Visibility is foundational to any effective security posture, particularly visibility into all network communications, which is the ground truth of threat activities. However, modern IT infrastructure is increasingly complex and is constantly changing, leading to security blind spots.

Hawk by Gigamon is the one single platform that provides any network-based access to all north-south-east-west network traffic; from datacenters to public cloud to containers.

Today’s network traffic is encrypted and threat actors often rely on encryption for all stages of their attack. Gigamon provides the ability to decrypt network traffic for inspection, while maintaining privacy requirements by managing traffic flow to tools and masking out privately identifiable information (PII).

Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT is a unique network threat detection and response platform. The Guided-SaaS solution not only eliminates systems maintenance tasks such as patching, upgrades and false-positive tuning, it includes access to threat experts who guide customers through specific incident and general posture best practices. Lastly, ThreatINSIGHT offers 365-day of network history, which is more than ten times higher than any other SaaS NDR.

Gigamon has been awarded over 125 technology patents and enjoys world-class customer satisfaction with more than 4,000 organizations, including over 80 percent of the Fortune 100 and hundreds of government and educational organizations worldwide. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Gigamon operates globally.

How we are different

- As the first company to deliver unified network visibility and analytics on all information-in-motion, Gigamon builds solutions that help businesses consolidate, optimize and scale their IT infrastructure. Gigamon achieves this through a collaborative and open company culture that celebrates the diversity of its employees. Gigamon also empowers the success of its employees by allowing them to positively influence each other on a daily basis—constantly learning, growing and excelling as a team as a result.

- Information security and incident response teams struggle because they can’t see what is happening on an increasingly distributed network, accelerated by the pandemic, can’t detect threats with high confidence, and can’t respond to attacks quickly and effectively due to this lack of visibility and context. Recent studies show 75% of SOC analysts report burnout due to high-pressure environments and 69% of SOC analysts cite the lack of visibility into network traffic as a top reason for ineffectiveness. Gigamon addresses this by eliminating blind spots – something extremely difficult, or even impossible to do in a complex and ever-changing IT infrastructure. It provides the foundation for all other security solutions.

- Lastly, as of 2021, Gigamon is also the only Guided-SaaS NDR vendor on the market providing organizations with expert-level guidance from Gigamon Technical Success Managers (TSM), who are seasoned incident response practitioners that help with use case expansion, alignment to industry best practices and user-relevant support. Furthermore, ThreatINSIGHT is supported by the world-class Gigamon Applied Threat Research (ATR) team, delivering leading-edge detection capabilities.
