Important Updates for Gigamon Customers

#1. The Metadata Generation Engine Now Supports CEF Log Format, Plus New Apps for QRadar and Splunk Integration

Gigamon Metadata Generation Engine now supports CEF export, which is a text‐based, human readable, log friendly and broadly used meta data format. We also have two new apps to help you integrate with SIEM platforms from IBM QRadar and Splunk.
Customers can now integrate their network visibility and monitoring platforms more easily with a broader range of industry standard SIEM platforms and log analysis tools. This will make the advanced meta data, captured in GigaSECURE and delivered via CEF format, more accessible to wider number of SIEM platforms significantly improving the security of organizations.

Additionally, the customized SIEM apps for QRadar and Splunk allow customers to better and more easily collect, correlate and analyze network events to quickly identify and respond to security threats.
