Gigamon Customer Review

Gigamon Delivers Incredible Benefits for U.S. Department of Defense

5/5 Stars

Please describe the CapEx or OpEx ROI your organization has achieved using the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric.

Our OpEx ROI has been significantly reduced upon deploying Gigamon solutions. Thanks to Gigamon, considerably less time is now needed to develop new tools — or to augment current tools — in order to handle increasing data volume. Historically, in order to accommodate high data volumes, hundreds or thousands of hours were spent developing or changing current data processing software tools. The Gigamon appliances enabled us to spend resources on software feature enhancements versus baseline maintenance.

What are the most significant benefits your organization has achieved using Gigamon solutions?

Because of Gigamon solutions, we’ve been able to reduce our hardware stack. We now have fewer servers and fewer PSC needs. This, in turn, reduced our hardware procurement costs, which saved us a lot of money.
