Exclusive Networks Introduces U.S.-Based Gigamon’s Visibility Solution to Thailand
Bangkok, Exclusive Networks Co., Ltd., a leading distributor of IT products, security, networking, storage and convergent solutions in Asia Pacific, announced an expanded partnership with Gigamon, to distribute and market the company’s industry-leading traffic visibility solutions to providers across Thailand. According to Somchai Hiranyakorn, Managing Director, Exclusive Networks, these newly-added solutions will mainly be targeted at financial services, telecom, government and other enterprise markets that require advanced security to efficiently and reliably protect their heterogeneous and disparate IT infrastructures.
Gigamon’s leading network visibility solutions have helped organizations worldwide improve their security, network and application performance, as well as more efficiently and effectively to see data-in-motion across the enterprise as it traverses public, private and hybrid clouds. Gigamon’s GigaSECURE®, the industry’s first Security Delivery Platform, provides pervasive visibility into network traffic, users, applications and suspicious activity, and delivers it to multiple security devices simultaneously without impacting network availability. As a result, third party security appliances can offer more effective protection and remediation, as well as reduce the security infrastructure complexity and count. This enables more focused, in-depth security analysis, enabling organizations to detect and remediate threats faster and more effectively.
The complexity of network security operations is becoming more difficult thanks to increased traffic, more connected devices on the network and diversity of network and security technologies used to address emerging and known security threats.“Traditional security analytics have been undertaken on network packets and logs but as data volumes and speeds have increased, it becomes difficult to rapidly inspect the whole network and promptly respond to security threats or network problems” said Somchai Hiranyakorn, Managing Director, Exclusive Networks Thailand. “The GigaSECURE platform connects into the network, both physical and virtual, and can be configured to deliver traffic to all required applications and tools. Security appliances simply connect into the GigaSECURE platform, at interface speeds they are capable of, to receive a high-fidelity stream of relevant traffic from across the network infrastructure. The GigaSECURE platform also extracts flow-based meta-data from network traffic, which can be routed to various security tools for analysis.”
“We expect that IT investments will continue to grow, especially in those targeted segments. Main drivers include the ever-increasing growth of business information and customer data, the branching out of the financial institutions, and innovative FINTECH services that will transform financial businesses and customer behaviors. This will bring sales and service opportunities related to Gigamon’s security products and solutions. We expect to achieve US$1-1.5 million or about Bt50 million revenue for Exclusive Network’s portfolios in 2017,” he added.
The addition of Gigamon to Exclusive Networks’ robust security portfolio gives solution providers advanced network traffic visibility solutions to enable more efficient and effective security performance. It also allows partners to design and deliver complete, end-to-end security solutions.
“We’re excited to build upon our relationship with Exclusive Networks in South East Asia and expand our reach to VARs and security ecosystem vendors in Thailand,” said Gary Newbold, Vice President of Asia Pacfic & Japan Sales at Gigamon. “Our expanded partnership will enable us to provide Thai solution providers with the best-in-class network visibility solutions that can solve their customers’ most complex network visibility challenges.” He added.
It is an opportune time for us to invest resources here as the nation rolls out its Thailand Digital Programme goals to be a digital hub by 2018* and we see that happening already with the smart cities plans for Phuket and Chaigmai. We believe this will be a strong driver for increased ICT infrastructure and projects, and along with that comes the need to ensure better cyber security through pervasive visibility. With Exclusive Networks as our second regional distributor, we are confident we can support growing market demand.” Says Gary“
