If youre familiar with Gigamon, you likely know them as the market-leading vendor in the emerging visibility fabric space. The companys products provide businesses with pervasive and intelligent network data across physical and virtual environments. The GigaVUE portfolio delivers the appropriate network traffic to management tools and platforms. Ive often said that you cant manage what you cant see, and Gigamon provides the necessary visibility data so organizations can improve the management of their IT infrastructure.
However, Gigamons information can also be used to help businesses improve their security posture. If you cant manage what you cant see, then it stands to reason that you cant secure what you cant see. One of the challenges with traditional security approaches is that it primarily focuses on preventing breaches, but once the perimeter has been penetrated, theres no way to detect it or remediate against it.
Also, security devices can be overwhelmed with data when all network traffic is sent to them. For example, why send all network traffic to an email filtering tool just to have it process the data and then drop all non-email traffic? Or better yet, why not just send it emails with attachments and hyperlinks, since thats where the malicious traffic comes from?
Another challenge is that many security tools sample the data at different rates. Some capture all data, some every few seconds, and some every few minutes. This causes inconsistent information and creates equally inconsistent threat information.
Gigamons visibility infrastructure solves these challenges. This morning, the company announced an architecture called GigaSECURE, which is a security delivery platform (SDP). GigaSECURE can be thought of as the security equivalent of GigaVUE, a visibility platform for network management.
GigaSECURE is a timely release, as I believe that its time for IT and security leaders to re-examine how to architect security. The perimeter is disappearing, and constantly throwing more money, tools, and people to solve an increasingly complex problem has diminishing returns. This ad hoc approach of adding more and more disparate systems and appliances is a good strategy, but its not good enough today. Its time for businesses to understand and admit that breaches will occur; the question is, what happens after they do?
The key to solving the above security challenges and finding breaches faster is visibility. If the organization has the ability to see all the traffic across the network, then it can look for anomalies that can quickly identify possibly malicious traffic. Equally important, the traffic can be quarantined to minimize the "blast radius" of the threat. Contained traffic cant cause any additional harm, so its important to keep the threat isolated as quickly as possible.
A security delivery platform enables the necessary visibility by providing the following:
- Pervasive visibility that spans all portions of the network.
- Visibility intelligence through the manipulation of traffic to direct the right traffic to the appropriate security device.
- Better scalability for security tools. The traffic manipulation removes the overhead of traffic processing from the appliance and enables it to do what it does best.
Additionally, the SDP reduces the requirement to have security appliances everywhere. Instead, security tools can be placed at strategic locations and the SDP can direct network-wide traffic to it. This has obvious cost advantages but also makes the management of security tools easier as IT no longer needs to manage a sprawl of devices.
Security and business leaders must accept the world for what it is today, and that is one where breaches are going to occur. Understanding that, the question for the security team is when a breach occurs, how it takes to find it and how its can impact be minimized. The GigaSECURE SDP can enable threat detection, containment, and remediation, particularly for threats inside the network. A security delivery platform should be considered as important to a security architecture as a firewall or any other security appliance.

Thousands of university graduates are celebrating their accomplishments this summer and for many of them, the realities of life are just beginning.
Whether they find themselves saddled with debt from student loans or flush with cash from a cushy job offer, Tana Gildea has advice they can use.
In The Graduates Guide to Money: Tools for Starting Your Financial Journey on the Right Foot, Gildea walks new grads through important financial lessons from their very first job to their very first investments.
The Atlanta-based certified financial planner and certified public accountant wants young people to learn the life lessons they may or may not have picked up in college.
The fact that you can graduate from college and be required to take general education courses, but learn nothing about personal finance ... I think that is a travesty, she says.
Here are some of the top money mistakes that Gildea says millennials should avoid:
1. Not setting financial goals
2. Not tracking your spending
3. Carrying consumer credit card debt
4. Not having emergency savings and not having it in cash (versus investments)
5. Not comparison shopping, shopping sales or using coupons
6. Having no investment strategy
7. Thinking Its only $5 bucks!
Gildea advises millennials to be mindful of the kind of life they want. Dont be so quick to follow what your friends are doing.
If you are in your 20s, start by creating a plan and definitely start investing money while time is on your side.
Waiting a decade to get started is like giving money away, she says. In your 30s, begin preparing for a new phase of life that may include a partner, a home and children. The key again is planning rather than blindly living and spending day to day.
Be purposeful, Gildea says. Regardless of what your salary is, you can make your life be what you want it to be.

They go through the vehicle and theyre looking for anything they can grab, Harris said.
Its terrible," neighbor Deborah Fukes said, "it changes the way you go to sleep at night,
Fukes and other neighbors agree the rash of crime can be attributed to one major reason.
The drugs. The drugs are rampant. Not just in Pleasure Ridge. Theyre everywhere, Fukes said.
One neighbor captured video of the suspect on a surveillance camera.
Anyone with information on the suspect or the recent break-ins is asked to call police at (502) 574-LMPD.
