MILPITAS, Calif. -- Gigamon, a leading provider of intelligent data access networking products, today announced its 10GigaTAP, an add-on for the company's industry standard GigaVUE(R) 420 Data Access Switch. The 10GigaTAP saves money, improves reliability, and reduces the network monitoring footprint by eliminating the need for an external data tap in 10GigE data networks. The 10GigaTAP, exhibited by Gigamon at the ISACA Network Security | Information Security Management Conference in Las Vegas and Interop NY on September 17th and 18th provides extra savings by eliminating the need for additional rack space, cable runs, and provides the TAP function effectively at no additional cost.

The Gigamon 10GigaTAP optimizes network monitoring resources and data integrity. When installed at the back of a GigaVUE 420, the 10GigaTAP splits and copies inbound and outbound optical data streams, then forwards the replicant data to network monitoring tools at 1 or 10 Gbps. Users access network traffic efficiently in one-to-many, many-to-many, or many-to-one configurations to allow sharing of the TAP by many tools.

"The 10GigaTAP saves time, money and complexity-three of the most critical factors for any network engineer," said Patrick Leong, Gigamon's chief technical officer. "Unless external taps are already in place, it's counter-productive to take up physical resources by purchasing and installing them separately from the data access switch. The 10GigaTAP simplifies the situation-a small, efficient add-on that delivers all the functionality of an external tap without additional cabling, rack space or cost."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
