Cyber security firms Gigamon and FireEye have announced a global strategic partnership to improve threat defences across their customers’ security infrastructures.
The alliance offers customers FireEye Network Security combined with the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform with flexible deployment options and scalability for enhanced threat protection. With GigaSECURE providing intelligent access and control of network traffic and options for both inline and out-of-band deployments, FireEye can detect and contain sophisticated threats quickly and efficiently.
The strategic alliance will allow both companies and their channel partners to bring a unified approach to global sales and deployments, delivering deeper integration and more effective security solutions to existing and new customers.
“Gigamon and FireEye are important elements of the cybersecurity strategy here at Parsons, for both network resiliency and cyber threat prevention,” said Ron Nielson, vice president and chief technology officer of Parson Corporation’s Cyber and Intelligence Division. “Deploying the joint Gigamon and FireEye solutions has helped us minimize our risk of attacks, infections and breaches. I’m hoping this closer collaboration translates to even more effective solutions for Parsons.”
“We are delighted to announce our strategic partnership with FireEye. Our joint solutions have already been deployed by hundreds of customers worldwide to improve efficiency and decrease complexity of their security stack,” said Ananda Rajagopal, vice president of products at Gigamon. “Together we will continue to deliver pre-integrated, market-leading solutions that will help our joint customers achieve increased confidence in their security posture.”
“Customers today are overwhelmed by managing multiple, disparate security solutions,” said Rich Stegina, vice president of strategic partnerships at FireEye. “Gigamon and FireEye have been long time integration partners, and over the years we've seen the joint solution benefit both our mutual customers and our channel partners. By moving to a strategic partnership, we can further simplify how our customers protect their networks and make it easier for our partners to deliver our joint solutions."
