IT security company Sophos has set up a central Auckland office it says will allow it to meet growing demand in the region and build on its existing customer base.
It is staffed by Sophos territory manager Shirley Wigley, who has been with the vendor since April 2008, and newly-appointed sales engineer Chris Jackson-Cox. Wigley initially worked from a home office. “With the success of our New Zealand partners, the time was opportune for us to take the next step in our growth in the New Zealand market," says Sophos managing director Rob Forsyth. Jackson-Cox joins Sophos from KPMG's risk advisory services division, where he was a manager in the IT advisory team. He also spent three and a half years working for the UK Houses of Parliament, specialising in IT security. Jackson-Cox is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE).
