Gigamon is extending the visibility coverage of its GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform from large data centers to small enterprises and remote sites in distributed enterprises with the introduction of its GigaVUE-HC1 appliance.
GigaVUE-HC1 is a modular one rack unit visibility appliance with twelve 10 gigabit (Gb) interfaces, four 1Gb interfaces, two modular slots for expansion and GigaSMART hardware processing built into the base system. It uses the same GigaVUE-OS operating system that powers the Gigamon portfolio, supporting capabilities such as Flow Mapping, inline bypass and multiple GigaSMART traffic intelligence applications.
The new GigaVUE-HC1 appliance provides a centralized way to administer and manage all tools, whether inline or out-of-band, making it well suited for remote sites with independent tools, such as call centers. Gigamon said its enterprises and service providers can also use the GigaVUE-HC1 to selectively backhaul traffic flows and metadata of interest to centralized tools, enabling both consolidation
“Distributed and small enterprises are an often overlooked, yet an important market segment with specific visibility needs. GigaVUE-HC1 expands the scope of our successful GigaSECURE platform, enabling organizations to see more and increase the scope of security coverage,” said Ananda Rajagopal vice president of products, at Gigamon. “GigaVUE-HC1 delivers a rich combination of metadata and traffic intelligence with the flexibility to deploy both inline and out-of-band security tools, thereby reducing the time to deploy and maintain security tools at smaller sites.”
