Modern organizations are quickly shifting toward hybrid and multi-cloud deployments to accelerate the velocity of their digital transformation initiatives. However, most IT professionals don’t have visibility into their complex cloud infrastructures, leaving them without a clear, complete, and consistent view of their network and application data – and ultimately slowing their digital transformation journey. As a result, they must contend with an ever-increasing attack surface, continued application and network performance expectations, and escalating costs that can limit their ability to advance within the larger business ecosystem.

Providing visibility into all data-in-motion, including east-west traffic from containers and unmanaged devices – Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline equips organizations with the insights necessary to close this gap in visibility, and provide a complete and consistent security posture. The platform enables a unified view of data-in-motion to cloud tools through network application metadata. With visibility across all public and private cloud environments, Gigamon allows organizations to send rich, contextual network metadata for analysis so they have a complete picture of their network.

Additionally, Gigamon goes beyond current observability approaches that rely exclusively on the logging of metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT). The Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline helps organizations realize the full transformational promise of the cloud through deep observability. Deep observability enables IT teams to extend the value of existing cloud, security, and observability tools with real-time network intelligence derived from packets and flows. As a result, teams can support defense-in-depth and complete performance management across their hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructures.

By filling the visibility gap across cloud environments, Gigamon radically simplifies IT complexity brought on by the distributed workforce. This in turn ensures that organizations can deliver exceptional customer experiences, maintain their security and compliance posture, and accelerate cloud adoption.

How we are different

–Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline is the industry’s first elastic visibility and analytics fabric for all data-in-motion across any cloud network and accelerates innovation across hybrid cloud environments. With elastic visibility for any cloud, the Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline's visibility-as-code can be embedded into cloud automation to elastically scale-up and scale-out on demand, providing greater security, compliance, and performance which in turn supports digital transformation initiatives.

–Gigamon goes beyond current observability approaches that rely exclusively on the logging of metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) by providing organizations with deep observability capabilities for any network tool. This added value allows Gigamon to deliver a unified view of data-in-motion to cloud tools, including observability into east-west traffic containers and unmanaged devices through network application metadata.

–Gigamon has been integrated with AWS and other leading cloud platforms and tools, which provides a unified view across hybrid infrastructure that is easy for customers. Gigamon for AWS includes features such as elastic visibility that automatically scales out to capture traffic from new EC2 instances, efficient distribution of mirrored traffic to multiple tool destinations, and the ability to extract and store network and application metadata in an AWS storage bucket for near real-time or historical analysis.
