SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon ® (NYSE: GIMO), a leader in traffic visibility solutions with the innovative Unified Visibility Fabric™, will be demonstrating its flow-level visibility NetFlow application and packet-based monitoring solutions at the Gigamon booth #1021 at RSA Conference, February 24-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
As a part of the Applications Layer of the Unified Visibility Fabric architecture, the NetFlow Generation application creates NetFlow records, then sends the information to one or multiple NetFlow collectors or analyzers whether for network or application performance or security. NetFlow data allows security professionals to look at patterns of traffic and investigate suspect or anomalous activity. The application can maximize the efficiency of the network itself by assuming the processing necessary to generate NetFlow information that had previously been dedicated within the switch, thereby reducing the burden to the network. In addition to demonstrating their NetFlow generation capabilities, Gigamon will be demonstrating its packet-based visibility solutions for inline and out-of-band threat prevention and intrusion detection technologies.
Gigamon's Visibility Fabric can support simultaneous deployment of IPS and IDS tools, inline tool redundancy, packet slicing and masking for secure storage as well as traffic forwarding based on application-layer keywords to help manage the amount of Big Data which can accelerate post-event analysis by network forensics tools.
"Gigamon has a storied history as an independent and agnostic technology partner, which allows us to work closely with a wide range of security and forensics tool vendors to deliver the highest value security monitoring and analytics solutions for our joint customers," said Peter Finter, Chief Marketing Officer at Gigamon. "With the addition of the NetFlow Generation application, our Visibility Fabric provides a single source of unified packet- and flow-level visibility for inline and out-of-band security. This is not only a first in the security monitoring space, but enables us to deliver an additional level value to both our customers and our partner ecosystem."In addition, Gigamon's Ecosystem Partners will also be presenting their solutions and how they utilize Gigamon's Visibility Fabric to enable pervasive security.

Gigamon's Visibility Fabric Ecosystem Partners includes companies and organizations that are committed to making network traffic more visible and the analytics, management and monitoring of the network more intelligent, efficient and versatile for IT and business leaders.
