Gigamon Inc., the leader in network visibility and analytics for digital innovators, today announced they have filed suit in Federal District Court against competitor, Apcon Inc., asserting that Apcon’s network solutions have used and are using Gigamon patent-protected innovations and developments, thereby infringing several of Gigamon’s U.S. patents.
