Gigamon started trials for a solution that allows enterprises to see information traversing public clouds.

Gigamon’s visibility solutions for public cloud kicks off with field trials of its Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) offering.

With Gigamon’s visibility solution, enterprises gain flexibility to design and provision the public cloud monitoring infrastructure that meets their business needs with the freedom to choose the most appropriate public cloud provider to address their specific requirements.

As part of the initial field trials, AWS users gain immediate benefit from the Gigamon Visibility Fabric by:

- Reducing network complexity – by centralizing how traffic is forwarded to network and security operations centers (NoCs, SoCs), regardless of whether it originates in the private or public cloud

- Optimizing enterprise performance – by providing the means to analyze utilization of AWS instances

- Ensuring comprehensive security – by enabling security inspection of traffic flowing among AWS workloads by forwarding that traffic to premised or cloud-hosted security devices

- Saving time and resources – by expediting troubleshooting and centralizing security and performance management tasks

- Validating compliance – through continuous monitoring of and enabling reporting of public cloud-hosted resource access and use

The Gigamon solution enables IT organizations to monitor enterprise workloads where it is most advantageous based on their needs. For some, this means monitoring within the AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), or at a dedicated VPC that contains the necessary tools. For others, it may mean centralizing the capability on premises or private infrastructure.

“Gigamon is a market pioneer who has transformed the world of IT through the power of visibility. Whether it’s delivering more effective and efficient security, bringing unprecedented subscriber awareness to service providers or scaling performance management, our Visibility Fabric has been at the center of helping our customers navigate disruptive changes around their next-generation infrastructure,” said Paul Hooper, CEO, Gigamon. “With this milestone, Gigamon enters a new phase in executing our company vision. Today, we are expanding our market yet again to the thousands of businesses that want to confidently and securely host their IT infrastructure on public clouds.”

Participation in the Gigamon traffic visibility for AWS trials opens today.
