond to threats, vulnerabilities and compliance violations across the enterprise.

reduced costs

Reduced Data Costs

Optimize costs with up to 100% visibility for security without increasing load on compute instances as more security tools are deployed. Acquire traffic once from compute instances and leverage traffic intelligence to optimize data to multiple tools.

operational agility

Operational Agility

One common platform for visibility across the entire IT environment enables consistent insight in OpenStack. Acquire network traffic with minimal impact to instance utilization and apply traffic intelligence before distributing to multiple tools for analysis.
