Profile: Gigamon Inc (GIMO.N)
Gigamon Inc., incorporated on January 2, 2009, offers solutions that deliver visibility and control of traffic across networks. The Company's Visibility Fabric solution consists of a distributed system of nodes that enable a level of visibility, modification and control of network traffic. The Visibility Fabric solution is consisted of data center and central office physical appliances, virtual nodes in virtualized or private cloud environments and small form-factor remote site appliances that enable pervasive visibility of network infrastructures. Its Visibility Fabric enables organizations to improve their cyber-security posture by leveraging the power of network visibility to establish visibility within the perimeter of their information technology (IT) infrastructure; mobile service providers to gain visibility into their IT infrastructure enabling them to reduce operational costs, and provide services for the subscribers, and IT departments to enhance the performance of their network management, analysis and compliance tools. The Visibility Fabric is deployed using its GigaVUE family of products. It has presence in the United States; Rest of Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.
The Company's GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform enables security teams and IT personnel to gain advanced visibility into their IT infrastructure by forwarding selected traffic of interest from network, server and remote location infrastructure to security, management, analysis and compliance tools in a manner that is optimized for specific uses or functions. The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform enables the delivery of network, data as a service, for multiple security tools. The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform consists of over six blocks: Visibility Fabric nodes; a metadata (NetFlow/IPFIX) record generation engine, which summarizes network traffic into flow records for consumption by the tools; an SSL decryption engine, which enables receivers to inspect secure sockets layer (SSL) encrypted traffic for malware; an Application Session Filtering engine, which extracts entire application sessions containing specific patterns of interest to be delivered to the tools; an advanced set of capabilities, which allow multiple security tools to be placed either in line with the network or out-of-band without compromising network availability, and a management and orchestration platform, which exposes a set of application programmer interfaces (APIs) to facilitate integration between the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform and network security tools. The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform also features additional software and hardware elements that are customized for security deployments.
The Company's product portfolio has a range of components, including a distributed set of physical and virtual Visibility Fabric nodes that collect and move traffic, GigaSMART software applications that provide traffic intelligence and a Visibility Fabric management software layer called GigaVUE-FM. GigaVUE fabric nodes are appliances that form the foundation of a distributed fabric. The Company's Flow Mapping technology identifies and directs incoming traffic to single or multiple tools based on user-defined rules that can be managed from a centralized management console. The Company also offers a series of software applications called GigaSMART that can modify the network traffic of information managed by its Visibility Fabric. The Company's GigaSMART platform provides a range of software applications to modify, manipulate, transform, filter, correlate and sample network traffic. GigaSMART applications include Packet Slicing, Masking, Header Stripping, Packet De-Duplication, Correlation, SSL Decryption and FlowVUE.
The Company's GigaVUE H Series includes both blade-based modular chassis products, such as the GigaVUE-HC-2, GigaVUE-HD-4, and GigaVUE-HD-8, as well as fixed-configuration appliances, such as the GigaVue-HB-1. The GigaVUE-HC2 product is a 2 RU modular appliance that has a package of traffic intelligence powered by GigaSMART and all the Visibility Fabric services offered by GigaVUE-OS visibility software. The GigaVUE-HC2 also features integrated (internal) TAP modules that consolidate access points for secure backplane connectivity. The Company offers additional traffic control technology with its GigaStream technology that provides a traffic-distribution capability enabling traffic to be spread across a number of egress ports based on an operator-selected distribution algorithm. It provides customers with products that deliver visibility in various forms, including GigaVUE-TA, GigaVUE-VM and GigaVUE-HB1.
The Company's GigaVUE-TA series forms the physical edge of the visibility infrastructure. GigaVUE-VM forms the virtual edge of the visibility infrastructure and offers visibility within virtual networks and monitors traffic between virtual machines. GigaVUE-VM, together with GigaSMART applications, such as Adaptive Packet Filtering and Header Stripping, provides visibility into network virtualization deployments powered by VMware hypervisor solution, NSX, and enables VMware NSX customers to extend the value of their physical tools to virtual networks. The GigaVUE-HB1 is an entry level visibility appliance that can extend traffic visibility to more remote portions of the network running critical applications where GigaSMART intelligence is required.
The Company's G-TAP series of TAPs provide non-intrusive access to physical traffic at various network interface speeds, such as approximately one gigabyte (Gb) (Copper or Fiber), 10Gb and 100Gb. The GigaVUE G Series consists of a range of small form-factor traffic visibility appliances. Together, the Visibility Fabric nodes provide traffic aggregation, filtering, replication and traffic intelligence capabilities to optimize traffic for the tools that manage, analyze and secure the network. Its G-SECURE products provide in-line packet distribution designed for use with security-based tools, such as intrusion prevention systems (IPS). The GigaVUE-FM is a software application that provides centralized management and a common policy framework for the Visibility Fabric or Security Delivery Platform deployments. GigaVUE-FM delivers a single pane-of-glass view of all the physical and virtual nodes across the Visibility Fabric, while also providing a wizard-based approach for configuring Flow Mapping and GigaSMART traffic policies. The Company offers a range of supplemental components and accessories, including modules, cables and transceivers. In addition to centralized management and control, GigaVUE-FM features fabric-wide reporting, scheduling capabilities, backup and restore functions, and enhanced monitoring capabilities to monitor and troubleshoot hot spots in the visibility infrastructure.
The Company competes with Cisco Systems, Inc., Brocade Communications Systems, Inc., Arista Networks, Inc., Netscout and Ixxia.
