SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced a collaboration with RSA, the Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), to provide pervasive visibility into Software Defined Data Center traffic via Gigamon's new Security Delivery Platform, GigaSECURE®. Together the GigaSECURE platform and RSA Security Analytics provide pervasive visibility and actionable intelligence into physical and virtual network environments, including the VMware NSX™ platform.
"Customers need pervasive visibility into virtual East-West traffic in order to enforce policy and enable appropriate data center protection and risk remediation techniques, especially as more and more traffic moves through virtual environments," said Maor Franco, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at RSA. "Because GigaSECURE can reach and deliver relevant network traffic, RSA Security Analytics is better able to discover attacks often missed by log-centric SIEM and signature-based tools by correlating packets with other security data from anywhere in the network."
RSA Security Analytics gives organizations the necessary context to help detect and respond to today's advanced attacks before they can inflict widespread damage. By delivering virtual traffic to RSA Security Analytics, GigaSECURE is designed to provide security operations teams with active visibility to detect, investigate and take timely and targeted action against advanced threats.
Commenting on the collaboration, Rod Stuhlmuller, Senior Director of Product Marketing in the networking and security business unit at VMware noted, "Our customers are looking to ecosystem partners such as Gigamon and RSA to deliver the best in class solutions that provide unified visibility across customers' virtual and physical environments. As more customers operationalize VMware NSX to improve security and IT agility, they can be confident that NSX is a platform that supports the security, visibility and troubleshooting solutions which they are already using in their environments."
GigaSECURE – The Industry's First Security Delivery Platform Optimized for RSA Security Analytics
As a platform, GigaSECURE is comprised of scalable hardware and software elements that give security administrators unparalleled visibility and capability for bolstering security effectiveness. By delivering targeted traffic to RSA Security Analytics, organizations will have enhanced visibility of both virtual and physical network traffic and are better able to manage this traffic through a single console, correlated to one security tool.
Additional key benefits of GigaSECURE include:
- Infrastructure-wide reach via Gigamon's GigaVUE-VM and GigaVUE nodes to feed RSA Security Analytics with pervasive traffic visibility;
- NetFlow record generation that is unsampled;
- Application Session Filtering, which eliminates unwanted traffic, such as streaming video from the examined traffic flows;
- SSL decryption for faster threat analysis.
"Massive amounts of traffic flows through software-defined data center environments. This means pervasive visibility across the entire data center network is critical," said Johnnie Konstantas, Director of Security Solutions at Gigamon. "The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform extends the reach of RSA Security Analytics to include all network data and metadata, which simply makes for better security information and event management."
