Santa Clara, Calif. – May 14, 2024 — Gigamon, a leading deep observability company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, named six Gigamon leaders to the 2024 Women of the Channel list.

“Gigamon launched the Catalyst Channel Program nearly five years ago, making today’s recognition by CRN especially rewarding as we honor six of our channel leaders for their ongoing commitment to cybersecurity innovation,” said Dee Dee Acquista, vice president of Worldwide Channel and Alliances. “At Gigamon, we understand that the needs of our partners and customers are continuously evolving, and with the leadership and expertise of these six women, we continue to provide the most innovative solutions to secure and manage hybrid cloud infrastructure to our channel partners. Our organization and the industry at large are stronger because of them, and I look forward to their continued accomplishments this year and beyond.”
