Santa Clara, Calif., (April 27, 2017) – Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the industry leader in traffic visibility solutions, announced today that Arthur (Art) W. Coviello Jr. is joining its board of directors. Art brings over 30 years of security, financial and operational management experience.

“Art Coviello is one of the most recognized and influential pioneers who defined the cybersecurity industry,” said Corey Mulloy, chairman of the Gigamon Board of Directors. “His deep understanding of the market and proven experience will play a critical role in driving the Company’s leadership as pervasive visibility transcends into core security, cloud and virtualized environments.”
