Gigamon Acquires Network Visibility Startup ICEBRG

Network traffic analysis firm Gigamon on Tuesday announced plans to acquire network security startup ICEBRG.

Network traffic analysis firm Gigamon on Tuesday announced plans to acquire network security startup ICEBRG.

Founded in 2014, Seattle, Washington-based ICEBRG provides a Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution designed to help organizations detect threats and gain and leverage network visibility for security operations.

Gigamon’s flagship GigaSECURE platform provides visibility into network traffic, users, applications and suspicious activity. 

The ICEBRG platform uses sensors deployed at customer locations that stream network traffic metadata to a cloud-based system that helps Security Operations Center (SOC) teams quickly identify threats and act to remediate them.

Gigamon says it will combine the two platforms to help enterprises leverage various security tools.

“The combination of the high-quality network data from the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform and the ICEBRG cloud-based platform will power the next generation of security capabilities. Together, our expertise in networking and security will help SOC teams focus on defending against the most severe threats in their environments,” William Peteroy, co-founder and CEO of ICEBRG, said.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
