Gigamon Inc was founded in 2004. The Company develops a solution that delivers pervasive and dynamic intelligent visibility of traffic across networks. Its solution, which the Company refers to as its Traffic Visibility Fabric, consists of distributed network appliances that enable an advanced level of visibility, modification and control of network traffic. Its Fabric enables IT organizations to forward traffic from network and server infrastructure to management, analysis, compliance and security tools in a manner that is optimized for specific uses or functions. Its patented Flow Mapping technology identifies and directs incoming traffic to single or multiple tools based on user-defined rules that can be managed from a centralized management console. Its GigaSMART platform extends the value and intelligence of the Fabric by providing a range of software applications to modify, manipulate, transform, filter, correlate and sample packets. Its Fabric is designed to help organizations optimize the reliability, performance and security of their physical and virtual network infrastructure, minimize capital investment in management, analysis, compliance and security tools, reduce operating expenses and realize greater value from existing tools that are deployed throughout their networks. The Company sells its products directly through its own sales force and indirectly through its channel partners. It has developed a new and solution that delivers pervasive and dynamic intelligent visibility and control of traffic across networks. Tis Traffic Visibility Fabric consists of distributed network appliances that provide an advanced level of network traffic intelligence including proprietary traffic selection, forwarding, manipulation, modification, de-duplication, correlation and sampling capabilities. The Company offers both purpose-built physical appliances that are integrated with its proprietary software, in addition to a range of software products that enable its end-user customers to design Traffic Visibility Fabric architectures optimized for a range of scale and performance requirements from 1 Gigabit appliances to multi-Terabit chassis-based solutions in both physical and virtual environments. The Company's GigaVUE product family provides end-user customers with multiple performance and port density configurations in order to establish a Traffic Visibility Fabric optimized for a range of size and performance requirements. It outsources the manufacturing, systems assembly, testing and order fulfillment of its hardware products to Jabil Circuit, Inc., or Jabil. The Company competes either directly or indirectly with Ethernet switch vendors, such as Cisco Systems, Inc., Juniper Networks, Inc., Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. and Arista Networks, Inc., and network management, analysis, compliance and security tool vendors that offer point solutions that address a portion of the issues that it solves.
