Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline Fundamentally Enables U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Zero Trust Strategy and Roadmap
Gigamon provides visibility into all network traffic, a key Zero Trust requirement of the new US Department of Defense Strategy and Roadmap.
January 18, 2023 (Wednesday) – Gigamon Inc. (Headquarters: Santa Clara, California, USA; Japan Representative: Atsuhito Okubo), a leading company in Deep Observability, announced that Gigamon Deep Observability announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)’s newly announced Zero Trust Strategy and Capability Execution Roadmap implementation will be enabled by the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) Zero Trust Strategy and Capability Execution Roadmap. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) approach utilizes a seven-pillar model and is implemented from 152 activities, 91 of which must be implemented by 2027. Gigamon’s visibility into network traffic has enabled or addressed nearly half of the 152 activities across 6 of the 7 pillars, making it an integral part of enabling Zero Trust implementations.

https://federalnewsnetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/TAB_B_DoD-ZT-Capability-Execution-Roadmap-11-18-2022_508.pdf The DOD model was learned from a Zero Trust Pilot (“Dream Port Pilot”) conducted at the Maryland Institute for Innovation and Security (MISI) at Dream Port, the U.S. Cyber Command’s primary cybersecurity innovation facility. Developed using lessons learned.
Dream Port Pilot has traditionally been unable to visualize network traffic within the network environment. To solve this challenge, the Dream Port team implemented the Gigamon Deep Observability pipeline into their architecture to monitor all traffic traversing the network environment, including traffic flowing laterally within the
environment. Collect network packets. This traffic is called East-West (internal communication), but it has been a common blind spot as companies and organizations have so far only focused on traffic analysis at the network perimeter. Dream Port Pilot’s ability to see all traffic has eliminated blind spots that attackers could exploit, allowing for a successful Zero Trust implementation. Based on that experience, DOD’s strategy and roadmap calls for organizations to have visibility into all network traffic in 2023.
“The U.S. Department of Defense is making significant strides forward in our Zero Trust efforts globally,” said Shane Buckley, President and CEO of Gigamon. “Gigamon is proud that our Deep Observability pipeline, as demonstrated at our Dream Port facility, is a
foundational capability for implementing Zero Trust architectures. increase.”
As demonstrated in the Dream Port Pilot, Gigamon and its public and commercial partners are helping organizations achieve Zero Trust architectures by leveraging network traffic visibility both at the perimeter (external communications) and within the environment (internal communications). can help you succeed.
The Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline enables organizations to: Access – Get complete visibility into your hybrid multi-cloud infrastructure and eliminate network blind spots. This is the foundation for achieving a Zero Trust architecture.
Broker – Forwards network traffic packets and metadata to security, observability or monitoring tools deployed on all platforms. Transform – Application Filtering Intelligence provides packet deduplication, advanced flow slicing, load balancing and NetFlow generation. Secure decryption of SSL and TLS enables several activities defined in the DOD Zero Trust Execution Roadmap.
Analyze – Application Metadata Intelligence extracts over 5,000 traffic protocol- and application-related metadata attributes that can be leveraged to feed Zero Trust policy engines, SIEMs and monitoring tools. Metadata generated from network traffic, especially in hybrid multi-cloud infrastructures, can be leveraged to meet the logging implementation requirements mentioned in the DOD Zero Trust Execution Roadmap (Section 7.1).
Management – Integrated visibility management and orchestration with GigaVUE-FM Fabric Manager or a native DevOps approach.
