CSOs are working in an increasingly complex and challenging threat landscape that continues to evolve rapidly.
Increasingly varied threat vectors, outdated legacy security tools, and the rising number of endpoints are just the tip of the iceberg of what today’s CSOs need to contend with.
Tied into all these challenges is the fact that legacy security measures were not designed to handle the speed and volume of network traffic being generated today.
Inline security tools that can’t keep up either take data samples or slow the delivery of data so they can examine it fully.
At the same time, integrating a collection of diverse security tools comprising both legacy and next-generation solutions can be inefficient and error-prone.
Sprawling security infrastructures have become too complex to easily manage and modify, which also results in their becoming inflexible and unreliable.
As a result, many organisations have turned to sophisticated network packet brokers that work as central orchestrators for security activity across an organisation.
A network packet broker like Gigamon’s GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform can deliver both security and business benefits.
The solution simplifies security infrastructure management, making it easy to add, integrate, or drop security tools from those distributed around the centralised security delivery platform.
This directly benefits the business by
- Reducing development and management costs and delivering IT budget savings
- Freeing IT and security personnel from deploying and managing more complex security environments
- Extending the life of legacy security systems, providing greater operational agility and effectiveness.
