Gigamon Acquires Security Start-Up Iceberg
Tuesday 24 July 2018

24 July 2018 - California, US-based network and security company Gigamon Inc. has acquired Washington, US-based security firm Iceberg, the company said.
According to Gigamon, the combination of network traffic visibility from the Gigamon platform and the next-generation approach that Iceberg employs for the detection and triage of threats, will allow enterprises to reduce risk and keep pace with the rapidly evolving threat landscape.
Organisations currently rely on a set of disparate security tools which produce siloed views of the same data.
The duplication of functions such as data acquisition, analysis and alerts lead to inefficiencies in the security stack and higher operational costs.
Security teams, already suffering from chronic resource constraints and threat fatigue, must complete significant correlation after an event to produce actionable output and understand which events to investigate and which to ignore.
Ultimately, this delays threat investigation and impacts operational costs and response times, putting the organization at risk.
Using Iceberg sensors deployed at customer locations, rich network traffic metadata is streamed into a cloud-based platform.
Security Operations Center (SOC) teams are empowered with a rich set of APIs, an advanced query language, enriched metadata and a set of automated detections that allow them to quickly identify and act with confidence to remediate only threats of the highest severity.
Offered as a SaaS solution, SOC and Incident Response teams can rapidly deploy new security technologies as 'security applications' and validate them with a robust data set built over time.
Gigamon is in the convergence of network and security operations to help organisations reduce complexity and increase efficiency of their security stack.
The company's GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform is a next generation network packet broker that helps customers make threats more visible across cloud, hybrid and on-prem environments, deploy resources faster and maximise the performance of their security tools.
Global 2000 companies and government agencies rely on Gigamon solutions to help stop tool sprawl and save costs.
