Gigamon VP Delivers Cloud Message at 2011 Dallas NetworkWorld IT Roadmap

The Age of Traffic Visibility within the Cloud has Arrived

Sep 13, 2011, 17:31 ET from Gigamon

SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon®, the world's leading provider of Network Traffic Visibility solutions, announced that Paul Hooper, Vice President of Marketing, will deliver the Cloud track session at the IT Roadmap 2011 conference in Dallas today. Hooper's session is titled, "The Missing Ingredient within the Cloud: Visibility."  He will also be participating in an executive panel discussion at the same event titled, "Growing the Enterprise in the Cloud: An Executive Panel with John Burke."

Hooper's Cloud Visibility session will examine how enterprises can maintain and enhance network traffic visibility, which is essential for securing, monitoring and managing networks in the cloud. The only way to monitor and secure data moving within and between private and public clouds, and between physical and virtual environments, is to deploy technology that provides traffic visibility.  This is necessary to prevent data loss and corruption, network congestion or downtime, compliance violations, and malware.

"The Cloud is both a major opportunity and a legitimate challenge for organizations today," Hooper said.  "It delivers incredible advantages in scaling and economics, but until recently it also eliminated the visibility that IT Managers have over their network traffic. This becomes a dangerous situation, because you can't manage what you can't see, and if you can't manage your traffic, you may be exposed on many levels. I look forward to showing today's top IT Leaders how they can make the visible Cloud a reality today."

IT Roadmap 2011 will provide businesses with information on technology trends, like the cloud, to help in making educated IT choices. Paul's session on cloud visibility will begin at 11:25 a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2011, followed by his participation in the executive panel.
