Unveiling the New TLS/SSL Dashboard from Gigamon: A Comprehensive Solution for Enhanced Network Security and Performance

In today’s digital landscape, ensuring secure and efficient data transmission is paramount. The TLS/SSL Dashboard, released in GigaVUE 6.7, offers a robust solution for monitoring and managing encrypted traffic. These dashboards provide comprehensive insights into TLS/SSL sessions, enabling organizations to maintain high levels of security while optimizing network performance.

Additionally, the TLS/SSL Dashboard simplifies troubleshooting and enhances compliance efforts by providing contextualized data and logs. With historical data readily available, it supports rigorous compliance and auditing processes, making it an essential solution for NetOps and SecOps teams, IT professionals, and network administrators aiming to maintain high security and operational standards. Powered by GigaVUE-FM, the dashboard not only streamlines network operations but also ensures that organizations can easily adhere to strict regulatory standards.

Leverage the Power of the TLS/SSL Dashboard

The TLS/SSL Dashboard is part of the Fabric Health Analytics (FHA) in GigaVUE-FM fabric manager and is structured with several key tabs, each designed to offer specific insights and functionalities:

  • Session Overall
  • Session Engine Overview
  • Traffic Insights
  • Session Insights
  • Session Table
  • Engine Diagnostics

These tabs collectively provide a holistic view of the network’s TLS traffic, enabling users to monitor, analyze, and optimize their network environments effectively.

Understanding System Operations: The Session Overall and Session Engine Overview tabs provide both broad and detailed views of system operations, offering insights into the health and performance of TLS sessions. This information is crucial for maintaining system integrity and preemptively addressing potential issues.
