Gigamon brings visibility to distributed enterprises

Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO) has introduced GigaVUE-HC1, which expands the reach of the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform from large data centers to small enterprises and remote sites in distributed enterprises, the company said.

The solution delivers pervasive visibility across distributed enterprises and enables improved effectiveness of existing security technologies. Service providers can gain real-time visibility at remote sites to provide expanded service assurance and add-on experiences to their subscribers.

Network security operations is evolving and becoming more difficult to implement. According to a recent Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) survey sponsored by Gigamon, 85 percent of surveyed respondents reported that the complexity of network security operations is as difficult, or more difficult, as it was two years ago, primarily due to increased traffic, more connected devices on the network and diversity of network and security technologies used to address emerging and known security threats. 75 percent of surveyed organizations felt their network visibility could be improved.

GigaVUE-HC1 is ideal for remote sites with independent tools, such as call centers, as it provides a centralized way to administer and manage all tools, whether inline or out-of-band. Enterprises and service providers can also use the GigaVUE-HC1 to selectively backhaul traffic flows and metadata of interest to centralized tools, enabling both consolidation and expanded coverage of their centralized tools.

Gigamon provides active visibility into physical and virtual network traffic, enabling stronger security and superior performance.
