Gigamon Announces Strategic Focus in Latin America; Names Carlos Perea as Vice President of the Region
Cybersecurity Driving Demand for Pervasive Network Traffic Visibility throughout Region

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced its expansion into the Latin American (LATAM) market as part of the company's global growth initiatives. Headquartered in the U.S., Gigamon is building a presence in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. Having a local presence in these markets enables Gigamon and its partners to address today's security and network traffic visibility challenges that impact local mobile operators, service providers, government organizations and enterprise organizations.

As part of its growth, Gigamon has appointed a new team to drive activities throughout LATAM. Carlos Perea will serve as the Vice President of Sales for Latin America, overseeing all activities. As a seasoned executive, he brings more than 20 years of IT industry experience.

"For enterprises, government organizations and service providers, increasing security is a key priority for the protection of vital IT assets.  A network infrastructure that does not leverage active visibility coupled with strong security is destined to fail and incur a high cost for breach remediation," said Carlos Perea, Vice President of sales for Latin America, Gigamon. "Gigamon solves the visibility challenge for organizations around the globe, and I am excited to help build our presence in the dynamic and diverse region of Latin America."

As part of the LATAM market expansion, Gigamon has established production facilities in Mexico with Jabil, an electronic product solutions company providing comprehensive electronics design and manufacturing services to global electronics and technology companies. By doing so, Gigamon gains greater agility and dynamism to meet growing market needs.
