March 28, 2019

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 28, 2019--Gigamon Inc. (“ Gigamon ”), the essential element of network and security infrastructure, providing pervasive visibility to network traffic across physical, virtual, and cloud environments, is proud to announce significant customer adoption, industry recognition and industry analyst support of their Gigamon Insight™ security solution. Gigamon Insight enables SecOps and NetOps teams to efficiently and accurately detect, hunt and investigate potential threats to enterprise networks.

Mimecast, a cloud cybersecurity and resilience provider for IT service organizations recently implemented the Insight solution to deliver a trusted single source of actionable network traffic intelligence to help protect itself from possible threats against its corporate network.

“It’s given us better visibility to our network from a single pane,” said Mark O’Hare, Chief Information Security Officer of Mimecast, a cloud cybersecurity and resilience provider for IT service organizations. “We’ve learned to rely on Gigamon Insight,” O’Hare added, “Because we can take what we see at face value.”

At a large US retailer, which recently implemented Insight to efficiently solve security and operational challenges, their Director of Information Security commented, “Insight detections are actionable, even the ones I design myself, and with the flexibility of the Insight Query Language, I can filter out noise effectively.”

Gigamon Insight recently gained momentum by receiving multiple industry awards, including:

  • EMA’s Top 3 Award, which is presented to vendors that are best aligned with today’s customer priorities and pain points. Gigamon Insight security analytics were recognized for enhancing incident investigations and identifying advanced threats.
  • Cyber Defense Magazine, which recognized Insight as one of the Most Innovative Products of the Year for the significant role the Insight solution can play in defending enterprise networks against malicious activity.
  • CRN’s Security 100, which is the Channel’s ultimate in-depth look at the top 100 channel-centric security solution vendors

“The Gigamon cloud-based Insight solution improves network security by correlating large amounts of filtered network traffic with operational flows and security information to detect, prioritize and respond to the most urgent threats,” said Eric Ogren, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research. “We believe that organizations modernizing their security operations should be evaluating cloud-delivered network visibility, detection and response capabilities.”

“This level of customer, industry and analyst recognition reflects the dedicated efforts of our world-class team and we are encouraged by the progress we’ve made. Looking forward, Gigamon is perfectly positioned to help manage and secure network data at the speeds required to support the digital transformation, where organizations must run fast and stay secure,” said Shane Buckley, President and Chief Operating Officer of Gigamon. “I’m truly excited to work with our technology and channel partners to deliver leading edge security solutions that shift the balance of power from an evolving cast of threat actors back to the network defenders.”
