SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced the release of its new Gigamon® Visibility App for Splunk, which provides Visibility Fabric™ health and analytics, as well as visibility and troubleshooting of Gigamon infrastructure within a Splunk environment. Complementing this, the company launched a new application for GigaVUE-FM, "FabricVUE Traffic Analyzer," which provides fabric-centric traffic visualization that helps identify top conversations, applications and network traffic end-points.
Gigamon Visibility App for Splunk allows a Splunk® Enterprise administrator to collect, store, visualize, and analyze Gigamon Visibility Fabric related data. By allowing the Gigamon Visibility App for Splunk app to access a Visibility Fabric, an administrator can have full visibility and reporting across the entire Gigamon environment. Splunk Software enables automated searches that collect and store aggregated network statistics data from ports and maps within the environment. The map explorer helps an administrator to visualize the relationships within their environment.
"Network complexity is fundamentally changing the way we see, react and respond to network traffic," said Emilio Umeoka, vice president of worldwide partners, Splunk. "Having a Gigamon Visibility App for Splunk helps ensure that IT operations get deeper insights across their Gigamon environment for increased security and operational performance of their networks."
"IT silos are breaking down. The historic separation between NetOps and SecOps continues to disappear as both teams work together to ensure network performance, high availability and strong security," said Dan Conde, Analyst at ESG. "The Gigamon Visibility App for Splunk is an excellent example of technologies that help bridge the NetOps and SecOps divide."

"By leveraging Splunk solutions, our customers gain new insights and seamless capabilities that give them an optimal and actionable view of their network traffic."
FabricVUE Traffic Analyzer – The Case for Fabric-Centric Visualization
Several challenges facing IT operations management revolve around the number of tools to manage, identification of the top talkers in the network, and how to monitor traffic that occurs outside of tool reach. Addressing these, Gigamon today launched FabricVUE Traffic Analyzer. This new, GigaVUE-FM license-based application sources IPFIX/Netflow records and uses GigaSMART traffic intelligence to analyze both the traffic sent to tools, as well as traffic not being monitored by tools, thereby providing IT operations teams with greater visualization of their network traffic. This reduces mean time to resolution while providing increased visibility and control over their Visibility Fabric.
Both the Gigamon Visibility App for Splunk and GigaVUE Traffic Analyzer are available now from authorized Gigamon channel partners worldwide.
