Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT™ Named Cyber Catalyst℠ Designated Solution to Address Top Security Risks Identified by Insurers

Cyber Catalyst participating insurers rated Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT highest on the criteria of efficiency, cyber risk reduction and differentiation

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gigamon, the leader in visibility and analytics for the hybrid cloud, today announced that its Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT™ solution has been awarded a Cyber Catalyst℠ designation as part of the annual Cyber Catalyst by Marsh℠ evaluation program. The Cyber Catalyst program convenes leading cyber insurers to evaluate cybersecurity solutions and award the Cyber Catalyst designation to those they believe can have a meaningful impact on cyber risk. Organizations that adopt Cyber Catalyst designated solutions may be considered for enhanced terms and conditions on individually negotiated cyber insurance policies with participating insurers.

With a sharp rise in the adoption of network detection and response (NDR) solutions to complement the endpoint detection and response (EDR) and security information and event management (SIEM) defense stack, insurers have recognized ThreatINSIGHT, the first cloud-native high-velocity NDR solution, as the representative solution in this space.

As the distributed workplace becomes the norm, the need for pervasive visibility into network activity, within both north-south and east-west (lateral) communications, continues to increase. ThreatINSIGHT addresses these challenges by resolving threats faster and reducing risk by offering security experts unequaled visibility across their entire attack surface. Utilizing Machine Learning and Behavioral Analysis techniques, along with powerful threat hunting and investigation management workflows, ThreatINSIGHT helps reduce organizational risk by:

  • Proactively hunting for potential threats with broad situational awareness across physical, virtual, and cloud networks and then directing an effective response.
  • Prioritizing real-time suspicious behavior investigations with high-confidence detections, reducing mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR).
  • Leveraging dedicated Technical Success Managers to ensure ThreatINSIGHT is properly updated and utilized.

The key to building an effective security architecture lies in the ability to focus teams on threats, not tool management, and we are proud to have earned independent validation of ThreatINSIGHT’s ability to improve the overall security posture of our customers,” said Karl Van den Bergh, Chief Marketing Officer at Gigamon. “We are proud to be named as a Cyber Catalyst designated solution by participating insurers who work with their clients to protect not just their networks but more intangible assets, such as their image and reputation, from a rapidly increasing roster of threat actors.”
