GigaSMART® technology extends the intelligence and value of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ architecture by enhancing your monitoring infrastructure and improving tool performance. A range of applications to enable the modification, manipulation, transformation and transport of traffic from your network to the tools you rely upon for management, monitoring and security.

Network monitoring tools perform more efficiently by eliminating unwanted content with the de-duplication and packet slicing features. SSL Decryption provides visibility into encrypted sessions, sending decrypted packets to out-of-band monitoring tools. Masking allows network security teams to hide confidential information like passwords, financial accounts or medical data, enabling companies to meet SOX, HIPAA and PCI compliance regulations. Organizations can improve accuracy by adding source or timing information at the point of collection with the source port labeling and time stamping capabilities.

Enhanced packet distribution features available with Adaptive Packet Filtering or Layer 7 load balancing enable visibility into packet contents. When combined with header stripping, tools can operate more effectively by removing unwanted protocol headers.
