Gigamon Inc said its automated solution for visibility into traffic patterns within VMware NSX powered software defined data centres is shipping.
The GigaVUE-VM integration with VMware NSX is certified and on general availability.,
While utilising the compelling benefits of a software-defined data centre architecture based upon the VMware NSX platform, customers can now leverage the GigaVUE-VM solution to enable enhanced and configurable visibility into their workload traffic patterns.
GigaVUE-VM, the virtual visibility component of Gigamon’s GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform, uses VMware NSX Dynamic Service Insertion and NetX API integration to deliver pervasive and automated reach to virtual traffic in the SDDC.
“Customers looking to operationalise VMware NSX technology want to use the proven threat intelligence tools and troubleshooting solutions already in use in their environments,” said Michael Adler, Vice President, Product, NetWitness Suite at RSA. “The RSA NetWitness Suite is engineered to monitor a broader set of attack vectors. Working in conjunction with the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform, security teams can gain a deeper understanding of an attack for rapid detection and response before the attack can impact their businesses. This is especially critical as more traffic and potential threats move across virtualised environments.”
The GigaSECURE platform with VMware NSX enables organisations to configure and automate the capture of virtual network traffic and delivery to their network and security tools. Specific NSX traffic policies can be configured and associated with the security groups in the micro-segmented deployment. As security groups expand in scale, NSX automatically copies the virtual traffic to Gigamon’s GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform for replication and optimisation before delivery to security tools.
“VMware is pleased to enable Gigamon as part of a strong NSX Ecosystem of partners helping customers realise the tremendous benefits of SDDC and Network virtualisation” said Geoff Huang, senior director of product marketing, networking and security business unit at VMware. “The GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform provides additional capabilities for traffic capture and interface to other tools directly benefiting the operational metrics of a software-defined data centre.”
