Gigamon has been known for years as a market leader in the network packet broker space, conquering the challenge of getting the right data to the right network and security tools. Over the last few years, Gigamon extended into the security space, which paved the way for their acquisition of ICEBRG. With ICEBRG, Gigamon has expanded its capabilities to help organizations use data better by delivering next-generation security analytics with all of the captured data. Now, in addition to giving network tools the visibility to increase network and application performance and giving security tools access to the traffic they need to process and act upon, Gigamon delivers further insights to combat threats.

With the ICEBRG acquisition and integration, Gigamon can capture network traffic metadata into a central platform that offers an API, a user-friendly query language, and built-in advanced security applications, transforming itself from a leading-edge network traffic company into a leading-edge cybersecurity company. Gigamon's vision is to transform not only the way it handles data, but the way cybersecurity teams operate by providing a rich, open-access network traffic analytics platform upon which multiple security applications can be deployed, whether such apps are developed by Gigamon, a customer, or a third-party partner.
