SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon® (NYSE: GIMO), a leader in traffic visibility solutions via its innovative Unified Visibility Fabric™, today announced a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider. Carahsoft will serve as master government aggregator for Gigamon, making the company's industry-leading intelligent Traffic Visibility Networking solutions available to the public sector via Carahsoft's GSA schedule.
"We are pleased to partner with Carahsoft to offer government agencies the very best cyber security solutions in the visibility market," said Dennis Reilly, Gigamon's vice president of federal. "IT network and security teams at the federal level face the unparalleled challenge of protecting information as a matter of national security. Through our partnership with Carahsoft we are able to equip these organizations with the capabilities to identify and respond rapidly to incidents, keep systems operational and monitor for malicious material and information, all while maintaining confidentiality."
According to a report by the United States Government Accountability Office, the number of cyber incidents experienced by federal agencies increased in fiscal year 2013 significantly over the prior three years, with a total of 46,160 incidents, which represented an increase of almost 33 percent over the prior 12 months. The ability for government IT teams to analyze traffic and respond quickly to events is an essential defense against cyber warfare, while it also enables IT to adhere to security compliance standards.
The Gigamon Visibility Fabric arms agencies with the real-time traffic information they need for pervasive, uninterrupted visibility into their business infrastructure by intelligently aggregating and optimizing traffic flows to multiple monitoring and security tools simultaneously.
