Bandura Cyber and Gigamon Deliver Threat Intelligence-Fueled Network Protection to the Enterprise

November 6, 2018

COLUMBIA, Md. & ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--Bandura Cyber, which pioneered the Threat Intelligence Gateway (TIG) industry in part with the U.S. Department of Defense, today announced a strategic integration with Gigamon to deliver an all-encompassing solution targeted at reducing security alert fatigue and placing control over the attack surface back in the hands of the enterprise. Integrated with the GigaSECURE ® Security Delivery Platform, the Bandura Threat Intelligence Gateway (TIG™) gives enterprises an easy way to keep millions of known threats off their infrastructures, helping to make existing security controls more effective and efficient.

By leveraging vast threat intelligence repositories, block-list automation and precision geo-IP blocking, the Bandura TIG provides advanced protection ahead of the firewall, the attacker and the threat. The Gigamon-Bandura Joint Solution automatically defends against tens of millions of potentially harmful IPs and domains at line speeds before they reach a firewall. With Bandura TIG, noisy known-threats will be blocked, and firewalls can focus resources on complex threats.

“Firewalls were not designed to take on the tens of millions of internet threats in play today. At most they can handle a few hundred thousand threat indicators at a time. Our integration with Bandura is purpose-built to operationalize the vast amount of threat intelligence available and ease a traditionally overwhelmed form of security,” said Adrian Liu, Director of Alliances and Business Development at Gigamon.

Liu adds, “Today’s firewalls can only leverage a limited amount of external threat intelligence requiring users to either operate with a subset of intelligence or expend more expensive deep packet inspection processor cycles to block the large volume of known threats. Our purpose-built integration with Bandura helps increase firewall performance by reducing their workload and operationalizing real-time threat intelligence. The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform enhances the value of Bandura TIG by delivering crucial visibility and control to the architecture.”

Benefits of The Gigamon-Bandura Joint Solution include:

Enhanced visibility and easy access to traffic from physical, virtual and public cloud networks through the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform inline bypass functionality supports failover protection and maintains traffic continuity for the Bandura TIG in the event of a network outage or tool failure Automates aggregation and updating of threat intelligence from top global providers and blacklist feeds Blocks millions of known threats before they hit the firewall, significantly improving firewall performance Reduces the attack surface and alert overload, and stops critical data losses with near-zero latency Improves firewalls’ return on investment (ROI) and enables a greater return on existing threat intelligence investments

“Security staff and firewalls are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of threats and alerts being introduced to the network, and increasingly look to threat intelligence and automation tools to solve the problem,” adds Bandura’s Chief Strategy Officer, Todd Weller. “We are very excited to join forces with Gigamon to offer an integrated solution that eases the pressure on firewalls and reduces the overall attack surface.”

Bandura is attending Gigamon’s Cybersecurity Summit in New York City this coming Wednesday, November 7, 2018. You can request to connect with the Bandura team while they are in NYC here.
