Maximising existing infrastructure, minimizing spending & other digital journeys in Gigamon webinar series
Organisations need to get full visibility into their entire network: its structure, traffic patterns, potential threat vectors and critically, to the insights that deep data dives can bring.
That’s the overarching, take-home message of the recent Gigamon Tech Summit – Resilience in the New Tomorrow, available now to view and experience here.
Although digitisation plans may have been put on a back-burner in 2020, now is the time to get back to driving change. The information is indubitably there among the enterprise IT stack— leveraging what resources an organisation has is a critical first step to returning to that digital journey.
In a fireside chat-style plenary webinar, Gigamon VP for Asia Pacific and Japan, Simon Lee, was joined by Greg Schmidt (Regional Sales Director for ANZ), Phillip Park (Country Manager, Gigamon Korea), and June Lim (Regional Sales Manager, Gigamon Singapore) to look at the whys and more importantly, the hows of network visibility projects. The group shared their own experiences of how their customers had managed to turn adversity into triumph over the last six months.
The most forward-thinking organisations have been using these extraordinary times to not only resume their digital transformation projects, but also to accelerate them. By doing so, they gain competitive advantages over more reticent businesses across the APAC region, and even all over the globe.
What became apparent over the course of Resilience in the New Tomorrow was that end-to-end network traffic transparency was being used to game-changing effect by Gigamon customers, many of whom are household names and members of the Fortune 500 group of companies. There were also separate sessions that were vertical-specific (see below for links).
By reducing risk, establishing security guidelines, and driving efficiencies right across the network, organisations can maximise the efficiency of their network and security tools – especially in operational technologies.
Misconfiguration or malicious activities, it was pointed out, risked not only loss of operational efficiency, but could even potentially result in loss of life. By channeling the correct network information to the right tools, overall management overheads were reduced, while simultaneously lowering risk posture.
Right across the region, Gigamon is helping companies run faster, stay more secure, and lower both CAPEX and OPEX despite the nationally mandated restrictions placed on many enterprises. Despite the slowdown in traditional channels of commerce, the flow of data has been undiminished this year, and in many ways (such as remote technologies, collaborative platforms and all methods of digital interchange), data traffic grew exponentially.
How did Gigamon help its partners and customers gain success in these strange times? Listen, watch, and learn to find out.
Of the available webinars, we recommend those concentrating on financial services (with IDC and Gigamon CEO Paul Hooper), the education sector (with the Universities of Hong Kong, Melbourne and SIT), and national government (with Gigamon VP of Public Sector, Dennis Reilly).
In 2020 right across the region, CAPEX was effectively frozen in almost all cases, so businesses faced the quandary of how to maximise their existing stack’s infrastructure and possibilities, without waiting until mothballed projects got back on track.
Over the course of the webinar series, Gigamon demonstrates how the use of technologies like on-the-fly compression, dedicated decryption, packet shaping and de-duplication can free up resources and provide decision-makers with clear roadmaps as to how the business will need to plan for tomorrow and react today.
