Traded in other countries:NGM.Germany,
Gigamon LLC was founded in 2004. The Company develops a solution that delivers pervasive and dynamic intelligent visibility of traffic across networks. Its solution, which the Company refers to as its Traffic Visibility Fabric, consists of distributed network appliances that enable an advanced level of visibility, modification and control of network traffic. Its Fabric enables IT organizations to forward traffic from network and server infrastructure to management, analysis, compliance and security tools in a manner that is optimized for specific uses or functions. Its patented Flow Mapping technology identifies and directs incoming traffic to single or multiple tools based on user-defined rules that can be managed from a centralized management console. Its GigaSMART platform extends the value and intelligence of the Fabric by providing a range of software applications to modify, manipulate, transform, filter, correlate and sample packets. Its Fabric is designed to help organizations optimize the reliability, performance and security of their physical and virtual network infrastructure, minimize capital investment in management, analysis, compliance and security tools, reduce operating expenses and realize greater value from existing tools that are deployed throughout their networks.
