Santa Clara, CA – Feb 10, 2021 – Over the last year, digital transformation (DX) initiatives have evolved from a long-term goal to a necessity for maintaining business continuity.

To best serve the needs of its customers, Gigamon, global leader in visibility and analytics, today announced Michael Dickman as its new Chief Product Officer (CPO).
