Gigamon Broadens Strategic Partnerships

Data Access Networking Leader Teams with Data Management and Monitoring Tool Vendors to Deliver Access and Visibility into Enterprise and Service Provider Networks

San Francisco—Cisco Live 2009, Moscone Center Booth 237 - June 29, 2009 - Gigamon, the leading global provider of intelligent data access networking TM products, today revealed its broadened commitment to strategic partners in providing an unparalleled solution to gain greater visibility of any data, anytime, anywhere in the network. Gigamon’s enhanced offering with monitoring tool partners provides joint customers immediate ROI, attracting a substantial amount of new and returning business in the midst of the economic downturn.

Today’s enterprises struggle to find the balance between gaining visibility into oversubscribed networks and determining where and when to deploy compliance, security and performance monitoring tools. Gigamon’s GigaVUE® products work in parallel with partner solutions to deliver that much needed balance. Gigamon provides access to any network segment at any speed including 10Gig connections. Upon being installed, Gigamon can aggregate the data from multiple segments, filter on specific information within each packet and direct that information to all tools needing that information. Any tool can now be connected to the Gigamon GigaVUE anytime, which provides better monitoring in multiple areas simultaneously. The unique capabilities of Gigamon to aggregate, filter and divide data streams ensures every tool an easier-to-identify data flows at a more manageable data rate. This enhances the accuracy and efficiency of the tools.

“Gigamon understands the complicated and arduous tasks involved in managing a data network,” said Kevin Jablonski, senior director, business development at Gigamon. “Our customers are facing limited IT budgets and overtaxed data center resources. At the same time, they are also contending with federal regulations with stringent reporting requirements alongside the worst cyber threat landscape to date. Together with our monitoring tool partners, Gigamon ensures seamless delivery and parsing of data streams so that all tools are able to perform at optimal levels and key stakeholders are able to perform their organizational responsibilities.”
