SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon™, the leading global provider of Intelligent Data Access Networking™, today announced that IntercontinentalExchange has selected GigaVUE to provide secure access and complete visibility to their network.

IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE) operates leading regulated exchanges, trading platforms and clearing houses serving the global markets for agricultural, credit, currency, emissions, energy and equity index markets. The company offers an integrated electronic trading platform for side-by-side trading of products in both futures and OTC markets, together with clearing, post trade, and market data services.

Seeking a comprehensive, centralized and cost-effective way to access and monitor secure mission critical traffic on their 10Gbps network, ICE deployed The GigaVUE-2404 Data Access Switch. "The GigaVUE-2404 solution worked while delivering quick ROI for ICE. GigaVUE's packet filtering technology is the most robust in the marketplace today," said Jose Veras, Senior Security Engineer.

The robust packet filtering was an important feature on the GigaVUE-2404 because ICE had both 10Gbps and 1Gbps network security and compliance tools.  By filtering out unwanted packets network engineers were able to effectively monitor 10Gbps traffic with 1Gbps or 10Gbps tools at full line rate.

"The GigaVUE-2404 provided the team with the ability to seamlessly send data to newer 10Gbps monitoring tools and legacy 1Gbps monitoring tools simultaneously, using Gigamon's low-latency multi-tool maps and filtering. The filtering capability dramatically increased the efficiency of the security and compliance tools as they now receive easier to identify data at a more manageable data rate," said Kevin Jablonski, Gigamon's VP of Marketing and Business Development. "We understand our customers need to show an immediate ROI and Gigamon continues to deliver that result."
