TD Synnex has joined the Gigamon Catalyst Partner Program so it can "meet the demand for deep observability solutions that enable enterprise IT organizations to better manage and secure hybrid cloud infrastructure," the companies announced.

As a Catalyst partner, TD Synnex expands its portfolio of hybrid cloud infrastructure security and management solutions for organizations across North America, Gigamon said. It also can access sales tools, marketing resources and training to support enterprise sales of Gigamon solutions.

What Gigamon's Catalyst Partner Program Offers

Catalyst provides channel partners with sales tools, demand generation programs, content, thought leadership and marketing resources and incentives, Gigamon stated. By doing so, the program helps partners increase their profits and grow their businesses.

Channel partners can join Catalyst to integrate various Gigamon solutions into their portfolios, such as:

  • Cloud visibility solutions that organizations can use to manage cloud security and compliance and reduce their cloud costs
  • Data center visibility solutions that allow organizations to optimize their data center operations and make network changes without disruption
  • Network security solutions that help organizations develop a zero trust architecture

Along with TD Synnex, there are more than 1,700 Catalyst partners globally, Gigamon noted.

Gigamon Brings Deep Observability Capabilities to Amazon Security Lake

The TD Synnex partnership comes after Gigamon in June 2023 integrated its Deep Observability Pipeline technology into the Amazon Security Lake. The integration provides Security Lake users with security analytics based on data communications to help them identify any usage of vulnerable protocols, deprecated ciphers and expired certificates, Gigamon said. It also provides forensics that compare what applications did with what logs report and a data set that can serve as the foundation for artificial intelligence-based security analytics.

Gigamon's Deep Observability Pipeline delivers network-based intelligence to cloud, security and observability tools, the company said. It helps organizations eliminate security blind spots, reduce their tool costs and manage their hybrid cloud infrastructure.

More than 4,200 customers utilize the Deep Observability Pipeline and other Gigamon products and solutions. Gigamon also continues to explore channel partnership opportunities.
