Gigamon and Cisco Strengthen Network Threat Detection and Response with New Integration
Global leaders in network visibility and infrastructure analytics, Gigamon and Cisco have announced a new integration to boost network threat detection and response in an advanced environment. Together, the companies will work on Network threat detection to simplify network security with unequaled visibility, behavioral-based detection and informed rapid response options for InfoSec teams.
As part of the deal, the two companies will expand the integration of Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT and Cisco SecureX. The integration acts to optimize network security through accelerated threat detection and response (NDR).
At the time of this announcement, Karl Van den Bergh, Chief Marketing Officer at Gigamon said, “Our integration with an industry leader such as Cisco further enhances the value of the ThreatINSIGHT NDR solution in the battle for network security.”
Karl added, “In today’s highly dynamic environments, the integration and optimization of best-in-class solutions is vital to the real-time detection and mitigation of emerging threats.”
In addition, the new Network Threat Detection and Response platform provides expanded attack surface and resources that are stretched thin, now more than ever. This benefits InfoSec teams who consistently need a Threat and Security analytics platform consisting of integrated, advanced security solutions to combat attackers and secure their organizations.
Both ThreatINSIGHT and SecureX are CLoud-native solutions, which means their integration delivers a seamless implementation with zero tool maintenance and advanced security measures.
InfoSec team derive Immediate benefits, that include:
Simplified Network Security
Incident responders will have the data they need to effectively manage threats within one unified interface with seamless integration, thus eliminating the challenges of hopping between multiple piecemeal security solutions.
Improved Detection & Response Times
ThreatINSIGHT, powered by machine learning and behavioral analytics, empowers security analysts to identify hidden and emerging threats automatically while allowing immediate mitigation using the Cisco SecureX platform.
Maximized Solution Value
Critical during times of budget uncertainty, the ThreatINSIGHT and SecureX integration immediately increases the value and utilization of Cisco Amp for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella, Cisco Firewalls, Cisco Email Security, Cisco Web Security, Cisco ThreatGrid and other Cisco products for InfoSec teams when hunting and responding to threats.
Cisco and Gigamon Cover Blind Spots against Cyber Attacks
Chris Kissel, IDC Research Director, Security & Risk Products says –
“To avoid security blind spots and protect against cyber threats, organizations need visibility into all devices, not just those with endpoint detection and response (EDR) that the client installed, enabling detection of hidden and emerging threats, which is especially important amid today’s remote workforce.”
Chris added, “The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation and unintentionally expanded organizations’ attack surfaces. By integrating network detection and response (NDR), organizations can make informed decisions with platforms to carry out those actions to ensure (a) strong ROI for their security stack.”
