Gigamon introduced NetFlow and IPFIX flow record generation for its AWS offering, enabling organizations to establish rapid and pervasive visibility into traffic traversing on AWS.

With this capability, enterprises can effectively deliver summarized, critical data to their security and monitoring tools.

The cpmany also announced that the Gigamon Visibility Platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS) achieved AWS Networking Competency status, a certification in the AWS Partner Network (APN) program.

A new GigaSMART traffic intelligence capability — standards-based, NetFlow and IPFIX record generation -- is now available for the Gigamon Visibility Platform on AWS. NetFlow and IPFIX are powerful technologies that are used by both security and network operations teams to extract summarized information on network traffic flows and deliver NetFlow to a large ecosystem of security and monitoring tools.

NetFlow and IPFIX generation is a popular feature in the GigaSMART suite of traffic intelligence applications. By generating flow records in NetFlow or IPFIX format, users can gain summarized insight into traffic traversing their virtual private cloud (VPC) instances. Security professionals can use unsampled NetFlow or IPFIX records generated by the Gigamon Visibility Platform to track every flow with precision.

Used in conjunction with the Gigamon Visibility Platform to gain full traffic visibility, enterprises can:

- Determine summarized information on source and destination of traffic, class of service and causes of congestion.

- Segregate and obfuscate sensitive information from being visible to security tools in order to protect privacy.

- Significantly decrease the cost of data transfer either to tools in a different VPCs or to tools on-premises.

- Accelerate the migration of mission-critical workloads on AWS by leveraging existing NetFlow and IPFIX-aware tools to track flows on the cloud.
