Gigamon and FireEye have announced a global strategic partnership that offers customers FireEye’s network security combined with the Gigamon GigaSECURE security delivery platform that provides access and control of network traffic and options for both inline and out-of-band deployments.
As strategic alliance partners, the two companies promise to provide performance, scale and resiliency of comprehensive prevention and detection security solutions in large enterprise networks; enable greater threat detection; and reduce the need for network downtime due to planned and unplanned outages for maintenance or device failure.
“Our joint solutions have already been deployed by hundreds of customers worldwide to improve efficiency and decrease complexity of their security stack,” said Ananda Rajagopal, vice president of products at Gigamon. “Together we will continue to deliver pre-integrated, market-leading solutions that will help our joint customers achieve increased confidence in their security posture.”
“Customers today are overwhelmed by managing multiple, disparate security solutions,” said Rich Stegina, vice president of strategic partnerships at FireEye. “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.”
The strategic alliance combines network packet broker capabilities with threat management, and is likely to help both companies and their channel partners bring a unified approach to global sales and deployments with deeper integration.
