Gigamon Joins Cybersecurity Tech Accord

Defending against malicious attacks by cybercriminal enterprises and nation-states is a fundamental reason why customers globally choose Gigamon hardware and software applications. With our next-generation packet broker threats are more visible across cloud, hybrid, and on-premises environments, resources can be deployed faster, and security tools perform at higher levels.

The cloud is driving innovation and changing our lives – how we shop, bank, communicate, and work. But with such dramatic, disruptive technology, there’s comes new risk. Cyberattacks are increasing and it’s time for us, the market-leaders in technology, to join together and take a stand.

On Wednesday, June 20th, Gigamon joined the growing list of 40+ technology leaders in the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, all pledged to fight cyberattacks and promise equal protection for customers worldwide.

All Cybersecurity Tech Accord signatory companies make commitments in four areas:

Stronger defense

The companies will mount a stronger defense against cyberattacks. As part of this, recognizing that everyone deserves protection, the companies pledged to protect all customers globally regardless of the motivation for attacks online.

No offense

The companies will not help governments launch cyberattacks against innocent citizens and enterprises and will protect against tampering or exploitation of their products and services through every stage of technology development, design and distribution.

Capacity building

The companies will do more to empower developers and the people and businesses that use their technology, helping them improve their capacity for protecting themselves. This may include joint work on new security practices and new features the companies can deploy in their individual products and services.

Collective action

The companies will build on existing relationships and together establish new formal and informal partnerships with industry, civil society and security researchers to improve technical collaboration, coordinate vulnerability disclosures, share threats and minimize the potential for malicious code to be introduced into cyberspace.

Gigamon is proud to be an early participating member of the Tech Accord to help address cybersecurity challenges and better protect people around the world.
