Skyhigh Security | February 15, 2023
On February 14, 2023, Skyhigh Security, a leading cloud-native security solutions provider, announced that Skyhigh Secure Web Gateway (SWG) for cloud has been granted Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Moderate Authorization.
Cloud technologies are increasingly being adopted by government contractors and federal government agencies in order to support agility, increase efficiency, and cut costs. The FedRAMP authorization enables these companies to deploy Skyhigh SWG, a component of the Skyhigh Security Service Edge (SSE) portfolio, to offer continuous, secure access for users anywhere, safeguard vital government information, and defend against sophisticated contemporary threats.
FedRAMP is a United States government program that analyses cloud security suppliers using a standardized security framework for cloud products and services, with an emphasis on protecting sensitive federal data in the cloud. The FedRAMP process affirms that the Skyhigh SWG solution has been examined and approved by C-level security officials from the General Services Administration, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Homeland Security.
Skyhigh SWG allows users authorized by the government to securely access the web and cloud from any location and on any device. It keeps threats from infiltrating and sensitive data from exfiltrating an environment by monitoring inline traffic and acting as a gateway between websites, users, apps, and data. Skyhigh SWG protects federal agencies against potentially hazardous or unauthorized websites and cloud apps by utilizing several integrated technologies such as Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP).
From a single cloud-native enforcement point, the Skyhigh SSE portfolio secures data and prevents threats in the cloud across all Infrastructure-as-a-Service environments, Software-as-a-Service applications, and Shadow IT.
As a cloud service, it equips enterprises with visibility and control over their data in the cloud, regardless of where it resides. It delivers a single DLP engine with a single simple-to-use centralized administration and reporting dashboard, a single policy framework across all data exfiltration channels, and multi-layered security technologies to cover all conceivable use cases in the federal government environment.

Gigamon | March 13, 2023
Gigamon, the industry leader in deep observability, recently announced the results of a new study from an international data corporation (IDC). It surveyed over 900 IT leaders worldwide and provided invaluable insights for CISOs, CIOs, and their IT organizations to improve performance, security, and productivity with observability throughout all their digital infrastructures. The IDC white paper confirmed that leveraging network-derived knowledge and insights is essential for detecting today's complex security threats across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.
With 95% of businesses reporting a ransomware attack in 2022, IT security remains a significant priority for executives across all sectors. However, most respondents (over 60%) to the IDC White Paper agree that present observability solutions only address specific needs and don't give a complete picture of how things run. To reduce vulnerabilities in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, it is crucial to supplement the conventional observability capabilities based on metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) with real-time network-derived intelligence and insights.
Security (34%), staff productivity (33%), and digital/user experience (22%) are the top advantages of observability (25%).
Nearly 75% of businesses use or intend to employ deep observability technologies to boost automation initiatives in the coming years.
About half of the respondents (51%) of the market will witness significant investments in cloud services
Adherence to the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls, supported by network-derived intelligence, can eliminate 98% of attack vectors.
Mark Leary, Research Director with IDC, remarked, “Networking, cybersecurity, and observability are becoming intertwined. IT organizations are looking to leverage an immutable source of truth and more collaborative management efforts to break down siloed technology approaches, position themselves for long-term success, and, ultimately, deliver the best possible business outcomes.”

Gigamon has over 4,000 customers in over 100 countries, including nine of the ten largest mobile network providers, 80% of the Fortune 100, and hundreds of government and educational institutions. It offers an entire observability pipeline that uses actionable intelligence at the network level. This potent combination aids in enabling IT firms to guarantee security and compliance control, speed up the investigation of performance bottlenecks, and reduce operational overhead related to managing hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructure. Due to this, contemporary businesses can take advantage of everything the cloud offers in terms of innovation.
