All Killer, No Filler: How Metadata Became a Security Super Power at Gigamon

Presented by

Jack Hamm, Principal Information Security Engineer, Gigamon

About this talk

Please join us as Gigamon Principal Information Security Engineer, Jack Hamm, reveals why network metadata is all killer, no filler! As enterprises battle to keep pace with online traffic growth by throttling up network speeds, they are beginning to lose the war on cybercrime. Why? Because security tools are limited in how much traffic they can intelligently process, while at the same time are tasked with taking on increasingly sophisticated functions to combat evermore advanced and persistent cyber attacks. As a consequence, many existing security applications will be rendered ineffective in the very near future. Enter metadata, the new security super power. By providing security tools with summary takes of the packet data traversing networks, metadata can become a powerful weapon for enterprises looking to separate signals from noise, reduce time to threat detection and improve overall security efficacy. Attendees will learn: - How network security will increasingly rely on building context and intent. - Why network-based metadata, followed by programmable packet data streams, will become. the most simple and comprehensive approach to security analytics. - How network visibility serves as the single source of truth for information about applications, users and devices. If network visibility and security is important to you, you won’t want to miss this webcast!
