In partnership, Newgen provides innovative network monitoring and security solutions based upon Gigamon’s GigaVUE-420 systems.
The GigaVUE-420® Data Access Switch supports 10/100/1000 & 10Gig Ethernet. GigaVUE-420 aggregates, filters, and replicates traffic flows across multiple security and monitoring tools. Hardware filters based on any pattern in the 128-byte header may be enabled to eliminate unwanted packets. The GigVUE-420 modular design allows network professionals to deploy the exact number of ports necessary to fit their requirements.
The GigaVUE-420 enables the Data Access Network to unobtrusively monitor the production network. The GigaVUE-420 provides out-of-band ports for passive monitoring tools. Tools may be added without affecting the network, at any hour without configuration management review. Multiple GigaVUE-420 systems can be stacked to create a 222 port Data Access Network. All ports can be configured as network or tool ports.
