Likelihood to Recommend

AlgoSec

It is well suited for firewall security optimisation, tuning, change management and application discovery.

Gigamon

Gigamon span port redistribution switches are great for capturing traffic from a single span port and redistributing, decrypting and converting to NetFlow. These devices are taps on steroids and are really great at what they do. I would highly recommend getting one at each location for the core of the network, especially where you want to collect actual packets and conversion to NetFlow, or the like is needed.

Gigamon

Taps and or just using span ports directly to the devices. The Interesting thing about Gigamon is its uniqueness, there are very little devices that are able to do all the functions that Gigamon can perform.
