Gigamon appoints Chaim Mazal as the Chief Security Officer

Gigamon announced that Chaim Mazal has been named Chief Security Officer (CSO) and he joins the Gigamon executive leadership team and will report directly to President and CEO Shane Buckley.

Mazal will be responsible for global security, information technology, network operations, governance, risk, compliance, and internal business systems, as well as the security of Gigamon product offerings.

Prior to joining Gigamon, Mazal served in several executive leadership positions, most recently at Kandji as the senior vice president of technology and CISO. In his new position, Mr. Mazal will continue his involvement with the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Foundation and maintain his seat on several advisory boards, including Cloudflare, Gitlab, and Lacework.

“As today’s threat landscape becomes ever-more dangerous, I am excited to join the Gigamon leadership team to help mitigate security threats internally and externally, as we tap into the expansive value we can deliver with our deep observability pipeline,” said Mazal. “I look forward to helping chart our course in making our customer’s hybrid cloud infrastructure more secure and resilient.”

Coming off the heels of an incredibly successful growth year in which Gigamon was named the leader in the deep observability market with a 68 percent market share according to market intelligence firm the 650 Group, the company is well positioned to build upon its success in enabling the world’s most demanding IT organizations to manage and secure their hybrid cloud infrastructure while lowering operational overhead and complexity.
