Gigamon, the developer of visibility and analytics solutions for the hybrid cloud, is to integrate its ThreatINSIGHT network detection and response (NDR) product with Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) to help protect the distributed devices of today’s mobile workforces.


Gigamon has said that legacy approaches to infrastructure protection from cybercrime are no longer adequate. Remote workers accessing SaaS services have necessitated new approaches to the security of essential corporate data, it claimed.


NDR solutions work by offering visibility into network traffic across cloud, virtual and physical infrastructure. Gigamon is matching its NDR offer with ZIA, a security service that delivers cloud-based internet and web security to users on or off the enterprise network.


“Partnering with Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT enables us to provide our customers with integrated NDR technology across Zscaler deployments,” said Amit Raikar, Vice President of Business Development at Zscaler. “Our customers have significantly accelerated their digital transformation journeys during the pandemic, and this integration will help them better respond to threats.”


“The expanded attack surface, and increasingly sophisticated tactics from threat actors, require not just an innovative approach to detection and response, but also ease of deployment with zero maintenance, which allows InfoSec teams to focus on the former, not the latter,” said Karl Van den Bergh, Chief Marketing Officer at Gigamon. “ThreatINSIGHT was designed from the ground up as a cloud-based NDR solution and we are proud to partner with Zscaler, a leader in cloud-first security, to address our customers’ security and visibility needs.”


This event will feature discussion of topical cybersecurity issues.
