Gigamon and Endace Partner to Improve Network Traffic Visibility for Performance and Security Analytics
LONDON, Aug. 14, 2018 — Endace, a specialist in high-speed network recording, traffic playback and analytics hosting, and Gigamon, a company helping organizations improve their security stance, today announced a technology partnership to dramatically improve visibility into network traffic for SecOps, NetOps and DevOps teams.
The partnership brings together the EndaceProbe Analytics Platform and the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform to give analysts the complete packet-level visibility they need to quickly and conclusively investigate and respond to security threats and remediate network and application performance issues.
Typically, analysts often struggle to uncover the evidence they need to quickly determine the root cause of cyber threats, breaches and network or application performance problems so they can respond appropriately. This is becoming more and more challenging as threat actors increasingly leverage encrypted traffic streams to hide evidence of their activity.
The GigaSECURE platform, a next generation network packet broker, delivers customers total control over how they direct traffic to their security and performance monitoring solutions. It enables filtering, load-balancing and decryption of encrypted traffic in addition to other features. EndaceProbes accurately record network traffic at full line rate and provide high-performance hosting for network security and performance analytics solutions in Application Dock the EndaceProbe’s built-in hosting VM hosting environment.
By combining the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform with EndaceProbes customers can accurately record every packet on all segments of their network and decrypt encrypted traffic before it is delivered to hosted analytics applications and recorded by EndaceProbes.
“Investigating security threats or troubleshooting performance problems can be a slow, challenging and inconclusive process if you don’t have access to the packets,” said Stuart Wilson, CEO of Endace. “With the Endace and Gigamon partnership, customers have access to a highly scalable solution that delivers the definitive evidence they need to rapidly and accurately investigate and resolve issues.”
Phil Griston, Senior Director of Partner Marketing and Development at Gigamon, commented: “Combining the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform with EndaceProbes gives our mutual customers total control over, and visibility into, the traffic on their networks. They can direct traffic with absolute precision to the EndaceProbe platforms on their network for analysis and recording. And control traffic flows to the security and performance analytics solutions they have deployed – both hosted on their EndaceProbes or standalone.”
Endace’s multifunctional Analytics Platform can host 3rd-party network analytics applications while simultaneously recording a 100% accurate Network History, enabling fast, accurate detection, investigation and analysis of network security and performance issues.
The platform enables agile deployment of analytics functions and dramatically reduces OPEX and CAPEX costs by consolidating datacenter hardware. Hosted applications can analyze live or historical traffic. Global customers include banks, healthcare, telcos, broadcasters, retailers, web giants, governments and military.
Gigamon is the company leading the convergence of networking and security operations to help organizations reduce the complexity and increase efficiency of their security stack. The Company’s GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform is a next generation network packet broker that helps customers make threats more visible across cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments, deploy resources faster and maximize the performance of their security tools. Global 2000 companies and government agencies rely on Gigamon solutions to stop tool sprawl and save costs.
