Gigamon Enables Multi-tenant Visibility

Gigamon announced the latest release of its GigaVUE H Series software, Version 3.1, offering enhancements to Flow Mapping as well as support for role-based access control and advanced workflows for independent and concurrent monitoring policy configurations. This provides the ability to virtualize the Visibility Fabric.  The company said these new capabilities will enable enterprises to offer Visibility as a Service to internal IT tenants, who will gain the power to dynamically change monitoring and traffic visibility policies on a per-organization or per-tenant basis without impacting other departmental monitoring polices and while maintaining compliance and privacy.

"The notion of multi-tenancy has made its way from the public cloud space into enterprise IT infrastructure as well," said Shehzad Merchant, Chief Strategy Officer at Gigamon. "This solution enables network administrators and services teams to virtualize the Visibility Fabric and offer Visibility as a Service to the different IT departments."

The GigaVUE H Series 3.1 software update is targeted for availability for current and future GigaVUE H Series customers on September 30, 2013.
