Company Expands Distribution Reach to South Africa

Gigamon®, a leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced it entered into a distributor agreement with AxizWorkgroup, a leading IT infrastructure distributor of world class hardware and software products and solutions in South Africa. With this agreement, Gigamon will further extend the availability of its patented Traffic Visibility Fabric™ to enable network visibility for security, performance and compliance monitoring.

“The addition of a Traffic Visibility Fabric across the network adds critical capabilities for organisations dealing with increasing network complexity and expanding traffic,” said Nigel Norris, Gigamon channel director. “Through the deployment of our Traffic Visibility Fabric monitoring solutions such as Application Performance Monitoring (APM) or Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) customers are able to achieve pervasive visibility to the traffic flows within their network. Working with a well-respected distributor like AxizWorkgroup allows us to deliver this solution effectively into the South African market and our technology complements and enhances the strong portfolio of enterprise solutions they currently provide to their reseller partners.”

AxizWorkgroup has a worldwide team of technology and sales professionals with a strong knowledge of both Gigamon solutions and the IT sector as a whole. This enables them to provide intelligent and insightful advice to reseller partners as they assist their South African clients in deploying, configuring and integrating Gigamon technology within their environments. AxizWorkgroup’s expertise will allow resellers and clients alike to reap the full benefits and value of Gigamon’s solutions.

“By partnering with Gigamon, our resellers are now able to provide their customers access to a robust network traffic visibility solution that enhances the network monitoring solutions used for security, performance and compliance across the network,” said Hildburg Hofer, AxizWorkgroup Gigamon business development manager. “Our South African reseller partners request solutions that enable best-of-breed networks, and adding the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Fabric to our portfolio allows us to fulfil this request and further prove our commitment to equipping our reseller partners with technology and platforms to strengthen their success,” added Hofer.
