Gigamon elevates Newgen Systems to first Australian distributor

Leadership position in the traffic visibility network market

MELBOURNE (Cisco Live) –March 21, 2012. Gigamon®, a world leader in Traffic Visibility Fabric solutions, today announced the appointment of Newgen Systems as the company’s Australian distributor.

Newgen has played a key role in Gigamon’s expansion in Australia since becoming a reseller partner in 2006. With it’s strong emphasis on product innovation creating unique product differentiation, Gigamon has a leadership position in the traffic visibility network market that it created in 2004. This success is reflected in the Australian market, where customers for the company’s intelligent traffic visibility fabric solutions include enterprises, data centres and service providers, with a strong emphasis on telcos.

David Sajoto, Vice President of Sales, Asia Pacific and Japan for Gigamon, said: “We are delighted to elevate Newgen to become our first Australian distributor, as they have grown alongside Gigamon and made an important contribution to our steady expansion here. Gigamon has been a channel-focused organisation from day one, and we believe that the relationships we have developed with key partners such as NewGen have been an important ingredient in our success. With the history of accomplishment that we share with Newgen, we know they have the expertise, knowledge and support infrastructure to continue our expansion in the region.”

Robert Perin, Director of Newgen, said: “We are pleased that Gigamon has recognised our contribution over the years and sees us as a strong partner, capable of driving future directions and sharing in continuing success.

“With networks expanding in size and complexity, operators of enterprise and service provider networks need to be able to understand the traffic that is traversing their network. Regulatory, compliance and security requirements, and new technologies such as virtualisation and the cloud are all drivers for increased visibility to traffic on production networks. Without a reliable and pervasive traffic visibility solution in place, large-scale networks in enterprise, government, and service provider environments are often running blind as to what is occurring on their production networks. Add to this the challenges of integrating emerging technologies such as mobility and trends such as BYOD - and Gigamon’s solutions are quickly becoming a network requirement."

Newgen will continue to focus on targeting market segments including telcos, financial services, government and utilities.
