Jim Balog to spearhead Gigamon campaigns

Targeting growing network challenges of telecommunications, enterprise and government organisations.

SYDNEY, March 25, 2013 – Gigamon®, a leader in traffic visibility solutions with the innovative Visibility Fabric™ architecture, today announced the appointment of Jim Balog as Regional Sales Director for Australia and New Zealand to address expanding opportunities.

The company is ramping up sales and marketing activities to address growing network challenges of telecommunications, enterprise and government organisations. These include big data, bring-your-own-device (BYOD), network virtualisation and hybrid infrastructure using cloud, managed services and outsourcing.

Gigamon recently participated in the VMUG events in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as Cisco Live in Melbourne. These events reached Gigamon’s target market and showcased recent Gigamon offerings from their Visibility Fabric™ architecture, including the GigaVUE™-HD8, GigaVUE-VM as well as 40Gb and 100Gb capabilities.

Gigamon provides end-to-end visibility into networks, to improve the management of business critical applications, security and network performance.

Balog said: “It is a challenging but exciting time to be joining Gigamon, whose technology is in demand from large organisations needing to manage their businesses more effectively. Ours is a simple, compelling value proposition – Gigamon promotes growth while enabling operational visibility and cost savings for the business and IT departments.” Gigamon is growing its operations in Australia and New Zealand through expansion of its reseller network and technology alliances.

Rob Perin, CEO of Gigamon distributor Newgen Systems, said: “Jim’s appointment signals an intensified expansion campaign in Australia and New Zealand, which reflects the company’s current successes in the region.”

Balog joined Gigamon from triCerat where he developed a channel strategy and launched their operations here in Australia. He has been involved with building service organisations and start-ups focused on virtualisation technology in Australia.
