As a leading deep observability company, Gigamon provides the tools and expertise required in today’s evolving threat landscape to help optimise and secure over 80 percent of Fortune 100 enterprises and 9 of the 10 largest mobile network providers.

“Enterprises are quickly shifting toward hybrid and multi-cloud deployments to accelerate digital transformation initiatives but, unfortunately, they must contend with an ever-more dangerous threat landscape. I look forward to entering this new phase of growth focused on addressing the evolving requirements of our customers by investing in the deep observability solutions required to achieve the full agility of a resilient digital infrastructure without risk,” said Paul Buckley, incoming President & CEO, Gigamon.

The company also serves hundreds of government agencies and educational organizations, as well as over 4,000 marquee enterprise customers worldwide including Lockheed Martin, AWS, Clemson University, Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, Under Armour and the Department of Defense.

Under the leadership of outgoing CEO, Paul Hooper, Gigamon became a trusted market leader in network visibility and security solutions.

A New Frontier: Deep Observability

Buckley will lead the next evolution of Gigamon as the company invests in and seeks to lead the emerging deep observability market.

Gigamon offers a deep observability pipeline that harnesses actionable network-level intelligence to amplify the power of cloud, security, and observability tools.

“As President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Shane demonstrated his abilities as a world-class executive by co-leading the company through both highly successful quarters in parallel with navigating the challenges of the global pandemic. I am confident in passing the torch to Shane as I believe this marks an appropriate time for a transition in leadership as the company embarks on its next growth phase. I am leaving the company in good hands with a trusted, proven leader and friend,” said Paul Hooper, outgoing CEO at Gigamon.

This powerful combination enables enterprises to assure security and compliance governance, speed root-cause analysis of performance bottlenecks, and lower operational overhead associated with managing modern hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructures.

The result, enterprises realize the full transformational promise of the cloud.

Buckley has served as the President and COO at Gigamon for four years where he has expanded the company’s business and markets worldwide.

Buckley’s experience in creating new market categories, such as the creation of the wide-area network (WAN) optimisation category, is invaluable as Gigamon expands its deep observability offerings.

Prior to joining Gigamon in 2018, Buckley served as the CEO at Xirrus and President and CEO of Rohati Systems bringing over 20 years of executive management experience to Gigamon.
