Build Visibility into Multi-Tiered Network Security

Your network today is made up of physical and virtual components, yet the chances are slim that you have unified visibility across your physical and virtual assets. You need end-to-end visibility from the perimeter to the core of the data center, from remote sites to the cloud. Achieve pervasive traffic visibility with a platform that leverages network TAPs that collect traffic on both physical and virtual networks, and sends it to intelligent nodes that then process, filter, and forward traffic for your security, network, and application analyzers. This accommodates agile scalability and reconfiguration in response to evolving threats without affecting the production network.

A modern approach to security needs to start with one assumption – you have been breached. While consensus has been gaining on the breach assumption for some time, changes to security architecture have been slow. Security still operates in the traditional role of the defender, highly focused on protecting an impossible number of endpoints.

Changing the nature of how we think about security changes the role the defender has to play, and takes the power away from attackers. By focusing security resources on detection and containment, with a strong emphasis on network visibility, enterprises can turn the tables on cyber criminals. This new approach sends a clear message to the attackers – getting into the front door is fine, but you'll never get out. In this slideshow, Gigamon has identified five steps organizations should take to redesign their approach to security.
