"The most valuable feature is performance monitoring.""We really like the scalability capabilities.""I have found the AppResponse, which is a packet capture solution, very good. It gives you the ability to drill down back in time. You've got all the packets there. You can troubleshoot it later, not immediately. It's very interesting.""When it comes to the ability to scale up the product, this is suitable for small medium and large environments,"

Cons
"The security should be improved."

More Gigamon Cons »

"The initial setup is straightforward, but you have to know a little about the product. It's not for everybody to just plug and play. If you know how the solution is implemented then it is straightforward.""The AI features should be addressed in respect of the analysis and intelligence that must be supported and delivered in the tool to predigest the large amounts of data.""Technical support needs to be more responsive.""The pricing is on the higher side of things. If they could lower it, that would be ideal."
