FireEye And Gigamon Strike A High-Tech Alliance
FireEye and Gigamon, two cybersecurity organizations, have shaped a new strategy to enhance product effectiveness for customers while still providing them with what they need to stay protected in today’s digital environment. When paired together, FireEye Network Security and GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform can provide canny access and control of system movement and alternatives for both inline and out-of-band arrangements.
FireEye can also productively distinguish and contain dedicated threats. The companies have stated, “By being vigilant and catching an incident early, security teams can reduce the overall impact—costly fixes, disrupted business, stolen information, and damaged reputations.”
Ananda Rajagopal, Gigamon VP of Products says the company is delighted to work with FireEye as part of the strategic partnership. “Our joint solutions have already been deployed by hundreds of customers worldwide to improve efficiency and decrease the complexity of their security stack. Together, we will continue to deliver pre-integrated, market-leading solutions that will help our joint customers achieve increased confidence in their security posture.”
The alliance will allow companies and channel partners to unify global sales and deployments, deliver deeper integration and bring more effective security solutions to both new and existing customers. Rich Stegina, FireEye’s VP of Strategic Partnerships, says businesses can become overwhelmed by the management of multiple, disparate security solutions.
“Gigamon and FireEye have been long-time integration partners, and over the years we’ve seen the joint solution benefit both our mutual customers and our channel partners. By moving to a strategic partnership, we can further simplify how our customers protect their networks and make it easier for our partners to deliver our joint solutions.”
The companies say they will:
- Enable greater threat detection performance through increased visibility with SSL decryption and access to traffic across the physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure.
- Offer market-leading solutions architected for heightened security, efficiency, and network performance, all without compromising network uptime.
- Reduce the need for network downtime due to planned and unplanned outages for maintenance or device failure.
- Provide performance, scale, and resiliency of comprehensive prevention and detection security solutions in large enterprise networks.
“Gigamon and FireEye are important elements of the cybersecurity strategy here at Parsons, for both network resiliency and cyber threat prevention,” comments Parson Corporation cyber and intelligence division’s VP and Chief Technology Officer, Ron Nielson. “Deploying the joint Gigamon and FireEye solutions has helped us minimize our risk of attacks, infections, and breaches. I’m hoping this closer collaboration translates to even more effective solutions for Parsons.”
