Gigamon announced an expansive set of new capabilities to the Gigamon Hawk Deep Observability Pipeline.

GigaVUE 6.0, the software powering Gigamon Hawk, democratizes security delivery across networking, security, and cloud operations teams while dramatically reducing cross-platform cost and complexity.

Gigamon Hawk helps IT teams scale up and scale out with confidence, eliminate security and performance blind spots across cloud traffic and unmanaged hosts, and gain application transparency to secure against threats-in-motion across distributed hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure. Gigamon Hawk amplifies the power of observability by accessing network traffic at the source, whether virtual, container, or physical, and efficiently aggregates, optimizes, and enriches it while serving actionable, network-level intelligence to any tooling, anywhere.

Today’s release introduces a series of major advancements including:

- Next-Gen Container Network Visibility – GigaVUE now enables the acquisition of container traffic, delivering the industry’s first universal container tap (UCT) solution deployable with any container network interface (CNI) and any container orchestration, powered by the enhanced Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) for network-level observability with minimal overhead. Deep observability for security and performance can now follow the workload no matter the ephemerality or scale of container-based micro-services.

- Application Metadata Integration Framework – Gigamon Hawk application metadata engine integrates directly with leading observability platforms, including Dynatrace, New Relic, and Sumo Logic, using JavaScript object notation (JSON) and Kafka. This integration enables existing observability tools to perform new security functions, such as identifying rogue services, activities, and illegal crypto mining.

- Cloud-Scale Network Telemetry Processing – The new GigaVUE-HC1 Plus visibility appliance, an underlying component of Gigamon Hawk, delivers twice the pipeline processing performance in half the physical footprint and power requirements, compared to the previous generation. This purpose-built appliance can efficiently and economically process network telemetry by aggregating telemetry from physical, virtual, and/or container workloads, including telemetry from public cloud workloads.

“Today’s GigaVUE 6.0 software release provides IT organizations with next-generation, actionable network-level intelligence that delivers granularity up to the application layer for all workloads including private and public cloud and all container environments,” said Michael Dickman, CPO at Gigamon. “Our deep observability pipeline is the realization of our vision to bring rich, ‘ground truth’ network intelligence to our customers, allowing them to solve their most pressing security and operational challenges to manage distributed hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure efficiently and effectively.”
