(Boulder, Colorado, February 24, 2016) – ManagedMethods, a new contender in the cloud access security space, today announced its cloud visibility and management solutions are part of Gigamon’s #wefightsmart initiative. Launched today in New York, the #wefightsmart campaign highlights the need to transform network security, making the world’s networks safer, by giving security technologies the visibility to threats they have lacked to date. Gigamon’s GigaSECURE platform provides a security solution that provides pervasive visibility to ManagedMethods’ cloud discovery and control offering. The combined solutions provide a powerful tool to secure corporate networks and fight Shadow IT.

“We are pleased to be part of the #wefightsmart initiative,” said Charlie Sander, Chairman and CEO at ManagedMethods. “Our integration with Gigamon’s Visibility Fabric delivers the real-time extended visibility and control of Cloud Apps that customers need to help strengthen their overall cloud security.”

“Gigamon believes that when you can see everything that is going on in your network, you are in control and, in turn, can defend yourself and turn the tables on the attackers. That includes the need to see cloud application risks,” said Phil Griston, Director, Alliances Marketing and Business Development at Gigamon. “We are happy to work with ManagedMethods in delivering joint solutions to unlock greater visibility and control of cloud usage.”

ManagedMethods’ Cloud Access Monitor integrates with Gigamon’s GigaSECURE to provide IT security groups with visibility and insight into all network traffic and cloud application usage. Any link at headquarters or from remote locations can be tapped and the traffic delivered to a ManagedMethods dashboard where cloud applications are flagged. Gigamon’s GigaSECURE can also be used to decrypt and forward SSL encrypted to Cloud Access Monitor for analysis. Together, Gigamon and ManagedMethods provide customers with real-time visibility of converged networks and protection against a Shadow IT blindside.

Together, we are calling on organizations large and small to rethink the architecture of their cybersecurity infrastructure and to take the fight to the attackers. #wefightsmart
